Externally

Lower Wood Farm is a working cattle and sheep farm with the cattle being housed in an agricultural building behind the stables in the winter months. The farm itself is however well screened from the property by the stable building. Please note: construction of a concrete muck clamp is to be undertaken over summer 2022, which is to be cladded with a roof.

The property benefits from equestrian facilities to include 5 stables and 3 acres of grazing split over two paddocks. There is storage space within the traditional farm building housing the stables. The stables are approx. 12ft x 14ft in size although each may vary.

The fencing lining the driveway is to be renewed prior to the letting. The boundary is a mixture of mature hedging and post and rail with pig wire.
