THE LAND AND OUTBUILDINGS The Land at Orchard House consist of approximately 3.88 hectares (9.6 acres) of permanent pasture. Lying to the south of the property and overlooked by the house it provides ideal grazing land and adds hugely to property as a whole. Historically the land has been used as meadow land with an annual crop of hay taken; a testament to its productive nature. It is however of a sufficient size to have various and yet simultaneous uses, be it pony paddocks, a small holding and/or its current use as a hay meadow. In addition to the land there are three stables with water and electricity connection and a storage barn and consequently the property as a whole represents an ideal package for any small holder and/or equine user.
