The Patch: Measuring approximately .89 of an acre, this area has been registered by the current owner for a holding number so that livestock can be kept there. The current owners have installed an area for their two pigs and twenty free range chickens, the excess eggs are currently sold to locals at the roadside with an honesty box which will be included in the sale. The rest of the patch is mainly grass, but with some mature trees including an apple tree. The grass is kept short by two sheep, and there is also a duck pond and duck house, which along with the owner’s bee hive make great use of the space! Although the livestock are not included in the sale, the animal housing could be. The owner also suggests that there is scope to apply for planning permission to build a dwelling on the land.
