The Land

The land surrounds Pen Y Rallt Farm largely in one ring fence and extends to a considerable 98.66 acres of pasture. The land is in very good heart and appears to be well fenced with a piped borehole water supply to nearly all of the enclosures. The property benefits from a borehole and spring fed supply plus the benefit of natural tributaries that run through the property. All of the land is traversable with vehicles and capable of producing good fodder and arable crops. A particular feature of the property is that it has the benefit of its own quarry which is ideal for creating hardstanding areas and road ways through the farm. The land has been split into conveniently sized enclosures for the ease of management and has been farmed to a high standard in recent years. The land also has the benefit of natural shade which has been provided by areas of native woodland which is becoming an increasingly valuable natural resource.
