The farm extends in total to 198.29 acres (80.25 hectares) and is contained within a ring fence with useful sized enclosures bounded by  fenced Cornish hedge banks. It surrounds the farm buildings on three sides and is all in pasture which is gently sloping or level and is well serviced by both mains and natural water (bore hole and streams).

The adjoining parish roads together with a green lane to the north of the buildings provide excellent access to all the fields. Part of the former North Cornwall railway can be seen to the south of the farm but it is well  fenced off and has grown in with some scrub. There are also some pockets of woodland on the farms boundaries, but on the whole there is little waste.  

The farm will be found to be in  tremendous heart and is capable of growing superb grass crops for grazing and foraging. It has undergone a excellent programme of reseeding and in the past, part of the farm has been in an arable rotation and grown such crops as maize and spring barley. 

Situated to the west of the farm buildings, a hard-core track leads to an ‘Endurance’ 50kw turbine which the current owner commissioned in April 2014. It has a 20 year agreement (Feed In Tariff) which is index linked and currently returns some £30,000 per year. It also provides about half of the electricity required for the farm buildings.
