Yard Area
There is a large yard area of concrete and hard standing, linking the various buildings, with further area of land to the west of the buildings used as a dung midden.

Land at Woodcockdale Farm
The land in Lot 1 extends to about 26.60 Ha (65.73 Acres) in total and surrounds the farmhouse, farm buildings and is bound to the north and west by the River Avon, and to the south by the Union Canal and the A706. The land has been principally classified as Grade 3.1 by the James Hutton Institute. The majority of this land is down to a mix of arable and pasture ground with some small areas of amenity woodland located to the north of the farm steading and along the southern bank of the River Avon. The land is of varying aspect rising from 40m adjacent to the River Avon on the northern boundary to 78m above sea level at its highest point adjacent to the public road. The fields have benefitted from a healthy application of farmyard manure over the years and lie in a contiguous block with the majority of the field parcels being accessed directly from the farm steading or via field gates which lead from the A706.
