The smallholding is outside Newbridge-on-Wye just off the Beulah road. It is 40-acre consisting of hedgerow edged permanent pasture. The species rich scrubby bank used to be termed semi natural rough grazing. The heavily wooded Estyn Brook curves around the holding then enters the river Wye 1.5km away. The woodland is rather special and consists of 8-acres of mixed broadleaf with mature oaks, beech, ash with hazel understory. The side land is acid rich pasture with an old chestnut coppice. The two ponds are not very extensive yet. They both provide reasonable habitat but one in particular needs improvement.
