The nursery occupies an island site within a triangle of country lanes from two of which there is a good access to the site. The layout is for nursery production but there is car parking, good loading and turning areas and a field on the eastern side of Mill Lane opposite the nursery which is ideal for overflow parking for retail customers. The nursery has been established for over 60 years and has good customer relations.

The farmhouse is a brick and tiled chalet style detached dwelling constructed post war following the grant of planning consent subject to the usual Agricultural Occupancy Condition. The EPC rating is E.

There are 5 principal nursery glasshouses. Please see the property particulars for further information on measurements. In addition there is a general purpose steel framed building (60’ x 30’) used for soil mixing and storage with adequate standing out ground. There are also seven polytunnels of various sizes in the north eastern part of the site. These are served by a central tarmac roadway.

To the south of the farmhouse there is a small amenity area planted with trees and an arable parcel opposite the land. To the east, Summerfield Paddock is a small grass field with long road frontage and has good natural drainage characteristics.

The land is classified as Grade I & II on the Agricultural Land Classification Plan for England and Wales.

Total site area amounts to approximately 5.65 acres.
