.82.74 acres. An incredible block of land set on the north-western edge of Bath. This land currently forms part of Lansdown Grange Farm and this sale is a wonderful opportunity to buy a diverse and beautiful swathe of traditional English farmland on the edge of the city.
The land is predominantly pasture, some being arable capable, together with a small area of woodland. A significant area is steeply sloping, unimproved grassland, although around 50 acres is improved grassland and regularly mown for silage. The land has been relatively extensively farmed and used, primarily in recent years, for grazing of a beef suckler herd. Natural England have identified some of the grassland and the woodland as being Priority Habitats. None of the land is included in any agri-environment schemes such as Countryside Stewardship or Higher-Level Stewardship nor has the land been converted to organic status.
The land forms part of a beautiful valley at the south-western edge of the Cotswolds. The Cotswold Way, which starts in Bath, runs along the southern and western boundaries. No footpaths, bridleways or other rights of way cross the land. The land borders Kelston Round Hill and part is known as Dean Hill.
The land offers incredible views down the valley to Bath and across to Lansdown and Bath Racecourse. At its peak it is 195 metres (640 feet) above sea level, making many of Bath's landmarks visible, including the Bath Abbey and Beckford's Tower to name two. There are also fine views to the south and views towards the Mendip Hills.
The land lies within The Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) but outside the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the City of Bath.
