The land is located in a private, tranquille setting with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. The land is conveniently located a mile west from the quaint village of Glewstone. The land is also within easy reach of Ross on Wye and the cathedral city of Hereford.
To the east of the land there is a pond with bridge over and old fishing boat. An ecologists report was commissioned to record the field and pond's biodiversity. Wild ducks; geese; moorhens; owls; buzzards; swifts and swallows; gatekeeper and comma butterflies; dragonflies, even the occasional kingfisher, are counted among its regular visitors. Cowslips, lady's smock, snake's head fritillary, snowdrops, yellow rattle, and many other wild flowers all enjoy a place in its open spaces. A grassland management survey recorded a healthy mix of species, including Timothy, Yorkshire Fog and Cocksfoot grasses.
The small plantation of Salix Fragilaris willow was planted in 2013, chosen for its qualities as a sustainable wood source. Traditional field trees were planted in 2012, including field maple, oak, interspersed with ancient existing trees, including ash and alder. A line of sweet chestnut and horse-chestnut trees were planted along the southern edge of the field in 2012, marking the edge of an ancient field pathway once connecting the land with the then owner's other field on the opposite side of Luke Brook, as recorded in maps dated 1838.
The Luke Brook runs along the eastern length of the field, it teams with small fish and provides water source for much wildlife.
