Agents note:

On the western boundary this property adjoins an area of woodland that is owned by neighbours Sutton Hall Farm. Our clients have cleared and restored this area and have written permission to use it, so there is currently no boundary fence separating the two areas. Interested parties should make their own further enquiries about the possible continuance of this arrangement.
