The fine and historic principal house at the northern end of the Estate, is approached up a long drive and fully protected by its own parkland and woodland, offering complete privacy.
As you move south through the Estate, you cover rolling arable and grassland interspersed with woods and copses. The land flows around the village of Lover and hamlet of Bohemia, where there are numerous village paddocks offering potential for alternative uses, subject to the necessary planning consents. Around the fringes, there are groups of farm buildings and individual barns, some providing support for the agricultural land and others now in commercial use. At the south east end of the Estate lies the magnificent Loosehanger Woods, which has been well managed and provides numerous compartments of both broadleaf and softwood trees. Loosehanger provides considerable environmental and sporting appeal.
Up until the last few years the Estate has run an enjoyable shoot focused primarily on the parkland woods and the land and woods at Milkhills Park Farm. In addition, the Estate holds large herds of principally fallow and roe deer. The stalking across the whole Estate is currently let under licence.
Finally, the land rises to a ridge on the south west boundary of the Estate where a small farmstead provides a typical New Forest agricultural holding.
The Estate is classically diversified, with residential appeal, commercial buildings, farmland and woodland, as well as being of immense environmental importance and sporting interest.
