13 Acres - The property has 5 pasture fields with Cornish hedging boundaries. Furthermore and notably the property includes a Scheduled Monument (List Entry Number: 1003071). The site was one of the first Courtyard House settlements to be excavated (1933-5) using modern archaeological techniques. It contains two, probably three, courtyard houses and several huts set on four terraces rising from west to east. Close to the south-west side of the encircling wall are fragments of a further courtyard house attached to which are the remains of a hut and an unusual above ground fogou. To the east of this house are the probable remains of two further huts.
