The supply of farmland to the market last year was down 16% compared to the previous year, and down 8% compared to the 10-year average. Demand for land remains robust – especially from investors looking for more than a ‘safe’ investment in uncertain times – and this together with the diminishing supply, may help strengthen land values.

A 10k circular bridleway runs around the common and provides good hacking around open heath, woodland glades, grassland and a fabulous lakeside path. It is among the top rides in the county.

Set in 180 acres of stunning Surrey countryside, Parwood combines first-class livery and training facilities with some of the most diverse and picturesque riding opportunities in the country. Its impressive facilities include a floodlit outdoor arena, show jumping field, cushion track indoor arena and a superb cross country course.

To the south of the site is the historic Puttenham Golf Club, regarded by many to be one of the finest and friendliest golf clubs in the county. Its 18 hole, tree lined course is both challenging and picturesque.

For the horse racing enthusiast, Ascot Racecourse lies to the north, home to the world famous and prestigious Royal Ascot meeting.
