Barnard Dale cottage sits in about 1.5 acres of land. The main field is planted with some native species around the perimeter, and a couple of Golden Weeping Willows are planted as ornamental features.

There is provision for the main field to be easily subdivided into two with rope or electric fencing. Alternatively a permanent wooden fence could easily be erected.

A small paddock adjacent to the yard area and stables is planted with a selection of fruit and native trees as a small orchard. These trees are now starting to bear fruit. This paddock was formerly a large vegetable garden with good soil.

The grazings have previously been cut for hay in the summer.

Grazings currently extend to about 1 acre; additional grazing (about 1/2 acre) on the riverbank can be made available to purchasers by separate arrangement.
