*Rented out with permission of the local village Parish Council the small paddock at the side. This is not guaranteed to continue with any new owners of the property and is done on an annual basis by agreement with the parish council and whilst it could be available to any new owners, this would be subject to their agreement. Any figures agreed moving forward would have to be at the full discretion of the Parish Council.
* Please note there is a public footpath running along the Riverside of the garden, but is well screened from the property.
*Harriers is part of the Exmoor National Park Knotweed Control Project (2012/13) along with some 950 sites across the National Park at that time. We understand that some Knotweed was found on the very northern fringe of the gardens adjoining the public footpath. These sites are treated under the management of the Exmoor National Park Authority. Our clients are happy to provide more detailed information upon request.
*Land plan indicates two trees with TPO's (marked A and B), Neighbour has historical right of access from their rear garden over dotted line to Point C on plan (to Public Footpath)

*Fishing rights – Although the property has river frontage it does not own the fishing rights. We understand from our clients that they may be available but neither the owners or the agents have made recent enquiries with the owner in this regard but are happy to do so if these may be of interest (no warranty can be made in this regard)
