Presnerb and extend to about 396.94 acres (160.64 ha). Presnerb Farmhouse, cottage and outbuildings lie to the north-east of Lot 2 and immediately to the west of the River Isla.

Presnerb offers the opportunity for a livestock
enterprise with a good range of outbuildings,
permanent pasture, rough grazings and hill ground, together with a small area of woodland. In addition there are two ponds which, together with the future replanting scheme over recently felled woodland areas, could provide the opportunity for the establishment and development of a varied low ground shoot to complement the established stalking over the hill ground of the subjects.
