This site is centred around a glacial hollow or kettle-hole pool and a historic moat. The surrounding farmland is mostly pasture and rough grassland with good hedges and an area of planted broad-leaved woodland and natural willow scrub to provide suitable foraging habitat. The site is located in eastern Montgomeryshire at the centre of the Welsh distribution of great crested newt Triturus cristatus. This is the largest known population of the species in central Wales.
