The land is broadly divided into two parts; firstly a run of river meadows extending to about 32 acres and secondly the Standlake Common Nature Reserve which includes an expansive lake.
The permanent grassland comprises traditional river meadows which are managed traditionally and currently mowed for hay once a year followed by sheep grazing the aftermath. In addition to the river meadows there is a mowable acreage of permanent pasture to the south of the lake.
Standlake Common Nature Reserve comprises a former gravel quarry and the site was converted to wetland habitat following the completion of quarrying operations in 2000 and now hosts a wealth of wildlife, including over 170 recorded species of bird. The lake extends to about 34 acres in all and has been sympathetically planted to encourage bird species and bio diversity.
Two bird hides, situated on the northern and eastern shores of the lake, offer a tranquil place to relax and watch wildlife, conveniently located on the popular walking trail, the Windrush Path. This 5km trail through the Windrush valley links nearby Witney with the Thames Path national trail at Newbridge.
