The Nature Reserve is located within the Parish of Tovil near Maidstone. The site falls partially within the larger Loose Valley Conservation Area (LVCA) which includes an ‘L’ shaped piece of land extending from Boughton Quarries in the East, through Loose village to Tovil.

The site itself measures approximately 12 ha in size and forms part of the former grounds of Hayle Place, a Grade II listed residential property built during the mid-15th century, and renovated around 1750 with later Victorian additions.
