Riddlesworth Estate is situated between Thetford and Diss and straddles the Norfolk Suffolk border. The estate woodlands comprise of five blocks of conifer, broadleaved and mixed woodlands. The principal species are Scots & Corsican pine, oak, sycamore & poplar. The adjacent farmland is predominantly arable, with some river side pasture. The woods are a dominant feature of the surrounding landscape. The majority of the woodland soils (Blackwater, Lodge Covert and Brickkiln) are deep well drained acidic sandy soils. There is a swath of deep peaty soil that crosses the estate, following the course of the Little Ouse River.
The woodlands are adjacent to Knettishall Heath SSSI, cited for its large area of heath and grassland on calcareous soils. The woodlands have great sporting potential with the numerous roe and muntjac deer residing in them. There is also potential to run a game shoot.
