We manage the land as a nature reserve, so you can take a walk around the woods, spot some wildlife and enjoy the tranquility. There are multiple photo opportunities and we encourage you to share the photos from your very own estate!

Buy a Plot

We define the exact location of each plot using the UK Ordnance Survey system which is accurate to the nearest millimetre.

We also provide you with an estimate of the latitude and longitude of your plot to help you locate it with GPS systems that do not use the OS system such as the iPhone and many inexpensive GPS devices whose primary purpose is car travel. Using such familiar items you will be able to reach the area of your plot.

Alternatively, you may use another online service such as Google Maps: simply enter the latitude and longitude as printed on your Plot ID Card.

Becoming a Lord or Lady

Simply request a reissue of documents  and we will post your new personalised documents to you for a small additional charge.

Some of our customers ask their bank to add their new title to their bank account and their credit cards.

Passports and driving licences do not display titles, and as such, cannot be changed.

Buy a Plot

We cannot sell you a title. We are simply acknowledging your right to use the title of Lord or Lady of Ardmore, which is our intellectual property. If you prefer not to assume a title, you will be given that option when you make your land purchase. Our legal advice is that “anyone can, subject to requirements of good faith, call themselves whatever they like, including “Lord” or “Lady“.” We do not know of any jurisdiction where this is not true. It is harmless fun.
