Hollandridge Farm, Pishill with Stonor, is located high up in the Chilterns alongside an ancient ridgeway spur, called Knightsbridge Lane. It was formerly part of the Stonor Estate (see 1725 map). Two good size dew ponds, fed possibly by a spring, supply the essential water for the documented livestock, i.e. cows, sheep, horses, and pigs (see Inventories of Nicholas Smythe of 1628 and Nicholas Cowdrey of 1721).  The mainly brick-built farmhouse dates to c 1800, with signs of an earlier core. Two timber-framed barns of 3 and 5 bays respectively, the latter has an outshut, porch, and central threshing floor; 6-bay timber-framed stable and other service buildings are grouped around the large farmyard.
