The aircraft was landing in an open field; the surface wind was 280/6 to 8 kt and the pilot elected to land in this direction. The ground sloped upwards to a crest and then downwards; the grass was moist. The touchdown was normal but the aircraft failed to stop before it came to the perimeter hedge and dry stone wall and collided. The pilot considered that he had overestimated the braking effectiveness on the moist, downward sloping grass surface.
