help plz thx

I'm listening to the audiobook of Hippopotamus by Stephen Fry. He's a British dude.

In this last chapter, he said a word (a noun) that sounds like "haha." But it's not "haha," because I looked it up, and that's not a word. It describes an . . . area. Like, there's a lawn, and a slope, and then at the bottom of that there's a "haha." You can cross the "haha." I guess it's like a field or a moor or something. I think he's in Scotland at the time, if that helps any.

Does anyone know what this word is, and how it's spelled?

By the way, I'm loving the book so far. It's narrated by a cranky, whiskey-drinking poet, so if you happen to be a cranky, whiskey-drinking poet, you might like it too.

EDIT: Found! It is a ha-ha. I . . . sort of can't believe I didn't try to hyphenate it myself in the first place.
