Laurel Farm provides a great opportunity to purchase a complete amenity farm which has been most recently utilised for free range egg production set in a glorious rural setting being surrounded by its own land. The property benefits from spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. At the heart of the property is an attractive period farmhouse with further potential to create a fabulous country home together with a range of useful outbuildings and well maintained paddocks.

The property offers further potential to expand the existing accommodation if required, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
