The main farmstead is located down a very long private track, about 1 mile, giving a high degree of privacy sitting centrally within its land. The Grade II Listed farmhouse dates back to the early 18th Century using local stone. The accommodation is well proportioned and also has permission for further extension to create additional annexe accommodation.

The entrance hall, with flagstone flooring, leads to the sitting room with a feature inglenook fireplace and woodburner. The kitchen has an AGA, with an adjacent dining room and well fitted utility room leading to a wrap around garden room with a spiral staircase leading to an occasional bedroom space. There is also a two room cellar. Completing the existing ground floor accommodation is a double bedroom with en suite and the adjoining covered area gives the potential to create a delightful self contained annexe.

On the first floor the double aspect master bedroom has an en suite, and views over open countryside. There are an additional two double bedrooms on this floor, one with en suite. On the second floor there are two further attic bedrooms and a shower room.

To the front of the property is a lawned area with mature planting, with an attractive wildlife pond. At the rear there is a further garden area, with a large pond with seating, providing the perfect place to relax and entertain. There is also extensive parking close to the main house.

Farm Buildings
There is a substantial range of both traditional outbuildings and attached modern farm buildings which have been previously utilised in connection with a wedding venue business but are well suited to the farming operations associated with the holding.

The farmstead is accessed through your own land and comprises a very productive ring fenced block of arable land. The land is well divided into usable enclosures and served by internal tracks and margins and has been under a traditional arable rotation. The land is interspersed with mature hedgerows and trees and rises to a high point giving stunning panoramic views to all aspects. The land is classified as Grade 3 on the Land Classification maps of England and Wales.
