    Danesford is set within its own extensive lightly wooded mature park-like grounds that extend to an area of approximately four acres. There is also a small spring-fed lake.

    Sitting alongside the grazing land is an outdoor school with sand surface and post-and-rail perimeter.

    There is a stable block containing loose boxes and store barns as well as kennels.

    The main home is described as “a splendid family home of commanding appearance having an abundance of character features.” 

    It has accommodation set across two floors and it boasts five bedrooms. Externally and in close proximity to the house are two cottages — one one-bedroom and one two-bedroom — and garaging.

    Features of the ground level of the main home include a series of generous reception rooms and a garden-side ‘live-in’ kitchen/family room with dining space, central island and Aga.

    The cosy cottages are perfect for additional family, guest or staff accommodation.

    Outside, there is also a walled enclosure housing an open-air heated swimming pool with its own detached pavilion.
