    The land is divided into paddocks for grazing, woodland and landscaped gardens with a natural spring fed pond.

    Situated directly to the east of the main house are the brick-built stables and tack room.

    There are several other outbuildings around the property, ideal for storage or conversion subject to planning.

    The main house is an 18th century farmhouse with four bedrooms.

    The house has been extended into the attached barn blending original features with contemporary design.

    There is also a two-bedroom lodge suitable for additional family accommodation or as a holiday let.
