About this property

  • Pilgrims House is a substantial family home privately positioned in about 4 acres of grounds which include a delightful walled garden formerly of Ashmans Hall, together with useful garaging and outbuildings. The house was formerly the gardener's cottage and walled garden to Ashmans Hall, with the cottage being replaced with the current house in the late 1970's. The house, still incorporated into the walled area, totals 5400 sq ft of living space with spacious rooms throughout. Of particular note is the dining room and large sitting room with fireplace, both of which look out over the gardens. There is a further sitting room, kitchen/ breakfast room with pantry, and additional useful rooms such as study, entrance hall and store room.

    All bedrooms are on the first floor, and all enjoy views of the grounds and surrounding countryside. There are seven bedrooms, including a principal bedroom with dressing rooms and en suite bathroom, and four further bathrooms. All bedrooms are linked by a central landing, with two staircases.

    The property has been well maintained but would benefit
    from updating.

    The house is approached over Pilgrims Way, leading up to the entrance of Pilgrims House through iron gates mounted on brick pillars. The drive then sweeps up to the house with generous parking and turning area adjoining both the house and the 6 bay garage block. A drive forks off the main drive leading to a dual purpose outbuilding and hardstanding area.

    The grounds are mainly laid to lawn, with an assortment of
    specimen trees and shrubs throughout with mature hedged and tree lined boundaries. At the heart of the land is the wonderful walled garden, with herbaceous borders, trained clematis and roses and a large expanse of lawn which would lend itself to further landscaping. Adjoining the walled garden to is a substantial greenhouse, and a potting/storage shed of
    traditional construction.

It is so rare to come across a walled garden of this size that is not part of a country house, particularly on the edge of a lovely town
