    Tern Farmhouse is an immaculate Georgian style farmhouse situated in an elevated position, enjoying far-reaching views of the surrounding countryside. With accommodation across two storeys, the farmhouse has been fully modernised and renovated throughout to an exceptional standard, combining traditional farmhouse character with modern family living accommodation.

    The gardens at Tern Farmhouse have undergone a significant scheme of hard and soft landscaping. They provide features such as a small kitchen garden, a natural pond, and an all-weather tennis court located to the south of the main house. The Bothy is situated to the north of the grounds, constructed of timber frame and red brick under a clay tile roof the building has been given a Grade II listing.

    Situated to the south of Tern Farmhouse sits an extensive array of both single and double-storey traditional farm buildings. Constructed of traditional red brick under tile roofs, the buildings internally retain original features such as, wooden cattle housing, piggery stalls and stabling.

    A range of farm structures facilitates the storage of machinery, workshop operations and provides storage for grain and potatoes. The primary modern sheds, situated to the west of the yard, were constructed to the highest modern standards. An additional set of three traditional agricultural storage buildings are located directly to the north of Tern Farmhouse on Tern Lane, which have potential for conversion, subject to obtaining planning permission.

    The agricultural land at Tern Farm spans approximately 524 acres of largely Grade 2 land.

    Tern Farm benefits from an irrigation system across the whole, supplied by three reservoirs located to the south. The farm benefits from an abstraction licence from the River Tern, for both irrigation and the replenishment of the reservoirs.
