About this property

  • Croft Farm is a substantial period farmhouse of great character set in a secluded yet not isolated position. The original farmhouse is constructed from mellow red brick and timber frame under predominantly pitched tiled roofs. There are wonderful period features with open fireplaces fitted with wood burning stoves, exposed beams and studwork, French windows and exposed wooden floors. The heart of the house is situated around the kitchen/breakfast room which is opens into a sitting room with fireplace and a large opening to the conservatory overlooking the swimming pool & garden. Beyond lies an exceptionally spacious reception / dining room measuring 8.72m x 5.61m perfect for entertaining and with two sets of French doors opening to the gardens. The gardens & grounds surround the house with a heated swimming pool to one side, a manège beyond and an extensive range of period outbuildings including stables, a tack room, stores and a large period red brick barn. A track leads away through mature trees passing the natural pond to a series of paddocks with woodland beyond.

    Agents Note: There is a public footpath on land belonging to Croft Farm.

This house is full of incredible charm and the equestrian facilities are superb. I am particularly fond of the pool area.
