    Lot 1 Rectory Farmhouse is a charming three bedroom Grade II listed timber framed farmhouse dating primarily from the 16th Century with various later additions, the last being in the mid-2000s. The house provides accommodation over two floors and is set within a pretty lawned garden surrounded by mature trees and hedges. Rectory Farmyard provides a range of farm buildings which are directly accessed from the B1118. The farmyard lies adjacent to Rectory Farmhouse.

    The land has been farmed in a typical arable rotation by a local contractor for a number of years under a Farm Business Tenancy.
