About this property

  • The Property
    The Old Rectory is a fine example of a Grade II listed Georgian house, offering spacious accommodation and retaining many quintessential period features throughout.

    The property has a ground floor, self-contained, one bedroom annexe, which could provide multi-generational living or used as a self contained let. The current owners run a highly successful and award winning Bed and Breakfast business using three of the main bedrooms within the house.

    Elegant reception rooms provide the heart of the home with both the drawing and dining rooms offering ample space, perfect for entertaining friends and family, and containing feature fireplaces, high ceilings and French doors opening to the garden.

    A study, to allow for working from home, is found on the first floor and has excellent views over the front garden and grounds.

    With seven further bedrooms in the main property, four of which have en suites and one currently used as a dressing room, the property makes for an ideal spacious family home.

    Outside
    The property sits within charming, secluded grounds of about two acres. The gardens wrap around the house to provide a good deal of natural privacy. Approached via gates, leading up to a large gravel driveway, allows space for numerous vehicles to be parked. The gardens are a variety of large lawns with mature shrubs, pond and summerhouse, a formal area, with ornamental box hedging and rockery, and a variety of trees. A ‘Snowdrop and Bluebell' woodland area provides natural habitat and beauty.

    An ideal entertaining space has been created by the vendors, to the rear of the house, with patio terrace and a sunny aspect. Various areas of the garden make ideal seating spots to appreciate and admire the many different elevations of the house.

    A detached coach house, with mezzanine floor, provides excellent characterful storage. Behind the coach house, a spacious, single storey barn allows for ideal storage of wood and garden machinery. There are also small stable style units within the annexe courtyard.
