About this property

  • A pretty detached period farm house located in the most idyllic and tranquil of settings with extensive stabling in around 7.89 acres, set amidst glorious countryside.

    Approached via a driveway flanked by a lawn on one side and outbuildings on the other, the cottage sits well back from the lane. The accommodation consists of sitting room, dining room, kitchen, WC and store room on the ground floor. The first floor offers three bedrooms and a bathroom.

    The cottage has delightful wrap around gardens and to the rear overlooks the acreage and wonderful rural views beyond.
    Three stable blocks are set around a courtyard, offering excellent equestrian facilities.
