    About this property

    • THE FISHERY Meadow Farm Fishery consists of three purpose built lakes, Meadow Lake, Willow Lake and Mallard Lake situated in 17 acres of low lying meadow. They are spring fed which artificially raises the existing high water table. The lakes are stocked with rainbow, blue and brown trout to a density of 150 to the acre and are restocked regularly on a 'put and take' basis, ensuring consistent stocking levels. Although initially man-made, care has been taken to make the lakes look both natural and attractive, it's hard to tell that they haven't always been there. All three lakes have islands which help attract a diverse range of wildlife The sale includes fish stocks within the lakes. Savills are not liable for the quality or quantity of the fish stocks, nor any death or disease that may affect such stocks. Purchasers must satisfy themselves as to the quality and quantity of the fish stocks prior to purchase. THE HOUSE This attractive six bedroom farm house was originally built in the 18th century. It has been extended and modernised over the years to produce a versatile family home. The accommodation is arranged over two floors with rooms well-proportioned in size. The ground floor consists of four reception rooms including, triple aspect garden room incorporating two bay windows, dining room with exposed beams, snug and spacious sitting room with views over the garden to the rear. All four reception rooms have wood burning stoves. There are two fully functional kitchens which have potential to be knocked into one large open plan kitchen diner. There are two staircases leading to the first floor. The master bedroom has built in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. There are four further doubles and one single bedroom along with two family bathrooms which have recently been refurbished. Outside the gardens wrap around the property. There is an attractive patio to the back and side of the house that offers a fantastic spot in which to relax or entertain, while the lawned areas are a delight for the keen gardener, or the perfect opportunity for younger members of the family to play. OUTBUILDINGS Upon entering Meadow Farm Fishery, on the left hand side of the driveway is an agricultural barn with wood store and tool shed.
