Main House - The Farmhouse is a most attractive traditional property, being Listed Grade II as a house of architectural and historic interest and offers well-arranged accommodation on two floors.

The rooms flow particularly well with the drawing room linking in with the dining room. All principal rooms enjoy fine views over the grounds. The kitchen breakfast room adjoins a pantry area and the back staircase provides access to the first floor. The garden room, family room and annexe kitchen occupy the northern wing of the house. The charming garden room enjoys access onto the terrace.
The extensive bedroom accommodation with two shower rooms are located on the first floor off an impressive landing area. There are six bedrooms in total, the principal bedroom featuring a dressing room and en-suite bathroom.
