The Old Farm is listed Grade II Georgian farmhouse of special architectural and historic interest, with the outbuildings included for group value. Built 250 years ago, the buildings encircle the original cobbled yard and are now within our totally walled garden. This is a special place. We have lived here for more than 50 years.
The detached Coachhouse was converted about 20 years ago. It is quiet, comfortable, well insulated & equipped, spacious (834 Sq Ft/77 SqM) & in outbuilding for bicycles
