The house’s origins can be traced back 750 years and the are some amazing period features, including a medieval hallway. Plus, there is plenty of space to socialise and entertain together, or to find your own slice of solitude.
Unwind in the lounge with its plump sofas and real fire. Or retire to the drawing room where you can watch TV, make use of the WiFi, listen to music through the Sonos sound system or put your feet up beside the log burner. If you’re in the mood for a few live tunes, there’s a piano for a good old sing-along.
The heart of the house is the farmhouse kitchen, which has a slate floor and wooden beams, where a huge dining table seating up to 16 people invites you to sit, dine and drink in good company. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need including an electric range oven with five induction rings, two fridges, a microwave, a double toaster and two dishwashers.
There’s also a study room for anyone who wants total peace and quiet. Should the idea of fun and games come calling, head to the small games room outside where you can commence a friendly ping pong tournament!
If you return from country walks and playing outside dirty, there’s a handy boot room with a cloakroom with a WC and basin where you can store muddy boots and get cleaned up.
The farmhouse has six bedrooms. Bedroom one comprises a super-king-size bed and two single beds with an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom two has a super-king-size bed and a private bathroom down the landing. Bedroom three has a super-king-size bed and a single bed with a private bathroom down the landing. Bedroom four has a super-king-size bed and two single beds and an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom five has a super-king-size bed and an en-suite shower room.

Outside, there is a terrace with a charcoal barbecue, a fire pit and outdoor furniture for hosting family meals and leisurely celebratory affairs alfresco. While the hot tub is perfect for relaxing, for those with a little more energy there’s giant Jenga and Connect 4, boules and croquet.
