This former dairy farm is believed to date from around 1750, but since then it has served a number of uses, including the village pub, sweet shop and a pottery. Despite its many uses the property retains many of its original features and has gained a great deal of character throughout its varied history. Unlike many properties of its age, the accommodation is both spacious and well-proportioned, providing a degree of flexibility more akin to a modern home.

The present owners have adapted a ground floor wing of the building to create a sizeable master suite with walk in wardrobe and en suite bathroom, with double French doors leading onto a side patio. The room could be easily adapted to accommodate visiting relatives or paying guests if desired, or as an additional living space. The remaining ground floor rooms centre around a large reception hall, the traditional farmhouse kitchen on one side and a generous sitting room on the other. On the first floor there are a further 4 bedrooms, the majority with feature fireplaces and useful built in storage cupboards, all with pleasant views.

There is access to the rear of the house via a gravelled driveway, which leads to a wide turning and parking area and recently constructed timber car port with 3 bays. A stone paved pathway leads from here to the rear door, passing a lawned garden and well maintained borders.
