Enjoy a little bit of country life……
The lovely unspoilt landscape that surrounds the farm is a haven for wildlife with hare, deer, pheasants, sparrow hawks, wild ducks, moorhens & partridge being frequent visitors. The house is surrounded by woodland which is home to so many birds, you will often hear the Woodpecker at work. Horses graze the fields around the house with cattle beyond.
