Church Farm House is a charming detached Grade II Listed house, thought to date from the late 16th century. With a traditional timber frame construction and thatched roof, the property has plenty of period character, together with four reception rooms, four bedrooms and extensive outbuildings, including a stables complex with paddocks.

Inside, the property boasts attractive accommodation, with exposed, irregular timbers throughout lending the property plenty of charm. There is a welcoming sitting room, with an impressive brick fireplace, housing a woodburning stove, plus a dining room, a cosy snug and a light, airy, south-facing conservatory. The kitchen and breakfast room has an electric Aga and an additional integrated hob and oven, while there is also a useful utility room.

Upstairs there are four good-sized bedrooms, including the large main bedroom, which benefits from an en suite shower room. There is a family bathroom, whilst the fourth bedroom, which could also be utilised as a study, has access to a cloakroom.
