Castle House Farmhouse

Castle House Farmhouse enjoys a wonderful position, tucked away off the beaten track and situated alongside a working farm. There is an impressive paddock immediately in front of the property with a far-reaching vista to enjoy from both the house and gardens. The flexible and substantial accommodation offers up to five bedrooms with four reception rooms and annex potential on the ground floor. A luxurious en suite and dressing area for the master bedroom and two further house bathrooms will keep you, your family and guests comfortable, whilst all of the first floor bedrooms enjoy a stunning view over the paddock towards the hills. Outside, there are impressive gardens to the side and front and a separate fenced vegetable garden. There is a superb opportunity to utilise the large, timber-framed buildings which are both substantial and have direct gated access to the paddock.


A pathway leads up to the main front door of the property, flanked by wisteria and opening into an entrance vestibule and onwards to the spacious and welcoming hall. Turning right from here leads through to the hub of the home: the large, farmhouse-style kitchen and dining room, which has a characterful stone flagged floor and a central Aga and companion with brick surround. This is a wonderful room in which to spend time with friends and family, enjoying the views of the garden, paddock and hills beyond. There is convenient access to the double garage, perfect for bringing shopping in from the car, whilst the separate utility room ensures that the essentials can be kept neatly out of the way.

Double doors from the kitchen open into the garden room, creating a huge space for entertaining. There are windows to all sides and further doors leading outside, allowing your guests to enjoy views of the surrounding countryside.

The snug is a comfortable room with a feature stove and ceiling beams, providing a quiet space in which to relax with a book or simply look out over the garden.

Turning left from the entrance hall takes you through to a part of the home which could easily be used as annex accommodation if required. The main living room is positioned to this side of the property and features a central fireplace and bay window offering views of the garden. An archway leads through to an additional space at the rear, currently used as a music room with French doors filling the area with natural sunlight and opening up to one of the patios surrounding the property.

A door from the music room leads through to the study, which could easily be used as a fifth bedroom and also has access to the side garden and patio.

Accessible from the main hall, the formal dining room has a feature fireplace and also benefits from a bay window taking advantage of the vista to the front.

To the first floor, the spacious landing gives access to four double bedrooms and both bathrooms. Positioned at the far end of the property, the large, dual aspect master bedroom feels very light and airy with its vaulted ceiling and windows to two sides. There is a dressing area with built-in wardrobes and cupboards, along with an en suite which has a step-in shower cubicle and is well-lit via the Velux-style window.

The remaining three bedrooms, one of which has a full range of built-in wardrobes, are serviced by the good-sized bathroom with free-standing bath and shower cubicle, along with a second shower room, finished in a modern style with a walk-in shower and drenching head.


The property is perfectly situated to take in the glorious views from every direction. In addition, there are beautiful gardens surrounding the house, with a variety of seating areas to enjoy the sunshine or shade at different times of the day.

For those with green fingers, there is a well-stocked kitchen garden with mature fruit and vegetable plots, along with flower beds, shrubbery, stretches of lawn and landscaping.

There are two substantial timber outbuildings, which offer flexibility for a number of uses depending upon your requirements and preferences. One of these is enclosed whilst the other has an open front and both enjoy direct access via the front yard through to the paddock.


The paddock is a well-maintained single grass field, fully fenced and flat, measuring approximately 2.5 acres. There is access for larger vehicles via a gate adjacent to the property and a further field gate giving access to the outbuildings and yard area.
