Set in delightful, unspoilt countryside, Chatcull Old Hall is an attractive and spacious farmhouse that dates back 300 years and retains many original features, including a wealth of beams, oak panelling, and a superb inglenook fireplace. It boasts a secluded, lawned garden, surrounded by pretty shrubs, and is set within the grounds of a working arable and dairy farm (close to the owners’ home), where visitors enjoy shared use of a hard tennis court.
