A rural retreat set in an area of mixed woodland and small farms, this renovated, detached stone farmhouse with traditional hipped roof is just off a forester’s track and situated behind a small working strawberry farm. There are grassy areas to front and rear of property lead out to woods beyond, with pleasant views across fields. In the garden there are swings, a climbing frame and a slide for children.
