The property is approached over the moor and leads down to a private driveway, to a paddock and over a cattle grid. There are generous gardens surrounding the house which include lawned areas with herbaceous borders and beds together with a separate, fenced, former vegetable garden. There is a large terrace at the front of the property which is designed to take full advantage of the properties position. There is an extensive gravelled driveway with parking beyond for multiple vehicles and a detached Garage with useful storage.

Large Agricultural Building 52’ x 30’ (about 16m x 9m) which would lend itself to internal stabling to compliment the grazing land and the wonderful potential out-riding on the moors.
