Electric gates from the road give access to a driveway with parking. To the front of the house the garden is low maintenance with a gravelled surface and an attractive low wall with railings and pedestrian gate.

Formal Gardens lie to the rear and one side of the house with lawns and a good variety of mature trees and shrubs. There is a pleasant Patio Seating Area to the side of the house and a further Decked Seating Area to the rear.

There is a Detached Double Garage with electric roller shutter door, and the driveway then leads on to a gated Courtyard with power and light, comprising Four Stables and a Tack Room

The majority of the land is to the rear of the property and was, until relatively recently, used as a successful camping and glamping site with Four Camping Pitches and a gravel Customer Parking Area.

A galvanised gate from the Camping Field leads on to a Further Paddock with a water supply  and a Corral for livestock.

To the right-hand side of the house a Large Dutch Barn has a separate access from the road and Large Parking Area to the front. Within the barn there is an Office, Seating Area and Former Café and Kitchen. The current owners previously operated a Garden Centre and Café from the building, further information regarding the business is available on viewing.

In the Agent’s opinion a building of this size with independent access, could lend itself to a huge variety of uses, or indeed may have potential for residential development, subject to obtaining the necessary permissions. There are similar residential development sites in the local vicinity that have recently been passed for housing and it would be hoped that the local council would look favourably on this site. Please note however, that no applications for residential planning have been previously submitted.
