The three-storey farmhouse has five bedrooms and is positioned centrally on the holding adjacent to the main agricultural buildings. The accommodation briefly comprises:  front entrance hall, kitchen, utility room, the old bakehouse, living room, dining room,  five bedrooms, family bathroom and 3 additional attic rooms.

The farm is part of a large commercial shoot which can be released, if necessary, or renegotiated after February 1, 2017.
