South Court is a splendid Victorian country house situated on the edge of the village, approached through wooden gates and up a long gravelled drive.
Typical of its period South Court has rendered elevations, sash windows and a slate roof. The principal rooms have open fireplaces, face south and west and are well proportioned with high ceilings and a fine outlook.
A welcoming arched reception hall gives access to all the main rooms and the cloakroom and cellar. The kitchen/breakfast room provides a less formal living area in conjunction with the sitting room which has fitted bookshelves and a pair of casement doors.

On the first floor there are five bedrooms, two bathrooms and a shower room, all stylishly fitted. Two of the bathrooms have underfloor heating.
