Bridge House Farmhouse is conveniently situated on Barugh Lane and comprises an impressive detached brick built property under a pantile roof. The 5 bedroom property is Grade II listed and is set in open countryside. The ground floor provides a front entrance hall, kitchen, lounge, snug, snooker room, office and utility room. The first floor provides three double bedrooms, two further single bedrooms, two bathrooms and rear staircase leading to the kitchen. To the second floor there lies a large attic room. Externally the property benefits from lawned gardens to the front and to the side which are enclosed by traditional brick walls and post and rail fences. A paved patio area leads through to a domestic outbuilding.

Swift and Swallow Cottages
Swift and Swallow Cottages comprise a pair of two bedroomed semi-detached cottages converted from a traditional brick built barn under a pantile roof. The cottages are of similar internal layout and the accommodation briefly comprises kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and family bathroom.

To the rear of the cottages there lies a paved patio area and a traditional brick built cart shed. Access to the cottages is taken around the rear of the farmhouse.

The cottages have previously been operated successfully as a holiday let enterprise and also as longer term residential lets. Although in need of modernisation, the cottages offer a purchaser versatile accommodation and the opportunity to generate a secondary income stream.

Farm Buildings
Bridge House Farm benefits from an extensive range of traditional red brick agricultural buildings under pantile roofs. The buildings briefly comprise a large double height traditional barn (20m x 5m) with a single storey lean to, a range of Grade II listed traditional buildings of brick and pantile construction and several traditional cart sheds.

The buildings briefly comprise a modern Dutch Barn (18m x 12m), grain store with capacity for approximately 600 tonnes of on floor storage (24m x 18m), and a concrete portal framed building currently utilised as a machinery store but has previously housed cattle (24m x 10m).
