The Property

Approached across open fields, a sweeping gravel drive leads to this magnificent stone built Grade II listed farmhouse, dating in parts from the 13th century with natural stone walls with a small area of ancient black and white relief and a tiled roof. This charming and historic house has a picturesque moat on the western side with a landscaped garden and pastureland amounting in all to just over seven acres. Originally part of an important manorial complex thought to belong to the Berkeley family and the Crown this charming property is packed full of original features including panelled doors, large inglenook fireplaces, ceiling beams and window seats etc. There is a plethora of outbuildings including the ivy clad remains of a castle which completes the Constable effect of this rural idyll.


Yate Court Farm is located at the end of a very quiet lane in beautiful countryside outside the hamlet of Rangeworthy. The property is wonderfully rural but yet within striking distance of Bristol and enjoys great transport connections to London, The Midlands and the South West.
Wickwar with its wide high street and amenities is close by and includes a newsagent, general store, antique shop, church and public house.
Chipping Sodbury is to the South and has the appearance of a classic market town with an unusually wide main street with a rich variety of architectural style from early Tudor through the 16th and 17th centuries into the grander Georgian and terraced late Victorian. There is a very good range of shops, pubs and other facilities within the High Street.
Both the M4 motorway (J18) and M5 motorway (J14) are approximately four miles away. Bristol Parkway railway station is less than ten miles away.
There are excellent primary and secondary schools nearby and a good range of private schools within the City of Bristol, Bath and Westonbirt.
Sporting facilities included golf at Chipping Sodbury, Cotswold Edge, The Players Club, Tracey Park and Castle Combe, hunting with the Beaufort, polo at Westonbirt and Cirencester Park, racing at Cheltenham, Bath and Chepstow, Badminton and Gatcombe Park Horse Trials and water sports at The Cotswold Water Parks.

Garden And Grounds

The property is approached by a drive that proceeds through the pasture either side culminating at a gravelled drive flanked by strips of lawn enclosed by well stocked borders and stone walls. The drive continues to a parking area in front of the house where there is a carport for two cars attached to a stone outbuilding, believed to be a former laundry but now used as a store. An additional store is attached.
Immediately outside the house is a flagstone terrace and a flagstone path leads to the gardens which are laid to lawn and enclosed by well stocked and mature borders and a stone wall. A further terrace can be found with a loggia. A wall to waist height seperates the terrace from the moat some 20 foot down.
There are numerous outbuildings and a mixture of traditional and modern buildings. A courtyard accessed off the gravelled drive is enclosed by a stone wall. To the far end, is a single storey open fronted stone barn which, together with a footprint of an outbuilding of block construction could be converted into ancillary accommodation (subject to the necessary consents in respect of which application is currently being made).
Also accessed from this courtyard are the remains of the former manorial property which is believed to date back to the 13th Century.
Further buildings include a building with two stables and further section currently used as a hen house, two open fronted three bay agricultural buildings ideal for storage.
