The village of Lamerton, approximately 5 miles distant, boasts a popular inn with restaurant, primary school, church, and a garage filling station.

THE PROPERTY
A very well located 200 acre livestock and former dairy farm in a quality and popular farming area. Substantial and character Grade II listed farmhouse, range of traditional barns with potential and a modern building, separate range of modern buildings and approximately 192 acres (77.70ha)of grassland and 7.8 acres (3.19ha) of amenity woodland with sporting potential, in a ring fence with road frontage on all sides. From the house there are extensive views over some of the land to an attractive landscape and valley views in the distance.
Wrixhill has previously been run as a dairy farm and, more recently, as a stock farm.
