Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Beautifully situated country house with five well-presented holiday cottages. Heated pool within original walled garden, carp pond, paddocks and orchard. In all about 8 acres.

Not surprisingly, Goodmans House is Listed Grade II as being of historic or architectural interest and has many of the hallmarks of a Georgian property. Records show that a dwelling has been on this site since at least the fourteenth century with a reference to William Godman in 1332. In recent years the house has been the subject of a restoration programme, which has included a new welsh slate roof, new bathrooms and redecoration. The house retains a number of features synonymous with the Georgian era, including panelled doors, sash windows with shutters, and exquisite plaster cornices. Another notable improvement includes a second floor conversion of the attic space, which now provides a good size guest bedroom and adjoining shower room. The grounds provide a perfect setting for Goodmans House, gently sloping with many mature trees, lawned areas, space for those wishing to keep horses and a particularly attractive feature is the Roman style swimming pool set within the original walled gardens.
