Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in the 16th century and subsequently refashioned in the 18th century, with an east range added in the 17th century, Manor Farm is a fine Grade II listed example of a larger, 2 storey Dorset farmhouse.(N.B. An additional 5.49 acres of pasture may be available by separate negotiation).

The house retains many period features including fine fireplaces, stone mullion windows, window seats and ceiling timbers. The front door opens into the dining room, which has a fireplace and carved chequer-board ceiling timbers. A door leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room, which has a 4 oven oil- fired AGA (green), and utility room. A stone-flagged corridor leads off the dining room, with doors off to the cloakroom and the reception rooms of the house. These include the light and airy study and the sitting room, which overlooks the garden and has a fine stone fireplace. At the far end of the corridor double doors open to the drawing room, which also has windows on two sides, an inglenook fireplace, a window seat and ceiling timbers. On the first floor off the landing are the master bedroom with walk- through dressing area and en-suite bathroom, three further double bedrooms, a single bedroom and two bathrooms. A secondary staircase rises to the attics which have been converted to provide two further double bedrooms off a central landing.
There is a traditional stone-built threshing barn, granary and cart shed incorporating a boarded upper floor and two stables.
The garden lies to the sides and rear of the house, with an extensive lawn bounded by shrub borders on one side, a further lawn to the rear of the house enclosed by mature hedging leading to a pretty parterre garden. In all the garden extends to about 2.22 acres.


Evershot 2½ miles. Beaminster 7½ miles. Yeovil 9 miles (London Waterloo 2½ hours). Crewkerne 10½ miles. Dorchester 15 miles.
