Description: Pool House Farm was originally built in the 17th century and added to in the 1820s.

It has been lovingly cared for, while still being made to work as a registered small holding. It is situated in just over six acres with several outbuildings, barns and workshops, all of which are in excellent order. There is the shell of derelict hop kilns, with the potential for development.
