Full description

A wonderful family home 9 miles from Babington House, Rookery Farm offers well-appointed accommodation and stands in extensive gardens and grounds with paddocks, a substantial modern barn/helicopter hanger, swimming pool and tennis court. EPC rating: E. About 18.37 acres.

Rookery Farm is an appealing 19th century former farmhouse. Extended in the 1980s and again in the last couple of years by the current owners, the house has been considerably improved to create a fantastic family house with spacious reception rooms and plenty of accommodation.

Architectural details have been enhanced or created by a master craftsman and include a handsome stone bay onto the dining room, a Clive Christiansen kitchen and beautiful oak joinery throughout including bookcases, window sills and bathroom cabinets.

The house stands proudly in the centre of its land and is surrounded by gardens planted with a variety of specimen trees. The orangery opens onto a large flagstone terrace which wraps around the southern façade and leads onto a large area of lawn. Formal flagstone walls and edges are planted with clipped box and surround an attractive water feature; this is the centre piece of a garden lighting scheme designed by Bruce Munro.

Adjacent to this formal garden is the swimming pool with an automated solar retractable cover. A hot tub with cedar wood frame is set into the bank and the hard tennis court is nearby. There are also three paddocks.

Set away from the house, a detached modern barn has a large front area of hard standing and automated sliding doors. The building is fully insulated and fitted with a climate controlled heating system. It was designed as a helicopter hangar but suits a wide variety of uses, including stabling, garaging or storage.


Rookery Farm stands in a private rural position to the west of the village of Ashwick. To the north is the village of Gurney Slade with village stores and a post office and to the south lies the larger village of Oakhill which has a church and primary school. The cathedral City of Wells has a wide range of day to day amenities.

The City of Bath with its world-famous Roman Baths is regarded as a cultural hub in the southwest and with Bristol, provides first class shopping, cultural, educational and leisure facilities. Babington House and Spa is also within easy driving distance.
