The Property
1 Castle Farm Cottages comprises a semi-detached house, which is understood to have been
constructed in the early 20th century with brick external elevations, under a tiled roof. Over the years the cottage has been extended to the side and rear, offering three bedrooms and three reception rooms.

The entrance hall leads into the property where you will find the first of the reception rooms. The sitting room is a good sized room with a feature fireplace with inset wood-burner and an under stairs cupboard. The room then flows through into the dining room. Adjacent is the lovely and light dual aspect living room, which is ideal for entertaining being a larger space than the cosy sitting room/snug.

At the back of the property is the kitchen/breakfast room which is well fitted with wall and base units, black ceramic double sink, dishwasher, a further range of storage cupboards and breakfast bar. Patio doors lead out into the garden and to a small gravelled area. The bathroom has been re-fitted in recent times and comprises shower, pedestal wash basin and WC. The room also houses a good sized airing cupboard. On the first floor are three well sized rooms and a refitted cloakroom.

Sitting in a plot of approx. 0.4 of an acre and surrounded by fields, the property enjoys a lovely, secluded position with ample driveway parking. The garden has lawn sections with well established flower and shrub beds as well as many fruit trees. A pretty pond nestles in the centre of the rear gardens, allowing wildlife to flourish in this wonderful natural garden. Throughout the garden are a number of seating areas, space for a polly tunnel, space for greenhouse and an double garage/workshop. In addition there are two outside stores. The front garden is mainly laid to drive for ample off road parking.

Outside Continued...
The garden has been designed and built by the present owners to give privacy and to bring in as much wildlife as possible. To the rear of the house there is a large wildlife pond at one end of which is a bog garden, with dry garden planting to the remaining sides including a bed of bearded iris, lavender, scabious, persicaria and catmints. A hexagonal brick patio under a pergola planted with cordon apple trees, a crab apple, clematis and roses planted to give privacy to patio. There are David Austin Roses throughout the garden. Brick paths have been laid though out the garden to give dry foot access and to tie the garden together. Birds can often been seen bathing in the pond or hiding in the pergola and are known to nest in the hedges that surround the garden. A number of raised beds have been provided for growing vegetables. There is an area devoted to soft fruits, which include black currants, red currents, gooseberries, raspberries and strawberries. To the side of the house is a greenhouse with a gravelled area providing clean foot access to it from the kitchen. A herb garden planted with purple sage, oreganos, thymes, sweet cicely, parsley and mint is also within easy reach of the kitchen. There are a wide range of fruit trees including apples (Egremont Russet, Discovery, crab apple, James Grieve and Brambly), apricot, plum, damson and pear. A large poly tunnel is sited at the end of the garden which provides a supply of chilli's, peppers, cucumbers Tomatoes, salad and vegetables through the year. There are a number of specimen trees and shrubs to be found throughout the garden including: Weigelas, Forsythia, Purple elder "Black Lace", Philadelphus, Magnolia Stellata, Hibiscus, Cotinus "Grace", Birch bark cherry, weeping silver birch "Longii", Sorbus Accuparia's 'Sheerwater Seedling'. Hydranger "limelight" and a snowball viburnum within the Grass Garden gives beautiful Spring, Autumn and Winter interest.

There are spring and summer bulbs, Lilies, tree lilies, Gladioli, snowdrops, crocus, daffodils, tulips and various types of dwarf dutch and beared Irises.
