The land at Manor Farmhouse which is level, extends to about 1.73 acres and is divided into three separate paddocks including two field shelters for livestock.

Manor Farmhouse is set within a mature plot, much of which faces due south. The attractive patio at the rear of the house has lovely original stone walls on two sides creating a charming and sheltered area to sit and enjoy the far reaching countryside views.
