The Property - Hendrifton Farm is a delightful small holiday cottage complex that was purchased by the Vendors around five years ago and has subsequently been the subject of a comprehensive and sympathetic refurbishment programme. Offering to the market a stylish and extremely comfortable main home, this versatile property includes three converted cottages, each with full residential consent, together with a Certified Caravan and Camping Club Location.

The Main Farmhouse - Boasting an attractive partially slate hung facade, Hendrifton Farmhouse is an enchanting Grade II Listed character residence that has been comprehensively renovated to create a stunning family home. Benefitting from a ground floor wing, the property lends itself well to either a spacious single residence or perhaps having a bed and breakfast room or indeed even informal annexe accommodation for dependant relatives or similar.
 
The property is approached from the south-facing front garden to the charming Sitting Room, complete with open beamed ceiling and superb granite fireplace inset with a wood burning stove. Also facing out over the front lawn is the beautifully proportioned formal Dining Room, again full of character with slate flag floor and large original fireplace with clome oven and oil fired stove. To the rear of the dining room is the well-appointed Kitchen featuring a range of light timber fronted floor and wall mounted cupboards and drawers surmounted with a Corian work surface. There are a range of integrated appliances including a filtered boiling water tap. From here, there is access to the rear Lobby with a door to the garden. The ground floor is completed with a Cloakroom, Family Room, Study and the aforementioned wing which includes a magnificent En-Suite Bedroom stylishly decorated and appointed throughout. To the first floor are found a further 3 Bedrooms, 2 of which benefit from En-Suite facilities together with a separate WC.

The Cottages - Converted from a range of traditional barns, the three cottages are well presented throughout having been significantly improved by the vendors to offer comfortable and well-appointed guest accommodation. Each has full residential planning consent thereby presenting significant versatility as to how they are occupied and used. They all have attractive exposed stone elevations together with dedicated sun terraces or garden areas.

April Cottage: - April Cottage is approached to a spacious open-plan Living Area with slate tiled floor, open beamed ceiling, wood burning stove and a range of Shaker style kitchen units. To the front is a double glazed Conservatory with the accommodation being completed on the first floor with 2 Bedrooms and a Shower Room.

Granary Cottage: - Granary Cottage is the central cottage and as the name suggests was converted from a former Granary Barn. Again the property retains a wealth of traditional details and is approached directly into the Sitting Room with wood-burning stove, oak
floor and exposed ceiling timbers. The Kitchen/Breakfast Room features a range of Shaker style units and from here the stairs rise to the first floor accommodation, the Master Bedroom having a high vaulted ceiling and En-Suite Bathroom. A further Bedroom is approached directly from the Master Bedroom.

Field View Cottage: - The end cottage of three, Field View Cottage is also part of the former Granary Barn and is approached to the Kitchen which is again appointed with a Shaker style range of units and enjoys countryside views to the side. The cosy Sitting Room also has views over the garden and immediate countryside whilst to the rear of this is the Bathroom complete with free-standing rolled
top bath. To the first floor is the twin Bedroom with high vaulted ceiling.

The Grounds - Hendrifton Farm is approached over a sweeping granite chipped driveway that sub-divides to give separate access to the Caravan Club Certified Location and the main farmstead. Culminating at a delightful courtyard there is ample parking for the cottages and main farmhouse.
 
To the front of the three cottages there are sun terraces and facing them over a walled lawned garden with Magnolia Tree is the farmhouse. To the rear of the cottages is a substantial Barn 44ft x 42ft which offers extremely useful storage and benefits from an independent right of way over adjoining land to give vehicular access, and to which power and water are connected. Close to this is the granite chipped sun terrace for Granary Cottage whilst Field View Cottage benefits from its own private lawned garden. Beyond this is a small dog exercising paddock with countryside views.
 
From the walled front garden of the house a gateway leads through to a further area of the grounds past two greenhouses to a lawned garden at the side of the farmhouse with a summerhouse (available by separate negotiation). From here a gate leads into the main garden of the farmhouse which is principally lawned with a range of mature flower and shrub borders enjoying views over the adjacent meadow. There is a polytunnel and summerhouse (available by separate negotiation).
 
The Caravan Club Certified Location includes 5 electrical hook-ups and benefits from a facilities building including ladies and gents WCs and a central shower. There is also a chemical disposal point and access to an adjacent meadow with mown walkways meandering throughout. Beyond here is a bank of solar panels.

The Business - Operated by a husband and wife team, Hendrifton Farm is a dog friendly destination that has steadily built upon its reputation and enjoys excellent levels of occupation and repeat business. Principally promoted through their own website, www.hendrifton.co.uk, the Vendors choose to only operate with 2 of the cottages thereby offering further scope to extend the business.
