Flexham Farm is conveniently located on the outskirts of the Somerset village of Rode, which enjoys an active community and a variety of local amenities including a choice of public houses, post office and store, well-regarded primary school, village hall and church. Rode also benefits from regular bus services to Bath, Frome, Bradford on Avon and Trowbridge. The nearby village of Beckington has a primary school, a private prep school and the well regarded Mes Amis deli/café, together with a 24 hour petrol station and shop.

The property is also conveniently accessible to the A36 providing easy driving into Bath, which lies within approximately 11 miles and provides a full range of amenities to include an excellent selection of restaurants and cultural attractions including the Theatre Royal. In addition, there are high speed rail links to London Paddington from both Westbury Station and Bath Spa Station. Bradford on Avon Station (approx. 8 minutes) connects direct to London Waterloo.


Flexham Farm is a beautifully presented Grade II listed former farmhouse. The current owners have spent a great deal of time and expense meticulously refurbishing and rebuilding parts of the property to create a wonderful family home. Special care has been taken in enhancing and improving the existing period features, while balancing this with modern day country living.

The property is entered into a wonderful country kitchen with reclaimed tiled floor. There is an extensive range of worktops, pantry area and dual control AGA. The light and airy dining room is adjacent and both rooms benefit from underfloor heating.

The main house has two receptions rooms at the front of the property, a playroom and a useful study area. On the first floor are two excellent sized double bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a spacious attic bedroom running the full width of the property.

The superb barn conversion, now linked via the kitchen, provides the ability, if needed, to annexe off for guest accommodation, a dependant relative, or children. There is a sitting room with galleried mezzanine double bedroom, a further study area and second double bedroom with en suite shower room above. In addition, there is a utility room with adjacent downstairs shower room. Due to its clever design, the barn seamlessly marries into the main house and therefore larger families such as our clients would find integration into the main house easy.


A driveway leads in from the road via double electric gates to a gravel parking area to the side of the house. The driveway continues to the back of the property where there is parking for numerous vehicles and horse boxes.

There are a variety of traditional outbuildings which, subject to the necessary consents being obtained, could also be converted.

The main formal gardens sit to the side of the house with a large patio area, ideal for al fresco dining, leading onto a vegetable garden with raised beds, a Bath stone fountain and a level lawned area. There are a variety of apple and plum trees providing a healthy crop.

The paddock, which extends to about 4.5 acres, lies to the south-east of the property and has direct access from the gravel parking area. The land is level in aspect and is enclosed by a combination of mature hedges and fencing and would suit a wide variety of uses and requirements including horses.
