Full description

Dating back over 500 years this super farmhouse has become available to let again and it needs a tenant who will appreciate its charm and character. Although in good condition throughout (having recently been redecorated, and with a modern bathroom) it does offer some quirks, particularly the stone staircase and exposed low beams! There are three bedrooms upstairs (one with a four poster bed) and a good sized lounge (with beautiful fireplace) and a kitchen/dining room too. The gardens are lovely, the views are very pleasant and all in all this house will make someone a lovely home. Although unfurnished the landlord has provided a few items which are very much in keeping with the age and style of the property.
