Property description

Desirable rural investment opportunity.


Manor House Farm Cottages are located in a truly stunning setting surrounded by, and enjoying views over farmland and tucked in opposite the church.

As investment properties, the cottages have undergone some modernisation including double glazing and oil fired central heating. There is further scope to modernise. In addition, given the plot size there is scope to extend or remodel, subject to the relevant consents.

Externally each cottage benefits from gardens to the front and rear. There are various traditional and more modern outbuildings providing storage and off road parking.

Across the lane there is an area of shared gardens/vegetable gardens.

No’s 1, 2 and 3 Cottages are each currently occupied under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy.

No 4 is occupied under a Rent Agriculture Act Tenancy.
