Buttles Farm is an attractive detached period farmhouse, which has been skilfully and sympathetically renovated and extended to create a beautifully presented and versatile family home, with a delightful blend of traditional features and modern amenities.

These buildings have been improved with new roof and steel structures and we understand that there is consent for holiday lets or ancillary accommodation to the main house. Within these buildings is a shower block for the campsite with two toilets and two showers and hot water tank. On the other side of the lane is a strip of garden, which has been utilised as a vegetable area. The majority of the garden lies to the rear of the property and enjoys a generous slate terrace for outside dining/seating and there is a raised lawned area with an adjoining well stocked orchard. There is a further range of buildings, with a former cider barn currently used as a workshop, Nissan hut, timber poultry building and modern farm building with leanto. The land is approached over a separate access leading to a generous car parking area and giving access to paddocks which have been divided into two main fields with level pasture. The vendors currently run a small campsite registered with Freedom Camping, which allows 15 tents and 5 caravans.

The popular village of Hemyock provides a range of day to day facilities, whilst at Churchinford there is a doctor's surgery, community shop and public house. There is delightful surrounding countryside, with a wooded hillside and open fields providing excellent opportunities for walking, riding and other rural pursuits.
