Substantial North Cotswold house with useful income


Manor Farm is situated in the small village of Aston Somerville, located in the North Cotswolds between Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon. The well-known village of Broadway lies about 4 miles to the east with a number of art galleries, antique and clothes shops as well as a good number of restaurants and pubs including the highly regarded Lygon Arms and Broadway Hotel. Nearby Evesham and further afield Cheltenham and Worcester provide a much greater range of amenities.

There are excellent state schools in the area, with a primary school in Sedgeberrow, middle school at Ashton under Hill, and Prince Henry’s High School in Evesham. Grammar schools are located at Alcester, Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon. Dean Close, Cheltenham Ladies, Cheltenham Collage and The King’s School, Worcester all offer private schooling.


Manor Farm enjoys a stunning North Cotswold position with views to the Cotswold Escarpment and Dumbleton Hill in the south and Bredon Hill to the west. The farm has been in the vendors’ family since 1936. The Manor House and land holding, which has a significant additional income stream, offers the rare opportunity in the area to purchase an exemplary modern residential estate.

Manor Farm is offered for sale as a whole or in lots by private treaty:

Manor House, Barn House, 2 holiday cottages and 2 shepherd’s huts, stables and farm buildings, glamping and camping set within about 32 acres forms Lot 1 of the sale.

The Manor House is a substantial house approached over a gravel drive leading to the ample parking area and main entrance to the house. The front of the house is approached by a flagstone path through the lovely surrounding garden leading to an impressive Cotswold stone portico, giving access to the hall.

The interior comprises a combination of spacious reception rooms and more intimate family rooms and the south facing aspect and larger windows fill the house with light for much of the day. Later extensions have provided the house with a large kitchen and adjoining boot room as well as the ever useful ancillary rooms, such as a pantry, scullery, etc expected of a country house.

To the front of the house is a large conservatory, terraced lawns and beneath the house is a brick floored cellar.

The first floor has seven bedrooms, all south facing with views over the garden, four bathrooms including one en-suite and a laundry room.

On the second floor there are a further 3 double bedrooms, a kitchen and bathroom which could provide accommodation for in-house staff or family members.

The south facing higher garden is of a more formal nature comprising terraced lawns with mature herbaceous borders together with an ornamental pond. The less formal lower garden comprises lawns interspersed with shrubs, an orchard, stream and ponds. The lower garden leads to the adjoining paddock and meadows along the banks of the stream. There is a brick wall along the east side of the higher and lower gardens.

The outdoor heated swimming pool is enclosed by a mature hedge and benefits from a pool house with changing rooms and a bar. Adjacent to the swimming pool and forming part of the higher garden is the lawn tennis court.

Located to the rear of the house is a range of traditional farm buildings that have in part been converted to the Barn House and two holiday cottages.

The remaining buildings include an attractive courtyard of mellow brick, including stables, loose boxes and a tack room, with many original features. Opposite the stables is the former coach house which now comprises a number of garages and the northern side of the courtyard contains a workshop, an office and further storage.

The farmyard, with a separate driveway, includes a Dutch Barn and a three concrete and steel framed farm buildings, one of which houses the wood fired biomass boiler.
