Entering from the porch, a spacious hall welcomes and gives entrance on the right to the breakfast kitchen with fitted units and an island, providing views across the yard and grassland. The hall also leads to a conservatory, although in need of some modernisation, and a pleasant lounge with traditional fireplace.

A bedroom is accessed from the midpoint of the staircase, whilst 3 further bedrooms can be found at first floor level, the master bedroom having en suite facilities and a family bathroom.
Overall, the farmhouse provides spacious family accommodation, boasting character throughout.
