Welcome to Rectory Farm, an enchanting 4-bedroom country property that seamlessly blends historic charm with modern comfort. Nestled within 10 acres, it boasts a partially moated farmhouse, an additional detached cottage. Rectory Farm holds a rich history as it is a Grade II listed treasure with Tudor roots complemented by Victorian additions. In this charming residence, every corner tells a tale of timeless elegance, accentuated by beautiful period features, from exposed beams and brickwork to an original inglenook fireplace—all contributing to the distinctive character of this countryside haven.

Step inside to find a bright and spacious reception room/dining area to your right, adorned with a cosy fireplace and log-burning stove, the perfect space for entertaining. To your left, there is a generously sized open-plan kitchen/breakfast room boasting a kitchen island unit, which offers additional worktop, storage and seating space as an added bonus. The focal point of the kitchen, however, is undoubtedly the classic Aga range cooker, not only allowing you to cook multiple dishes simultaneously but also providing extra heat – any practical culinary enthusiast’s dream. Completing the ground floor is a handy utility room and shower room.

Ascending to the first floor, you’ll discover a family bathroom with a separate bath and shower and four ample bedrooms, all enjoying beautiful views of the surrounding gardens. As an additional perk, the master bedroom boasts an en-suite bathroom.

The Exterior Charm

Externally, the residence is approached through a private driveway, leading to ample off-street parking for multiple vehicle. Encircling the property are expansive fields, perfect for utilising as paddocks or for crop cultivation. At the rear of the property is a cosy private seating area that provides views of the moat and beautiful gardens. It’s the ideal spot for designing your personal outdoor haven where you can organise barbecues and entertain friends and family in the midst of wonderful vistas.

Cottage & Multi-generational Potential

But that’s not all! This property truly is the gift that keeps on giving. To the front of the main residence is a lovely cottage, containing one generous bedroom, an open-plan kitchen/reception room, and a bathroom. Those who are looking to tap into an established income stream will be pleased to find out that it currently generates revenue as a holiday rental. In addition to that, it offers the potential for additional family living quarters or a work-from-home office. 

A Haven for Equestrian Enthusiasts

For those passionate about horses, this property presents a fantastic opportunity to establish your own equestrian paradise. With 15 acres at your fingertips, there is an abundance of space for you to use for paddocks for your horses to enjoy unrestricted freedom, and you can consider adding field shelters and stabling (subject to planning permission).

Those who compete or enjoy attending equestrian events will appreciate the home’s proximity to a number of excellent competition venues and centres, which are all within a convenient 30-minute radius:

Topthorn Arena (13.0 miles via A140) is an affiliated British Dressage venue with regular unaffiliated showjumping and dressage shows, as well as a full programme of popular clinics and arena hire days.
