LYDEARD Farm, Listed Grade II, provides a very rare opportunity to buy a substantial period farmhouse in an outstanding rural setting with ancillary accommodation, good equestrian facilities and a secluded bush camp with five wooden lodges in its own private valley, in all about 70 acres.

Believed to date back to the early 16th Century, 1509 has been suggested, this fine and particularly handsome medieval farmhouse retains many character features expected of a house of its age.

Lydeard Farm has been well restored over the years by the present owners, the house offers spacious, yet comfortable rooms with particularly good reception space.

A cross passage hall with flagstones and beams lead to the drawing room, a particularly well-proportioned room with cut stone fireplace with open hearth and recessed shelves on either side, ceiling beams and windows to both the front and rear of the house.

There is six bedrooms and three bathrooms to the first floor of the property and outside, well there is a lot of space. And a barn, bush camp with lodges and office space.

A particularly spacious barn conversion that provides self-contained accommodation and has just recently been completely re-modelled and designed and provides a spacious vaulted sitting room with a recessed well-fitted modern kitchen, a hall with good cupboards and entrance in from the passing lane, three bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom.

A further drive gives access to the Bush Camp, in its own secluded valley, which is currently run as a commercial enterprise.
