Middle Twinhoe Farm is a traditional 17th century former Somerset farmhouse in a beautiful rural setting. Extended and refurbished in recent years, the property still retains many period features including open fireplaces and stone mullioned windows.

The house itself forms one side of an open, picturesque courtyard with the cottage and stables forming the other two sides. 

Inside are three reception rooms, all with open fireplaces and a great, large kitchen with Aga and breathtaking views across the Midford Valley. A large office is a useful addition to the downstairs accommodation while there are five bedrooms upstairs and three bathrooms.

On the opposite side of the courtyard is a delightful, two-bedroom cottage, and adjoining here is a large, unconverted stable.

Outbuildings include two stables, a tack room and a log store. The gardens are very well established and, in addition to the south-facing terrace is a grass tennis court and a paddock.

The hamlet of Twinhoe lies between the villages of Midford, Combe Hay and Wellow (one miles) which has a village school, church and a pub. Twinhoe is also just over four miles from Bath with its wide range of amenities and Paddington is just over an hour by train. 

The guide price is £2.2m. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 020 7861 1528 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
