The Farm is a period country house which dates back to the 18th century, and has been subsequently extended and now provides over 4,000sq ft of living space. The house is constructed of brick elevations with wooden casement and sash windows beneath a clay tiled roof. There are many good period features remaining including Inglenook fireplaces, sash windows and exposed timber framing.

The accommodation in full comprises: reception hall, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory and cellar downstairs; upstairs are the en-suite master bedroom, three further en-suite bedrooms and a further double bedroom, and a family bathroom.

The house also has an attractive timber-framed period barn constructed of weatherboard elevations which is currently used as a store/workshop and also as garaging. Another outbuilding is used as a gym/games room and also provides changing rooms for the swimming pool. In addition there is also an office.
