Framed by pretty gardens and set within six acres of land, Hogbrook Farm is a real hidden gem with plenty of character in the Warwickshire countryside.
Hogbrook Farm has the kind of garden you want to spend time in: neither daunting nor overly designed, it’s simply a beautiful place full of climbing roses, mature trees and tranquil areas, where you can sit with a book in hand and soak up the scents and the atmosphere.
The house — currently on the market via Mr & Mrs Clarke for offers over £1.1 million — has much the same feel, with a profusion of details whose only purpose seems to delight.
The kitchen has a vaulted ceiling and an Aga, the snug has a woodburning stove under a massive beam and some of the six bedrooms have fireplaces or exposed timbers.
