An elegant Georgian farmhouse near Stratford-upon-Avon which comes with romantic wild gardens and a studio

Lovely interiors and even lovelier gardens make Stamford Hall Farm in the Warwickshire village of Ettington completely irresistible.

White roses and wisteria mingle in a carefree manner around the front door and sash windows of Georgian Stamford Hall Farm, eight miles from Stratford-upon-Avon near the village of Ettington.

The Grade II listed farmhouse stands elegantly in its surroundings, composed of red brick under a pitch slate and clay tile roof, and is currently on the market via Savills with a guide price of £1.75 million.

Set in just over eight acres—much of which, apart from the gardens, is wildflower meadow (and looks very pretty seen through the windows)—the secluded six-bedroom house has all the cornicing, fan lights, exposed timbers and fireplaces one expects from a property of its era.

It is approached by two drives—one, from the west, from the ancient Fosse Way.

A separate garage block is currently an artist’s studio, but could be a home office or separate accommodation.
