Glebe Farm is a ragstone and brick, Grade II listed farmhouse. The house has been extended by the current owners which includes an unusual roundel sitting room.
Set a little way from the main house is a cottage of stone and brick construction which comprises a kitchen/sitting room with exposed timbers, brick fireplace with inset wood burning stove, bedroom and shower room.
The property is set in a delightful valley in undulating countryside on the edge of the village, which has public houses, a church and day-to-day shopping.
A pathway leads through a riverside garden with huge gunneras, bamboo and water-loving plants. A bridge crosses the river to a wide expanse of lawn at a higher level where an octagonal gazebo looks back over the river and the house. To the front of the house is a further lawn with varieties of specimen trees. The river flows in front of the house and is lined with ragstone sides. There are various bridges crossing the river and lovely York stone patio areas. On the opposite side of the rear drive is a small paddock
