A gloriously presented Cotswolds stone farm house with a heritage steam train running through its fields

Injecting a bit of luxury into the traditional farmhouse stereotype, Far Stanley Farm is bright, immaculately finished, with stable, tennis courts and views over the surrounding Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For moments when your eye is off the ball, rolling views towards Dixton and Bredon Hills can be enjoyed from the tennis court at Far Stanley Farm, a charming five-bedroom property with paddocks, gardens, a four-box stable yard and triple garage on land extending to 16 acres.

The property is currently on the market via Knight Frank at a guide price of £2.5 million. 

Remodelled and extended, this Cotswold-stone farmhouse blends old and new seamlessly, with an Aga and overhead beams rubbing shoulders with three en suites, French doors and plenty of natural light.
