The property is approached from the lane via a five bar gate leading into a large gravelled farmyard area with parking for a large number of vehicles, lorries, horse box etc. Fronting onto the yard is a detached stone Shippon, with a slate roof, internal measurement 15' x 8' with single garage attached. From the yard, a driveway leads down to the land, with a wildlife pond and duck house. There is also a single stable and tack room with power connected and a greenhouse. To the side of house is a raised garden area with shrubs and fruit trees. To the rear of the house is a good sized orchard, with a variety of mature apple and pear trees, together with plum, cherry, damson and quince. The land lies predominantly to the north and west of the property and is stock fenced. To the west of the house and buildings the land slopes down to a level meadow with river frontage and access from the yard. To the north, beyond the orchard is a further long sloping south west pasture field, with further fields enjoying frontage along the River Lew. We understand that the property enjoys fishing rights on the river, which is known to contain trout. This delightful valley setting attracts an abundance of wildlife and flora, and there are some delightful valley views across surrounding countryside, taking the nearby village of Northlew. It is felt that the property would be ideal for those with equestrian interests or anybody looking for a completely peaceful and secluded rural home with the unique benefit of extensive river frontage. There is the added benefit of immediate bridleway access along the no-through road.
