Manor Farm

Manor Farm is nestled between the Taunton Vale and Quantock hills in rural Somerset, easily accessed from either the M5 or A303.

The Georgian Farmhouse is Grade II listed and it’s extensive barns and outbuildings sit within a listed curtilage. All have been sympathetically restored using traditional materials and methods.

Our photogenic thatched farmhouse has large, high ceilinged rooms with many original 18th century features including flagstones and Inglenook fireplaces on the ground floor, wide elm floorboards upstairs and shutters on lead light windows throughout. Our scullery still has the old bread oven and boiling copper.

The outbuildings include a coach house, cider barn with fully working early 19th century cider press, a Grade II listed hay barn, stables, grain store and old Dutch barn.

 

 

Next to the farmhouse is a small farm pond, which is home to a collection of geese, Indian runner and call ducks. Close by chickens and cockerels roam freely around the farm. Pedigree Ruby Red cattle graze the lush Vale pastures all year round with a flock of Jacob Sheep and two Irish Hunters.

The Farm extends to 75 acres including a two acre swimming and trout lake with a fishing hut, pontoon and rowing boat. There are several orchards, a productive semi walled vegetable, flower and herb garden. Terrier dogs, cats, ferret’s and bees add to the menagerie of this small but productive smallholding.

With past experience in the world of film, photography and styling, we feel that Manor Farm and all it consists of can offer a beautiful, idyllic period farm location.
