An organic dairy farm comprising a historic farmhouse complete with a unique history and some 31.55 acres (12.75 hectares) is for sale in Kentisbury near Barnstaple.

Barton Farmhouse is Grade II listed and is mentioned in the Doomsday book as the Manor House in Kentisbury, which then became the Barton at a later date.

It is thought to date back to 15th century and has played host to Saxon Lords, a Rector and first world war veterans as a farm school. This substantial property is currently divided into three; the main farmhouse, the annexe and a self contained flat, all of which need varying degrees of updating and modernising.

The farm is currently run as an organic dairy unit, but it could be adapted for a variety of enterprises, such as stock rearing, an equine enterprise or developing the numerous stone and slate, subject to gaining the necessary consents.

There is a range of traditional stone and slate barns of which some have potential, subject to planning.

There is also a range of modern dairy buildings including a 9:18 herringbone parlour and cubicles for 120 cows.

Approximately 31.55 acres of mainly pasture land with some valley woodland is for sale and further land is available.

The farm is on the market for £950,000 with
