Owned by the same family for 57 years and last worked as a dairy farm in 2015, Hewletts Farm offers an exciting opportunity to acquire a traditional Blackmore Vale Farm set in a very private and peaceful location surrounded by ring fenced land.

The traditional farm buildings offer a huge variety of uses such as holiday lets (subject to the necessary planning consent), storage, stabling and studios.

Historically the owners have gained planning permission for change of use to three full residential units. (planning now lapsed).

Adjoining the annexe is the Old Parlour of stone and brick elevations with concrete floor under a slate roof, including store room, old parlour and a workshop.

Currently used for storage these buildings would be suitable for conversion (subject to the necessary planning consents).

Traditional buildings adjoining a gravel courtyard include the old cow shed, an adjacent bull pen and yard.

There is also a traditional two storey general purpose barn, former parlour opening, the former parlour and old dairy.

The modern farm buildings include two covered yards which can be used for a range of agricultural, equestrian, commercial and storage uses subject to necessary consent.
