A FARM nestled at the end of a long track is a 'charming' blend of the old and new. 

Roughmoor Farm, on the Devon/Dorset border, is tucked away under Lambert's Castle Hill, and is on the market with Symonds & Sampson.

The farm's original Victorian cottage was built when the annual June fair at Lambert's Castle was in its heyday. This popular event ran for more than 300 years. 

The property itself has been recently extended in collaboration with architect David Highet. 

A spokesperson for Symonds & Sampson said: "David has successfully blended the old and the new to create a spacious and light-filled six-bedroom home.

"The beautiful mature gardens bounded by a pretty stream, include an orchard, kitchen garden and two wildlife ponds. 

"For horse lovers, this flexible property has a useful barn and former stables, with outriding directly from the property.  Needless to say, the race track at Lambert’s Castle is no longer in use, although there are many bridleways close by, perfect for a leisurely hack to enjoy the stunning views over the vale to the sea.

"This rural retreat is protected by a block of gently sloping pastureland with traditional hedgerows and mature trees.  In season a profusion of wildflowers including wild daffodils, bluebells and native orchids abound."

There is a focus on sustainability and eco-credentials at the farm, and so it has a ground source heat pump, Photovoltaic and solar thermal roof panels, a 10Kw battery storage system and an EV charging point.

Roughmoor Farm is situated near Lyme Regis and Bridport. In total, the grounds amount to 13.89 acres (5.62ha). 

The farm is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of £1,150,000.
