The farm is subject to an agricultural and equestrian occupancy condition. It is suitable for those who would like to keep horses, or set up an equine business, or alterntively, buyers who may wish to keep livestock. 

Inside the farmhouse, which would benefit from some modernisation, there is a large sitting room, open plan kitchen and dining room and five bedrooms. 

There is also a double garage, with a recently refurbished first floor that includes a bathroom and fittings for a kitchen and office.
