Hornby Grange Farmhouse

Hornby Grange Farmhouse enjoys a wonderful position, tucked away off the beaten track with only a couple of neighbours and enjoying far-reaching views from both the paddock and the farmhouse.

The flexible and substantial accommodation offers up to four bedrooms and three excellent reception rooms including a large, family-friendly farmhouse kitchen and breakfast area. On the first floor, there is a family bathroom along with three bedrooms, the master opening up to a balcony from which to enjoy the views.

Outside, there are impressive walled gardens to the rear and a large garden to the front. The outbuildings are ideal for storage and there is a well to keep the garden watering costs down. There is a small paddock adjacent to the property with access via a gateway from the main driveway.


The main entrance leads into a useful utility room, where there is space to cast off your muddy boots after family walks. This leads on to the warm and welcoming farmhouse kitchen and breakfast room which has plenty of space and a separate pantry. Double doors from here open up to the large conservatory which is a wonderful room in which to spend time with friends and family, looking out over the walled garden in complete privacy. There are further doors from the kitchen leading into the central hallway, dining room and onwards to the sitting room.

The dual aspect sitting room benefits from a central fireplace and enjoys views over the paddock and farmland beyond. A door from here gives access to the ground floor bedroom and through again into a Jack and Jill style en suite which can also be accessed from the central hallway, perfect for guests convenience.

The first floor landing gives access to three double bedrooms and the family bathroom. Positioned at the far end of the landing, the large, triple aspect master bedroom feels very light and airy and has double doors to the balcony, which looks out over the gardens and views beyond.


The property is perfectly situated with south and westerly views from the paddock and a south-facing, private walled garden in which to while away the hours.

For those with green fingers, there is a greenhouse, potting store and plenty of opportunity for creativity.

To the front of the property, there are large gardens bordering the drive, with further access through some of the outbuildings or the gate into the paddock.


The paddock is adjacent to the house with a wonderful open aspect to the south and west. It measures approximately 0.35 acres and there is access for larger vehicles via a gate off the driveway.
