Fairytales, Turrets and a little Magic at Bradstone Manor Farm

The approach to Bradstone Manor Farm is wonderful. As the minor council road swings right past Bradstone Church the magnificient Gatehouse is right in front of you. Just before the Gatehouse a pair of late 17th century dressed stone Gatepiers with ball finials mark the entrance to the gravelled drive leading to a parking and turning area beside the Manor.  A special feature is the Grade I Listed late C16 Gatehouse which ensures complete privacy and protection to the Manor. Built of the same Hurdwick stone as the Manor itself its gabled ends and pinnacle turrets lend it fairytale qualities. Central flagstone gateway through with a wrought iron and timber gate at the entrance set under granite arch with heavy rollmould. An ancient carved door opens to a winding staircase that climbs to an enchanting room with deep turret recess, mullion windows and leaded lights, granite fireplace.

The land extends to approximately 469.18 acres and surrounds the Manor and the farmstead providing privacy and protection. The soils comprise highly productive well drained fine loamy and fine silty soils. The fields are of good workable size and the majority of the land is farmed in hand and is part of an arable rotation. The land which lies on the eastern side of the farm includes the water meadows which offer excellent grazing. The land is interspersed with pockets of broadleaved woodland teeming with bluebells and orchids in the spring and summer months. The topography and established woodland provides significant potential to create a good shoot. The current owners have constructed a cross country course at the farm and have carried out an extensive programme of fencing including restoring many of the traditional field boundaries.  Set a good distance from the Manor this pair of semi-detached cottages with identical layout are perfect for staff, relatives or to let to provide additional income.
