Location

Manor Farm is situated in a quiet location on the western edge of the village of Broadwell, adjacent to St Paul's Church and The Manor House. Broadwell is a charming Cotswold village dominated by a wide village green, surrounded by attractive mainly period properties and The Fox Inn. Beside the green runs a stream with a Ford, a tributary of the River Evenlode. There is also a large and active village hall.

Stow-on-the-Wold is approximately 1 miles and has a varied and wide selection of shops, business and educational facilities. The Farmhouse is also conveniently placed for Moreton-in-Marsh (4 miles) and Kingham (5 miles) which have a main line train station with a regular service to London Paddington via Oxford and Reading.

The Farmhouse

is a substantial property constructed of natural Cotswold stone dating principally from the 19th Century, with 12th Century origins. This is possibly the first time that the property has come onto the open market and has been owned by the same family since the 17th Century. Over the last 30 years the present owner has converted the Cotswold stone outbuildings into two letting cottages, a party barn and home office.

The gardens and grounds are now well matured with a wide variety of trees, shrubs and plants. The land has been combined with that of the neighbours and a successful pheasant and partridge shoot provides 8 to 12, 100 to 200 bird days. In addition to the traditional Cotswold buildings there is a modern covered yard of 5,000sqft, ideal for stabling, and two Dutch barns across the lane.
