The property is Grade II Listed of architectural and historical importance, and there are many original period features in evidence, including a heavily beamed main reception room. The property is considered ideal as a second home or UK base, but has unrestricted use, and therefore could equally make an ideal principal residence also. The property currently forms part of Chapel Farm, which is being sold in three separate lots, the main lot is a five bedroom farmhouse with integral one bedroom apartment, currently run as a bed and breakfast business, Smithy Cottage is the secondary lot, and the third lot is a retail premises approached via Cott Lane nearby.
