Farm house

A gloriously presented Cotswold stone farmhouse with a heritage steam train running through its fields

Injecting a bit of luxury into the traditional farmhouse stereotype, Far Stanley Farmhouse is bright, immaculately finished, with stable tennis courts and views of the surrounding Cotswolds of outstanding natural beauty.

For those times when your eye is off, you can enjoy breathtaking views of Dixton and Bredon Hills from the tennis court at Far Stanley Farm, a charming five bedroom property with paddocks, gardens, a four-box stable yard and a triple garage on land spanning 16 acres.

The property is currently on the market via Knight Frank at an indicative price of £ 2.5million.

Renovated and extended, this Cotswold stone farmhouse perfectly blends old and new, with an Aga and beamed ceiling alongside three en-suite bathrooms, patio doors and plenty of natural light.

Occasionally, the distant whistles and whistles of the heritage steam railway that connects Cheltenham and Broadway can be heard, as a train passes in sight deep in the fields.
