Outside

Osmore Farm is an old farmhouse, and the site includes plenty of farm outbuildings, including stable blocks and two listed barns. A gravel driveway opens out into a substantial parking area and courtyard, from which you can access the outbuildings, while the house itself is surrounded by gardens, with lawns, paved terracing and a number of mature trees and established shrubs. The grounds extend to a number of fields and paddocks, which are ideal for raising livestock or equine activities. Wonderful views can be enjoyed from much of the gardens and the land.
