The accommodation

A gently sloping stone path leads up the lawn to the front door with its rose-covered porch.  On entering there is a stairway infront with bannisters on either side, leading to the upstairs where there are three bedrooms and a bathroom.  Downstairs to the left is a long lounge with open fire-place, leather sofa, chaise-longue, television and further reading/relaxing area.  To the right of the entance hall is a bright and airy, beamed kitchen-dining room, well equipt with large electric range stove, fridge-freezer, washing machine, microwave & dishwasher.

Both the bathroom and landing have views over the farmyard, a courtyard of old, red-clay-tiled buildings including a listed Threshing Barn.  The yard is particularly busy in spring when the ewes and lambs are let in to feed.   We are delighted to be soon restoring the large barns to their former glory to ensure the continuation of our built working heritage.  This should be an extremely interesting process and we shall endeavour to post progress updates.

Discovering the history of the farm includes the realisation only last year that Chalkdell was quite probably originally a Medieval Barn, the Georgian Front hiding an ancient barn conversion!


Note that there are only upper floor bedrooms and toilet facilities. Undulations and changes in floor levels may make it unsuitable for many with disabilities, although enquiries are welcomed to discuss this.
