Wakefield Green is a wonderful family home that has been created by the current owners over nearly 40 years. They have taken a small detached cottage with attached barn and created a fantastic extended home with large kitchen, two reception rooms, four bedrooms, three bathrooms and conservatory which has been presented to a high standard. They then created the two bedroom annexe from the stables and hayloft attached to the cottage and now run this as a very successful holiday let. There is also a large American style stable block with six internal stables, tack room and storage areas along with approximately 9.7 acres of land split into four paddocks, grass menage and gardens. This really is a multi-generational property with versatile accommodation set in wonderful countryside with panoramic views onto your own land and surrounding countryside.Wakefield Green
