Pass through the black gates and down the meandering driveway, lined with rhododendrons, azaleas and other colourful planting. As you reach the copper beech saplings, the foliage opens up to reveal a courtyard with a number of stone built outbuildings, a barn and plentiful parking areas.
Beyond the stables, an ivy-covered archway leads to the whitewashed Grade II-listed stone-built Low Blakebank Farm.
Four fields surround the house to each side, filled with the bleating of local lambs in the springtime. With its rich equestrian background, these fields would also be ideal for horses.
At Low Blakebank Farm, the main farmhouse is one of many rustic, characterful and intriguing buildings – stables, stores and barns.
The Bank Barn
Grade II listed, ‘The Barn’ is a flexible, self-contained and highly-contemporary living space with private parking.
Currently used as guest accommodation for Low Blakebank Farm, The Barn is located close to the farmhouse, yet utterly private, with its own, shuttered entrance which may be opened to invite the daylight in through the full height glazed inner doors.
