Externally there are extensive gardens with patio areas and summer house. In addition there is a detached timber stable with two loose boxes and a large attached barn with power and light with potential for further development.

Situated in the heart of the Forest of Bowland lies Simfield Farm, a beautiful and substantial detached farm house and barn with a commanding position and stunning 360 degree views over rolling countryside towards Waddington Fell. Purchased by the present owners approximately twenty years ago, the farm house, which is very light and airy, has been extensively renovated and is stylishly appointed throughout with many attractive features.

The attached barn offers excellent potential for further development either as additional accommodation for the main house or as a granny annexe (subject to planning permission).

Externally there are large formal garden areas taking advantage of the fabulous views and an additional seven acres of unencumbered farm land available by separate negotiation.
