Property of the Day: Manor Farm, Hampshire

A secluded residence set in eight acres of mature gardens

THE PROPERTY: Encompassing a principal residence, a two-bedroom cottage and various outbuildings including an 18th-century timber-framed barn and a Grade II-listed granary, this is a historic farmhouse property with plenty of charm.

THE LOCATION: Situated on the edge of the Hampshire village of Newnham, with its 12th-century church and network of footpaths leading down to the water, the property is also with five miles of Hook and Basingstoke, both of which have a range of shops, leisure opportunities and rail connections.

THE INTERIOR: Dating back to the 17th century, the main house has been extended and refurbished over the years, but preserves its sense of character through period features such as fireplaces, wooden flooring and timber ceiling beams.

WHY WE LOVE IT: With a swimming pool, a tennis court and grounds of more than 130 acres, there’s no shortage of summer activities here.
