The lie of the land


Laurel Farm offers a rural ideal that no one could resist, writes Sammy Milton

If you’re looking for a rural escape to the country, then look no further than this outstanding stone-built farmhouse, situated to the east of the highly sought-after market town of Thornbury.

Laurel Farm sits in a delightful plot of circa 3.9 acres of fields and gardens, and along with the farmhouse itself, it also features stables and a range of outbuildings – a pleasant country scene if you’ve ever seen one! The house itself is spread out over three levels and benefits from a whopping amount of space inside. 

The ground floor incorporates three reception rooms, all boasting plenty of natural light and characterful touches throughout. The lounge is traditional and spacious, with wonderful features such as oak beams and a wood-burning stove. As well as this, there’s stripped wooden flooring, a beautifully tiled hallway and an inglenook fireplace to admire! 

The kitchen/dining room is a fantastic space. Bright and airy, there’s an ‘Aga’ and plenty of storage in the form of fitted wooden wall and base cabinets. This room in turn leads through to a wonderful conservatory – perfect for morning meals or cosy dinners. 

The third reception room is a great family room that incorporates more of those wonderful period features and has scope to be used as further bedroom due to the access of a handy en-suite wet room. As well as this, there’s a utility room, cloakroom and pantry – reams of space for whatever your heart desires! Towards the rear of this floor is a handy workshop that is ripe for conversion – it could perhaps be an annexe for storage or even another bedroom! 

The first floor incorporates four wonderful bedrooms, featuring some pretty special countryside views. A family bathroom completes this floor, and if you go up to the third and final level, you’ll find two fabulous attic rooms. 

Featuring large windows and vaulted beamed ceilings, these would work ideally as a guest suite or a home office, if you prefer (subject to any necessary consents). 

The outside space is fantastic. Ideal for those with equestrian dreams, there are two stone stables, a yard and various outbuildings to play with.

If you’ve ever wanted to own your own ‘farm’ or live ‘The Good Life’ now is the time to act. And an extra perk is the sheer amount of parking space too – you could invite the whole village round! 

Laurel Farm is in a perfect location. The thriving town of Thornbury is just a short drive away, featuring plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops for you to visit, as well as supermarkets! 

You’re close to the M4/M5 interchange too, meaning getting to Bristol and Bath is a cinch, and Bristol Parkway Station is set just to the south, making commuting a breeze. If a home in the country has been your dream for some time, then act now and book your viewing – this rural gem won’t hang around long!
