Property of the week – Rookery Farm, Somerset

This is a perfectly English farm house, ideal for anyone who has ever daydreamed of escaping the rat race and moving to the countryside to grow vegetables, go for long walks and drink local cider in the pub. Consisting of a farm house and a cider barn, as well as beautiful grounds, Rookery Farm is utterly dreamy.

The house itself has origins in the sixteenth century and still maintains much of its period charm – although it has been fully modernised throughout. Particular highlights include the double-height hall, the open fireplace in the drawing room and the AGA-stocked kitchen. But it’s the grounds – all 35 acres of them – that really make this stand out.

There’s an astroturf tennis court and a small apple orchard (so you can be making your own cider in no time!) as well as paddocks. And that’s all in addition to beautiful gardens full of flowers and atmosphere.

Rookery Farm is for sale with Knight Frank for £2.75 million. For more information, to enquire about this property, or to see many more, visit
