The AreaBampton

The ancient market town of Bampton lies just south of the Cotswolds. Until about 1850, it stood in the centre of a large area of common land, hence its previous name of ‘Bampton in the Bush’ and was known as a market town until the 19th Century, before being designated a village.

The neighbouring village of Clanfield is home to The Double Red Duke, a picturesque, 16th-century hotel and pub with cosy log fires.

The larger, and more widely known Burford is only 8 miles north of Manor Farm. The famous High Street sweeps downhill towards the River Windrush, its medieval bridge and its impressive church. Both sides of the street are flanked by an unbroken line of historic houses and shops.

With little having changed over the centuries, Burford is popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping and wide variety of places to eat, with a number of restaurants, pubs and teashops.

Burford is equidistant between the popular towns of Cheltenham and Oxford, both offering extensive shopping, dining options, pubs and facilities.

There are a number of schools in the area, most notably; St Hugh’s and Pinewood. Road communications are fantastic to the A40 which in turn provides access the M40 to London, and the M5 to the west.

Manor Farm, LewAbout this home

Approached via a sweeping gravel drive around the lake and sitting elegantly overlooking its grounds of 20.11 acres, lies Manor Farm; a substantial property totalling over 16,000 sq. ft. of accommodation and outbuildings. Forming part of the Bishop of Winchester’s estate in the 11th Century and Tudor in its origin, Manor Farm is a simply stunning example of a country house with Regency and modern Elizabethan editions and more recently, meticulously renovated throughout by the current owners, working alongside renowned Pippa Paton design, to create a perfect marriage between old and new. Unlisted, and with an enviable rural location on the outskirts of Bampton, this is arguably one of the best houses to come to the market in some time.

The house is awash throughout with stunning period features including panelled walls, leaded stone mullioned windows and beautiful flag stone flooring. Highlights include the bespoke kitchen, complete with large, glazed elevations in which to admire the landscaped gardens, as well as numerous impressive reception rooms and simply magnificent staircase. The main house is of ideal size for a family, with 7 bedrooms in the main house. There is a 3-bedroom cottage within the grounds, together with a converted barn to create a 2 bedroom annexe, and a one bedroom studio apartment above the pool house, overlooking the walled garden and swimming pool. Numerous outbuildings also include a gym, stabling with 8 loose boxes and 2 barns.
