Living the dream: Can you afford to buy a farmhouse?

Missing those lazy summer days outdoors? Dreaming about a simpler life away from the rat race? We take a look at just how possible it is to pursue that dream.

With Autumn really here and all of us feeling reflective following the summer holiday, we’re wondering whether we can par things back, perhaps embark on a simpler life. In the country. And while we’re dreaming, let’s make it a farmhouse. But can an ordinary budget stretch that far? We take a look.

The good life

Bashfield Farm, Salterforth, Lancashire – £850,000
Bashfield Farm is an impressive Georgian farmhouse with land, which sits on the edge of the small village of Salterforth.
There’s also 18 acres of land so if you’re serious about this farming malarkey this one could be ideal!

Mayfield, East Sussex – £595,000
A gorgeous four-bedroom end of terrace cottage with equestrian facilities and paddocks located within close walking distance of the village.
With a stable block and paddocks included this one should be a big hit with equestrians.

Farmhouse, Rowhedge, Essex – £850,000
A Grade II listed 3 bedroom farmhouse (in need of renovation) plus a range of modern and traditional farm buildings.
Plenty of period features and fittings in this listed property – including a cooking hearth and a woodburner.

Higher Road, Longridge, Preston – £450,000
Traditional small farm or a residential prospect with land set on a quiet road with rural outlook but close to the market towns of Longridge and Clitheroe and the motorway network.

This gorgeous family home was built in 1792!

Jolly Hooves Farm, Latham, York – £650,000
Grassland smallholding with a modern five bedroom detached house and a good range of modern steel portal framed farm buildings.

Suprisingly modern for a farmhouse so a good option if you want the best of both worlds.
