WINNER of the William Stansell Somerset Historic Building Award 2018, presented by Somerset Preservation Trust.
Manor Farm is a delightful Listed 18th Century 'model' farm on the site of and incorporating remnants of a former Manor. The buildings and grounds are currently undergoing major refurbishment and alterations in close liaison with the conservation officer. Sensitive stonework repair has been undertaken by specialist masons. All the roofs have been stripped, repaired and retiled; the lean-to loggia and dovecot have been extensively repaired and re-roofed with stone slates, the original material. Replacement and additional bespoke metal framed leaded light casements have been installed in Daulting stone or Oak surrounds . All the services have been completely renewed throughout the house, new bathrooms and kitchen have been sensitively incorporated.
The layout of the grounds are being transformed to re-establish a sense of order and reconnect the disparate outside spaces and converted outbuildings. The extensive range of outbuildings include a Dovecot, stables, toolshed, cart barn, garden building have been repaired; a new carport, store and stabling have been added.
