A unique and individual detached conversion originally part of a substantial country house known as Knowstone Manor which was destroyed by fire in the 1960's and Manor Farm Cottage was created from a building which stood on the south east corner of the original house, improved approximately 20 years ago including a large extension to create a charming and well presented four bedroomed rural home.
