Features in the Property!
The farmhouse was probably originally the Manor of Bossington, and has many fascinating historical features, including the open-hall house design of the medieval period. Built around 1456, roughly at the same time as the Chapel of Ease on the same ground, with reclaimation and restoration through every century since, the house shows a great deal of charm and character.
