The Brambles is a spacious 4-bed barn conversion which has been finished to the highest of standards. The property forms part of an exclusive development, being the second unit complete out of four dwellings, all of which have their own individual characters. Attention to detail and quality of finish has been at the forefront of this development. The Brambles is an impressive family home, exuding space and light throughout.

A fire in 2011 left the once popular public house, the ‘Hare and Hounds’, in disrepair until the plans were submitted to create this exclusive development of impressive barn conversions. The former 18th century public house was part of the greater Cruckton estate, the venue for a number of local and national ploughing matches over the years. The vendors have undertaken a comprehensive programme of building works over the past couple of years to create what you see today.

A unique feature of the kitchen is the bespoke oak framed wine cabinet which has been crafted under the stairs with a glass frontage and door for access.
