Thanks for that, Chris. I drove past it this morning on our way to breakfast at Newton garden centre. Yummy yum yum. It's actually called Bishop's Farm. It's a great timber framed house set back from the road. Real dark and creepy.
As you drive down to Astrey lane, when to get to the first junction, drive straight on down Warton Lane. It's about 1/4 mile along on the left just before the right turn to Newton Regis.
It's well worth a look. Much better than Appleby Moat House, IMHO.
Thanks Chris for that. It's a grand house. Spooky too.
Didn't know about the Moat House. Very difficult to sell because of that entrance where it is and that footpath crossing the land. Also, if my memory serves me, I think that English Heritage may require owners to have public tours of the house every so often ??
Speed down to 5.6 this morning. When they all get back to work tomorrow I might get an increase. :-)

My mother in law was born in Bishops Farm in 1904 and brought up there.It was very original but has been renovated.It was a working farm until the 1960’s .It is a wonderful old house and much loved by the Drake family. Doris Macdougall
