This Grade II listed farmhouse near Tarporley will set you back £1.25m.

The Moat House on Horsley Lane, Beeston, has a picturesque setting, four bedrooms and a workshop.

Opening the front door leads to a reception hall with doors to a sitting room, drawing room, dining room and kitchen, complete with Rayburn and separate cooker.

The charming former farmhouse certainly looks the part with its timber beams and inglenook fireplace.

Upstairs are four bedrooms, including the master with en-suite, and a family bathroom.

Sitting four miles from Tarporley, the Moat House can almost class Beeston and Peckforton Castles as neighbours.

As the home is Grade II listed, it is designated as being of architectural and historic interest.

The grounds have great views out into the Cheshire countryside and the gardens and pond have been well maintained.

To the rear of the property is a garage which holds the workshop and store.
