First impressions are superb, with a magnificent approach thanks to its position beside the small parish church of St Michael and All Angels. The Manor House has three separate gated entrances and driveways leading to the house, which has ample space for parking and turning.

The entrance to the cottage sits within the inner courtyard. It consists of a sitting room with log burning stove, a kitchen and a study / bedroom on the ground floor. On the first floor is the principal bedroom and bathroom.

The gardens at The Manor House are mature and established, which complement the house perfectly.

There are various flower beds in front of the house and a walled swimming pool area with a heated pool sits at one end of the large lawn. There is an enclosed vegetable garden, an orchard and a hard tennis court to the rear. The majority of the grounds are wooded, including some recent planting. The woodland slopes away from the house into a valley, giving the property great protection.

The grounds extend to about 16.8 acres

Rowberrow is a hamlet about 1 mile south of the village of Churchill and about 14 miles south west of the City of Bristol. It is situated towards the western end of the Mendip Hills and there is excellent riding with access directly from the property through woodland to Dolebury Warren and the open moorland of Black Down, just 4 miles away. The centre of the hamlet is about 500 metres away where there is a well-regarded pub called The Swan Inn.
