£945,000: Rowle­stone on the Welsh bor­ders near Here­ford pro­vides the most ro­man­tic of rus­tic lo­ca­tions for this his­toric col­lec­tion of build­ings, in­clud­ing a 16th-cen­tury farm­house and a fab­u­lous stu­dio barn with an open-plan liv­ing/kitchen and din­ing space.

Other out­build­ings in­clude sta­bles that come with five pad­docks, all de­signed to run a lively eques­trian busi­ness.

The farm­house has a gen­er­ous liv­ing room with a flag­stone floor, an in­glenook fire­place with a wood-burn­ing stove, slate tiles and a Ray­burn oven in the kitchen/break­fast room, while up­stairs has three/four bed­rooms that soak up the glo­ri­ous views across some 20-plus acres of land to ram­ble or can­ter across.
