Bentley Court is Grade II listed and has been dated to the 1790s, although initials on the beam of the main inglenook fireplace suggests occupation from the early 1700s. The house is an intimate family home which has been refurbished to create a contemporary feel whilst maintaining key architectural features.

The house is approached via an attractive half mile sweet chestnut lined driveway which sweeps through the front garden, past the lakes and waterfall and through the woodland before arriving at the grand approach. There is a second tree lined driveway to the north which is not currently used.

There are three double bedrooms on the first floor and four bedrooms on the second floor. There is a guest wing, which could be reinstated as part of the main house, which has a separate kitchen, living room, three bedrooms and a shower room.

The original granary was converted several years ago into two three bedroom cottages which incorporate the original
architectural features of the Grade II listed barn and both benefit from enclosed gardens.

There is an extensive footprint of modern buildings off the main drive, built to industrial standards with electric roller shutter doors as well as a sheep shed and an open fronted building used for cutting and storing wood. The buildings are centred around an extensive area of hardstanding and the southern facing roofs have the solar panels which provide energy to the Estate. One of the detached buildings has been granted planning permission under Class Q regulations to be converted into an impressive house.

The 170 acres of land surrounds Bentley Court. There has been extensive tree planting (14 acres approximately) and areas have
been created for wildlife, birds and insects. The soil has been extensively improved through incorporating straw and manure and the arable land of approximately 110 acres has seen
extensive improved yields. The 35 acres of pasture have had no fertiliser or spray applied in the last 15 years and it is grazed by rare breed sheep. The pasture land abuts an ancient brook and there is a magical old quarry area which encompasses one of the 3 orchards on the farm.

Holt, whilst being rural, is conveniently situated. The A443 leads to Worcester city centre and to the M5 with quick access to Birmingham, M42, M40 and South to Cheltenham, The Cotswolds and Bristol.

Worcester (7.3 miles) (London Paddington from 2 hours).
