A hugely prominent and highly attractive granite stone former farmhouse located off Main Street in Newtown Linford. This Grade II listed home has a graded Swithland slate roof and is believed to date back to the 1600s being one of the oldest properties in the village having had a varied history which included life as the village inn, known as The Bucks Head or the Horns Tavern as well as a working farm changing hands and tenancies a number of times before being renovated in 1949 and remodelled as a family home.
