The River Witham flows through the £2 million property’s extensive grounds

A Lincolnshire manor built in the 1620s with the River Witham flowing through its grounds is up for sale at £2 million.

Hougham Manor, a Grade II* listed property, comes with 30 acres of parkland including a tennis court, horse walker and plenty of pristine grass.

The landscaped gardens also feature a pagoda, a fishing hut and outbuildings including a garage block, workshops, and stables.

A moat used to surround the property, but now survives on just three sides to the south, west, and east with some parts now infilled.

The dining room can comfortably seat ten people with an impressive 13th century stone pillar known as the ‘triple responds’, believed to be the remains of a keep tower.

It also comes with its own indoor swimming pool complex which can be opened up in the summer to the garden with the French windows.

The kitchen comes with a range of custom-built units, an electric four oven Aga, dishwasher and a large fridge freezer.
