Lower Bache House has 17th Century origins. In the same ownership for over 30 years, the house has been run as a bed and breakfast business, and at the same time increasingly managed with conservation and traditional farming practices in mind. There are, for example, 19 butterfly species identified on the property. Approached down a pretty country lane. The drive entrance sweeps directly to the house.

The traditional barn and workshop backs on to the annexe, and along with its associated buildings, including the outside utility room and potting shed, could be developed into a small cottage in a similar style and layout to the courtyard beyond.

Pretty gardens surround the house on three sides. Beside the drive, a large willow shades a pretty pond. On the east side of the house, the terrace off the Dining Room enjoys superb views. There are raised vegetable beds, a former butterfly house, a pretty wildlife pond, terraced lawns, a small orchard and chicken paddock.

There are three meadows. To the north off the lane is a 3 acre field with a useful range of buildings, comprising a three bay dutch barn and two lean-tos. These would make ideal stables. This field is also a mixed fruit orchard of 35 trees. In front of the house, the meadow slopes down to the Beache brook. Accessed off the lane, the track runs across this field into the southern meadow. These traditional wildflower meadows are cut annually for hay after the flowers have seeded.
