The highly sought after village of Coveney lies in an elevated position a little over 3 miles west of Ely with the most wonderful panoramic countryside views. The city itself offers a comprehensive range of facilities including schooling for all ages, shopping facilities and numerous leisure activities including an 18 hole golf course, swimming pools gymnasium and squash club.

Featured in 'Buildings of England', by the famous architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner, the origins of Mansion Farm date back we believe to the Middle Ages where it began life as medieval manor house. The majority of what we see today is from the late 1500's with later additions. The well proportioned accommodation has been the subject of comprehensive refurbishment over the years yet retains many original features including several magnificent inglenook fireplaces, exposed timbers and brick work. The extensive outbuildings include two stable blocks, a 18.0m x 11.7m Barn, a former piggery which has since been converted to a suite of three offices and four car garage. Beyond the formal gardens and outbuildings are two separate paddocks and in total the plot extends to approximately 5 acres.
