This is the old Farmhouse viewed from the South (Woodville Road) situated in upper town Hartshorne on the corner of Woodville Road and Dinmore grange. The present structure was built in approximately 1740 and now rendered on the exterior. The original foundations are stone and probably date back to a 14th Century timber frame building. It was the major farm in upper town Hartshorne when it was built.

It is of brick skin construction with oak timbering inside. The oak beam above the breakfast room fireplace is particularly spectacular being 18 inches deep at the centre and over 20 feet long.

The property has two brick built cellars. In these cellars there are 'Thrawls' where pig meat was kept salted and hooks in the ceiling where meat would hang.

Attached to the rear of the farm house is a timber framed barn, now converted into an annex. One bay of this barn (there are 4 remaining now) was demolished off the end to allow room for new development in Dinmore Grange.

The house and barn are all that is left of Dinmore farm. The buildings and 2nd barn were demolished to make way for the Dinmore Grange development after a fire in the farm yard in 1997.

The property has been renovated and refurbished.
