Over the years the site has gained a significant amount of coverage in the regional and national press. There are a selection of articles written by visiting journalists available on the internet.
The property includes the traditional farmhouse that has been substantially extended and sympathetically renovated to provide generous and high quality living accommodation. Over the years the owners have renovated the two existing semi-detached cottages and converted the traditional stone barn opposite to provide a third self-catering cottage. We have been informed by the owners that the two semi-detached cottages have planning for residential use if required while the third detached cottage is currently for holiday letting use only. Beyond the cottages lies the traditional farmyard with a range of modern outbuildings that include a number of new ones that have been added by the owners. The farm extends to about 46.7 acres in all including the entrance track (stms – subject to measured survey).
