This wonderful collection of converted former farm buildings provide a charming, unique home in a beautiful setting which offers superb versatility and scope depending on the lifestyle required. Currently arranged as a main 3/4 property, with one self contained holiday let (converted approximately 2 years ago), a photography studio complex and further framing studio. However the outbuildings could very easily be converted (subject to any necessary planning consents) to extend the holiday let accommodation if desired. A brief description of the dwelling is as follows with approximate dimensions but we strongly recommend viewing to fully appreciate all this exceptional property has to offer.
