This stunning barn conversion stands in approximately one acre of grounds and features beautifully presented interiors which include an impressive open plan living / dining room with a magnificent stone fireplace at its heart.

Standing within the grounds is a detached two-bedroom cottage, recently finished to a high standard with a superb open plan living dining kitchen, utility room and two en-suite bedrooms; an ideal ‘Granny Flat’ or holiday let.
