Barn Conversion (56' 0" x 16' 6" or 17.07m x 5.02m)
Full planning permission has been granted (19/1819/FUL) to convert the stone barn and store into a 2 bedroomed dwelling with a slate roof and accommodation consisting of an open plan lounge and diner, kitchen, bathroom and utility room. Part of the roof has been re-slated but otherwise no work has begun on the conversion.

Storage Shed (46' 2" x 26' 5" or 14.07m x 8.05m)
Opposite the barn is a renovated outbuilding with whitewashed stone walls to the rear and gables with a timber clad frontage and corrugated sheet roofing. There is a concrete floor, a wood burning stove and electricity. There are double doors measuring 3.5m wide and 2.7m high with a pedestrian door set within. Currently this shed is used for storing vehicles with ample room inside.

Horse Stable (36' 4" x 26' 6" or 11.07m x 8.08m)
Attached beside the storage shed are quarters for horses consisting of two stables (3m x 3.7m and 3.2m x 5m), tack room with wood burning stove, rug room and an undercover yard area. Again, these have been built from existing whitewashed stone walls with timber clad frontage and corrugated sheet roofing.
