The barns offer a wide scope of alternative uses (STP) and are centred upon an impressive two storey Tythe barn of local stone elevations with attractive brick coins and stone mullion arches.

In addition to the traditional barns are four modern Dutch barns of steel frame construction under profile steel roofs. There may be the possibility of residential consent under Class Q, subject to satisfying the necessary criteria. For the exact dimensions of these barns, please refer to the floorplan and land plan within these particulars of sale.


Adjoining the gable end of the Tythe barn is a two bedroom period cottage offering two reception rooms with galley kitchen and bathroom to the rear and two double bedrooms over.
