The main house enjoys bright, well-proportioned rooms and flexible accommodation, and has been sensitively upgraded by the present owners over recent years. The property has been run as a successful Bed & Breakfast and the accommodation could be easily sub-divided to create separate living, kitchen and bedroom wings.

The accommodation comprises of 3 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, two kitchens, utility/shower room and a boiler/plant room. Externally there are a range of outbuildings, a large garden and an enclosed paddock, with the grounds extending to 1.74 acres in total. Within the paddock there are presently two shepherd’s huts which are let out to holidaymakers, and which may be available by separate negotiation. There is a former carriage house with access from the adjacent courtyard, that has full planning permission for change of use to a two-bedroom residential dwelling (planning reference 20/1862/FUL).
Overall, this offers an excellent business/lifestyle/development opportunity and must be viewed to be appreciated.
