The main barn is complemented by an additional detached workshop with studio space above providing potential for ancillary accommodation for visiting friends, dependant relatives or commercial holiday let.

This paddock area has a mixture of gentle slopes and level grassed areas currently being used to grow a variety of organic produce with raised beds, greenhouse and a number of fruit trees.
