“There is a large en-suite bedroom, which was converted from an old barn and is now incorporated into the main cottage. This beautiful area has its own kitchenette, en-suite bathroom, and its own external entrance should you wish to have family and friends stay but enjoy their own comforts.

“The other outbuilding is a stand-alone poured concrete building from the 1950s and was used for farm equipment and pigsty.
