16th Century Dovecote – The Octagonal Riding School

Part of the Westbury Castle Estate is this 16th Century dovecot which enjoys outstanding views over the parkland below to the sea and provides approximately 4,300 sq ft of floor space.
This 19th Century building was constructed around a 16th Century dovecote, ashlar-faced, with slate roof and a slatted turret.

The building was originally constructed to 'school' the 7th Baronet's racehorses and to teach the Baronet's Children riding skills.

The structure lends itself to an imaginative 'loft-style' conversion to provide character rooms with a contemporary 'twist' (subject to the necessary consents).
The dovecote enjoys outstanding views over the parkland below to the sea and provides approximately 4,300 sq ft of floor space.

Planning permission has been granted under reference: 050264 granted by Flintshire County Council to restore to an original dwelling.
