In addition to the double garage and the car port there are a further two rooms in between one of which has been refurbished and converted into a play room or office space. Back in 2005 planning permission was granted to turn these outbuildings in to a holiday cottage. This planning consent has since expired although the potential remains in place for additional accommodation or holiday letting with an income, subject to current planning consents necessary.

Approximately 10 years ago the current owners extensively refurbished the property throughout and extended the building. Included in this was a new boiler and heating system and the property was rewired throughout.
