The gardener's cottage is structurally sound previously used as an office with 2 rooms downstairs each with fireplace, upstairs is one large room office/bedroom and a WC with handbasin, some renovation is necessary to make it habitable ie Kitchen and bathroom but would make a lovely Gte with its own garden . The stables are housed in a building that mirrors the Gite and therefore have the potential to create further accommodation whilst still maintaining the stables.
