Further along into the farm there is a substantial open ended barn with water and electrics to the rear. This provides a handy utility area for you and facilities when lambing. Steps lead from this area to the rear of the barn where there is access to a static caravan with two bedrooms and more than ample living space which is double glazed and central heated. The land sits to the North and South of the property with an 8.15 acre field of gently undulating pasture with stunning and far reaching views. The other fields lie behind the open barn and are sectioned off at present for livestock and a garden area. Gardens stretch around all sides of the house with a selection of mature shrubs and specimen trees. A further 6.85 acres looks North, with an open aspect across more dramatic hills and a beautiful valley. All the land is all well drained with water supplied and makes for excellent grazing or recreational land.DIRECTIONS
