A spacious five/six bedroom traditional stone barn conversion (OC), currently divided into two dwellings and a one bedroom holiday cottage, with a good range of traditional and modern buildings, set in approx. thirty eight acres with wonderful views
A rare opportunity to acquire an excellent rural country farm with approx. thirty-eight acres, in the stunning Peak District National Park.
This large five/six bedroom stone built barn conversion would be ideal for multi-generational occupation, with the added benefit of an additional one bedroom holiday cottage, let by the current vendors via Air BnB.
Currently utilised as a working cattle farm, there is a good range of both modern and traditional outbuildings, which would be equally well-suited to a range of agricultural and equestrian interests. There is scope for the further development of the holiday letting side with potential for camping/caravanning, fishing etc, subject to gaining the necessary planning consents.
The nearby village of Longnor has local facilities including a primary school, two pubs, newsagents, post office and chip shop. Further facilities can be found in the nearby market town of Leek and the spa town of Buxton, both of which are easily accessible.
