OUTSIDE, OUTBUILDINGS & LAND

The property is approached via a forest trackway and sits in a part wooded valley in a beautiful tucked away location. We understand that the forest track carries on up to one other property beyond. Off the trackway there is a lower paddock which has been dog-fenced and has a Summer House. This area has previously been utilised for exercising dogs on a paid basis. 

Above this there is a part wooded banked area with a small silver birch coppice, this land would improve to provide further pasture / grazing. Further along the drive there is a GI Store / Shelter 13’6 x 9’ (about 4.1m x 2.7m)

Below the house there is a Workshop 20’ x 8’8 (about 6.1m x 2.7m) with light and power plus adjoining Store 20’ x 8’ (about 6.1m x 2.4m) and a former Isolation Kennel to side. There is a further Lean-to Store. Beyond the house there is a Mono-pitched Barn 21’ x 10’6 (about 6.4m x 3.2m) with light and power, currently containing four Goat Pens and a Timber Shed / Feed Store. These buildings have a paddock above, with a Pig Sty. There is a further Poultry Shed and a number of further small paddock areas.

There are a number of Kennel Buildings and Cat Pens which were utilised for the former Kennel and Cattery business although please note that this property is not being sold as a kennels and cattery, and it is believed that these facilities would need to be substantially updated to continue any similar business.

At the rear of the property there is a former Home Office and a small Rear Courtyard off of which there are several other Kennel Buildings as well as a Lean-to Washroom with stainless steel sink and a Timber Feed Store. Immediately to the front of the cottage there is a Paved Seating Area with a beautiful view looking back down the valley as well as a small orchard area with a variety of soft fruit trees, a vegetable garden and chicken enclosure.
