Hay Barn and workshop
The rear barn is 12m x 8m and will take an 8 metre horse box sideways, we have had more than 25 tons of hay stored in here on two levels. Half of the ground level we currently use as a workshop tool storage plus grass cutting tractors bikes etc.



Parent annexe
There is a slate-roofed building with two floors at the rear of the property of 13.2m x 5.2m. We used this building as storage for our clothing business, so the floors were re-laid and sealed. It has electricity and has an upper floor and would lend itself to being converted into a small home for parents or a guest suite.

Vehicle shed
Dimensions 13.2 x 6.9m, this was built to house our two horse boxes, one 12 m in length and the other 8m. They could both fit easily into this barn, which has electricity, lighting, sky lights plus large sliding door and a concrete floor. It is used for general storage now. It could be changed into a modern 4-5 horse stable block American style.

Cave á vin
This holds a 1500 litre cider barrel which is currently in use. We have produced cider and Pommeau for our own consumption.There are wine racks for more than 400 wine bottles with room to expand to triple that if required.

Stable barn and tack rooms ▼
Dimensions 25m x 5m. Traditional slate roof, 3 stables, tack room and further workshop storage room. Upstairs the space runs the whole length of the building. We had an architect draw up plans for two luxury gîtes and one further one bedroom gîte. The whole building was lime rendered 2010.


Wood barn and machinery storage                                                            
Dimensions 25m x 12m. This was originally built for intensive beef cattle rearing. It could be converted into a large stable area, we use it just for the farm machinery and storing wood.

Equestrian facilities

This picture was taken nearly 15 years ago and does not represent the overview of what the house and grounds look like today as the oak trees lining the drive are now quite large. The manége is 60m x 30m is drained for horse training and is floodlit. It has been grassed over since we stopped riding competitively, but it would be very easy to return it to a sand manege.

There are three stables in the courtyard of the property and the possibility of creating eight or more in the buildings at the back of the property. There are three large outbuildings for storing hay and straw.

The property has 9 hectares (22.23 acres) and we currently rent a further 3 hectares. The greater part is for the production of maize for animal feed and a three field rotation for horses, although the whole parcel could be put back to grass, so many possibilities.
