It has been recently run as a B&B and Cookery School and offers spacious, charming accommodation which is full of character.  There are 9 en-suite bedrooms.  For those wishing to maximise the potential of the property there is a huge stone barn and chapel which could be converted into additional accommodation, letting rooms or function rooms, subject to planning.  The Old Bakery could also be completed and rented out as a self-contained unit.  Viewing is highly recommended.
