Property description

Now with planning permission for use as two separate dwellings! Character barns in rural setting - Situated in a rural setting in a pretty wooded valley in the foothills of Hay Bluff and the Black Hill two delightful converted stone barns, each providing character accommodation and standing in around 1.2 acres of gardens and woodland.
