There is also, a smaller 2 bedroomed cottage that could be used as a gite, a building with 3 stables and a hayloft and another in the courtyard used as garaging for the cars and tractor. A tree lined driveway off a country road and gated entrance provide privacy. The driveway sweeps into the courtyard around which all the buildings are located and there is a field behind suitable for horses or other livestock.
