Work has started!

Beautiful restored building is nearly complete ready for opening in May 2018

After nearly a year of work the stables studio is now nearly finished.  There is a lovely new roof and plenty of roof windows to bring in masses of light.  The landscaping is now in progress.

Here are the latest pictures of the interiors.  We have a state-of-the art painting studio, a fantastic high ceiling living room and kitchen and three bedrooms all ensuite.  The old timber beams have all survived and give the building plenty of character.
