Description

In addition to the main house is the Old Stables, a granite, reverse level barn conversion with three en-suite bedrooms, ideal for home and income or multi-generational living. The farmhouse and the Old Stables are set in a courtyard with a number of useful granite barns currently used as workshops and a hobbies room. A particular feature of Great Doccombe Farm is the land and stunning countryside backdrop.
