With the barn incorporated into the main house, stunning oak doors were completed with distinctive blacksmith-made fittings. Stonework was restored and re-pointed with lime mortar.

The old yard became a feature in its own right, with impressive sandstone round steps and setts.

The delighted owners described the work as ‘exceptional’.
