We are converted from an old stone barn, subject to planning restriction. Due to the fact this property is in the heart of the countryside, we regret by its nature, access is limited. It is 10 minutes walk along a fell track from the nearest road at Sandwick. There is no vehicle access allowed except a staff driven ATV.
