The farm was abandoned in the 1960’s but used to employ many people from the village 3km away. It was first renovated in 1997, and then developed extensively from 2017-19. The buildings are all made from local granite and dated from the pre-Roman era, most likely 1000’s of years old. Old hand carved aqueducts and animal troughs can still be seen on the farm.
