A biomass pellet boiler was installed in March 2014 under a seven year lease providing heating and water.
Initial enquiries with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council also suggest that planning permission could be forthcoming for conversion of the barns to holiday accommodation.

The property benefits from a system which provides heating and hot water and is powered by a highly efficient biomass pellet boiler which was installed in 2014.
