The Main House
The building, originally a log cabin, was built during the first half of the 18th Century and remains on its original site. Probably originally covered with a turf roof, this was later replaced by shingles, reed and thatch. The house is furnished with items from the local area.
The barn was originally a corner post construction with horizontal sawn planks inserted in the corner posts. Within the barn there is a smaller carriage shed and an exhibition showing peat preparation in the area.
The stables were erected in the 19th Century with a half-timbered front and the remaining walls in granite. When the building was renovated in 1968 a tiled roof was laid over the the existing shingles, which had in their turn replaced an earlier thatched roof. In the hayloft there is a permanent exhibition showing how agriculture was conducted in the district, from sowing to harvest.
