Northcourt Stables. We have had planning granted for  residential coursein the stables and restoration of the building and kitchen garden. The plans are available on the Isle of Wight council website under Due to high costs of renovation and conditions to be satisfied, we are not yet in a position to proceed. However we have built a cottage on footprint of old glasshouses and replaced one glass house for which we received the top IW RIBA award. We fitted a replacement clock tower in June 2018, and the roof has been reslated..
