This was an unplanned visit - saw an opportunity as I drove past and, thankfully, took it. It's worth noting that, should you visit, the gatehouse is occupied by an irate lady and at least two Great Danes. She wasn't best pleased to see me as I was leaving

History
The Coach House and stables are most likely early C19 and contemporary with Rheola House, the country house of 1812-18 designed by John Nash for his cousin John Edwards. The parkland at Rheola is by Nash and the Edwards family and is designed to be compact, picturesque and rural. The stable would have provided stabling for the horses of Rheola House and would have been built as part of the parkland being deliberately located so as not to interrupt the distant views towards the house. Single storey garage wing added early C20.

The house beside it is the site of the former mill house and subsequent farm house. It has the prettiest of locations next to the brook but its condition is deteriorating fast.

That's really nice. I do love old stable blocks. They have so much character. Nice to see you posting on here.

Those stables are stunning. Very similar to those at Calke Abbey which is national trust
Thanks very much. Yes, I remember visiting Calke many years ago - similar stables, as you say. Also echoed in Tredegar Park, Newport (which is also NT)
