We came here during a fun filled visit to the North East. Despite how trashed the building is, it's still an enjoyable walk around.

Unfortunately the chapel had a massive steel shutter over the entrance, so that plan quickly diminished. Still was a nice, relaxed visit. Had a brief look at the farm and chose not to bother.
