Hi Heather,

Wecome! It sounds like you’re already using the search on OpenRent (by entering your search area on

In case you didn’t know - once you’ve searched for the area, you can choose to view only pet-friendly properties by ticking the “Accepts Pets” box on the search results page.

There isn’t a specific search option for having outbuildings, so from the above search it would be a case of clicking onto adverts to see if they are suitable. We also have a ‘Message Landlord’ option on all live adverts, where you can message the landlord directly to ask any questions about the property that aren’t clear from the advert.

If we don’t have anything suitable for you right now you can also set up a custom email alert each time we advertise a new property in your area by simply clicking the green “Create Email Alert” button.

Hope that helps, and best of luck with the search!
