This paper discusses the factors that determine the appreciation of rural buildings by neighbouring rural and urban residents. This is done against the background of government policy to keep rural areas rural. The findings of a detailed study in the Guelderland Valley show that the area maintains a rural appearance despite the fact that the majority of its buildings is no longer used for farming. Small-scale non-agricultural reuse is appreciated more than large-scale agricultural buildings of an industrial nature. It is recommended that function and strategy should follow form and structure.
