Sympathetically converted from a former farm building, The Barn House offers high specification 'green' accommodation in a tranquil, yet convenient location close to the region’s many visitor attractions.
Formerly an 18th century cow shed and stable block, The Barn House has now been transformed into a characterful holiday cottage for six, which adjoins the owners’ own barn conversion.
The property is finished to a high specification and, tastefully decorated to reflect its history. The Barn House’s dining room features a stunning vaulted oak beamed ceiling, whilst an ornate spiral staircase leads to the first floor where the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom is situated. Two further double bedrooms are located on the ground floor, sharing a further bathroom with shower and WC. Each bedroom features a DVD and digital flat screen TV. Downstairs, the lounge is comfortably furnished with seating for six and a large flat screen TV complete with extensive selection of DVDs.
The property’s well equipped kitchen features quality granite worktops, whilst a large cupboard off houses the ironing board, iron and room to hang coats. Smaller guests’ needs are well catered for with a large selection of indoor and outdoor games, whilst a travel cot and high chair are also available on request.
Thoughtful extras such as a music system, free Wifi to all rooms and garden areas, and outside dining patio, add to this well thought out property’s considerable appeal. Younger visitors (and many older ones too!) will delight at the chance to meet the farm’s many animal friends including sheep, saddleback pigs, chickens and of course, Jimmy the dog. Visit in the Spring and you may even be lucky enough to see new born lambs skipping through the fields!
The farm boasts enviable green credentials that were recently recognised with a prestigious Corporate Social Responsibility Award and it is well on its way to achieving its goal of carbon neutral status. A large amount of its electricity comes from solar panels, whilst in December 2015 a Biomass Install; which supplies both the farm, The Grain Store and The Barn House with year round heating and hot water, was completed.
