Outside Description

Hard to drag yourself out... but do, for large patio doors swing open onto a spacious stone terrace with large table, chairs and parasol. A barbeque is positioned ready for the catch of the day. Cook up with the salt in the air. A couple of stone steps lead up to the shared lawn, which is great for playing and a very sociable space.

Downstairs Description

It is listed and little has changed outside, but from the rugged stone exterior of the former barn, step into to a warm, lime plastered living and dining area with plum corner sofa, plush striped rug stone floors warmed by under floor heating. A wood-burner makes it cosy and a wide screen TV, DVD, Freesat and X-box can while away the hours on the days when rest is called for. Tiny windows in the thick wall offer a glimpse of the barn’s past and twinkle in the candlelight.

The oak dining table and comfortable cream upholstered chairs sit in a quiet corner, great for dining with the candles lit. Down some steps is a sleek, cream galley kitchen with all that you need for your stay, but reluctant cooks can book homemade meals in advance.

First Floor Description

Tucked away up the spiral stairs are two beguiling bedrooms - one twin and one double. The hardships of farm living have, been banished here. You will find crisp white Egyptian cotton bedding and a few toiletries, fluffy towels, bath robes and two luxurious bathrooms.
