The spacious accommodation is located down a quiet lane, surrounded by fields where you can see our free range chickens and goats. The barn has its own enclosed patio, small lawn and barbecue area with shared access to our Hot Tub. Access is by an uneven granite path and patio, up 8 granite steps with railings to the unit, and through a low oak entrance door.
The open-plan sitting room/dining area has a balcony overlooking it, which doubles as a spacious master mezzanine bedroom. There is a second bedroom with a double and a single bed off the main level.
We have tried to use environmentally-friendly building methods throughout. Recycled materials have been used wherever possible and lime mortar to re-point the granite to allow the walls to breathe. The roof is insulated with cork; we’ve used non-toxic paints and the water is pre-heated using solar tubes. The floors and window-sills and some internal walls are made from Guernsey elm.
