Glorious open plan living area in the eaves with wooden floors, squashy sofas and a woodburner for cosy evenings in.


The barn has ‘upside down’ accommodation with a spacious hall leading to two tastefully decorated ground floor double bedrooms with uber comfortable super king and queen size beds (guests tell us this all the time!). The queen size bed can be converted to full size twin beds if you let us know before your stay. Duvets are duck feather & down with 1000 thread crisp white cotton covers.  If you have allergies, we can provide duvets & pillows with artificial fillings if you let us know in advance.

Both bedrooms have their own luxurious shower rooms with large cubicles and very powerful showers. We may be in a village but we have excellent water pressure! There are toasty ladder radiators in each with piles of fluffy white towels and bathrobes for lounging around in.


A glorious open plan living area right in the eaves. It get lots of light from the many roof lights. There is a fully fitted kitchen with hob and oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washer drier. You may prefer not to cook whilst on holiday (like me!) but if you do, you will find everything you need to rustle up a holiday breakfast or dinner. Ask us for fresher than fresh free range eggs, we can usually get extra from our neighbour’s chickens.

The dining area seats four round a sociable circular oak table and leather chairs, whilst at the other end of the room there are two very comfortable squashy sofas, coffee table and an extremely efficient and easy to light wood burner for cosy evenings. You won’t need the heating on with that blazing away!

In case of inclement weather, there is a freeview flat screen TV, DVDs, iPod dock and speakers and a retro CD player with a mountain of CDs from the 80s onwards for a nostalgic evening (if, like us, you go that far back!).  On a more traditional front there are also lots of books and board games. There is a free and very good wifi signal in the barn.


The barn has a secluded, pretty and quirky mini garden right opposite your front door. It’s just right for a morning coffee or evening prosecco.

You can see our local pub, The Star, from your vantage point of the little wrought iron table and chairs in the garden, so why not have your aperitif there before you wander over to indulge in some tasty pub grub. You can find more details about The Star on the ‘Local area’ page.
