This romantic self contained open plan barn is full of quirky charm! In the heart of the village with two country pubs and conveniently opposite the Spar shop. Double bed (190cm L x 135cm W) upstairs and two singles/sofas below. Separate shower/wc. Private courtyard and off road parking.
Beautiful grade 2 listed Georgian property with original Blue Lias flagstone flooring and a stunning exposed wattle and daub wall. Lovely mix of old and new beams and large screen window overlooking your private courtyard. Ideally suited for a romantic break away. The barn, apart from a separate shower room/wc, is all open plan.
The bedroom area on the mezzanine floor is limited to space as it is in the eaves of the roof. As you will see from the photos, the bed is very close to the top step and therefore extra care should be taken whilst getting in and out of bed. The apex of the roof is not a million miles away and again care should be taken not to bump your head! There are 2 roof light windows, one of which is a fire escape window and we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the workings in the event of a fire.
There are two single beds on the ground floor which also double up as sofas during the day with plenty of cushions for extra comfort.
All bed linen and towels are provided. We appreciate your help so that we do not have to wash items unnecessarily - anything that has not been used, i.e. pillows or towels, should be left neatly and quite separately from those used items.
The barn is not ideal for small children/toddlers as there are many stairs and areas where little ones may come a cropper! Also being open plan means there is no quiet area as such. We do not have either a cot or high chair or suitable bathing facilities.
The kitchen area has a table (seats 4), kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge/freezer and sink. There is no cooker.
The barn has it's own entrance and porch with coat hooks and space for wellies.
There is a parking space on the property (under the pergola) and directly outside the barn. Access to the driveway is a little tight but there is a reversing space so that you can leave the property going forward!
Being on the corner of the High Street and a residential road means that inevitably you will hear some local traffic.
If there is no one at home to greet you, the key to the barn will have been left for you in a pre-arranged secret place!
In the event of any mishap, Sally, Michael or their friend and neighbour, Liz, can be contacted - all contact details are on the website.
Any guests needing to use our washing machine/tumble dryer are very welcome - please just ask!
Please ask if you wish to stay beyond the printed departure time of 11.00 a.m. If we do not have guests coming in that day, we are happy for you to stay on until later in the day. All very relaxed!

A welcome larder of breakfast goodies will be waiting for you on arrival. Please let me know if you have any particular likes/dislikes when booking such as full fat milk or whole meal bread..... we like to please.
