The barn is old, maybe 200 years or more. It was originally a stables and then a cow shed until a few years ago. It has now been converted into a warm, comfortable cottage with big rooms, a south-facing sitting room leading to a pleasant conservatory and garden. The kitchen has been hand-made in Oak by local craftsmen and is fitted with a modern wood-fired range. The full central heating is also fired by wood, but looked after for you by the owners. Our prices include all electricity and wood fuel.
The key features of the cottage are:
The cottage is approached through a ford and most of the time it can be driven through by all types of vehicle. A few times a year, after a very heavy storm, it is passable only in a 4x4 vehicle. As soon as the storm has passed, the water level quickly returns to normal. If you happen to arrive in a storm, you can park by the chapel and we will bring you and your luggage up in a Landrover.
Children are welcome but not pets. The cottage is non-smoking.
The downstairs is easily accessed by those with limited mobility. There is also good access for a wheel chair from the car park into the ground floor of the cottage. The downstairs washroom is adjacent to the downstairs bedroom. The washroom is only suitable for those with some mobility as it is unable to accommodate a wheel chair.
The Cottage conversion design was eco-friendly from the outset. There is a high level of insulation throughout. The hot water is heated by the sun. The central heating and cooking facilities are fuelled with wood grown in our forest nearby and the electricity is generated by solar panels.
"What a wonderful house you have. Everything you could ask for. It was peaceful and quiet. Decia and Keith were brilliant hosts and very informative. Ground floor bedroom was ideal as one of our party had trouble with mobility issues. Thank you once again for a beautiful week. Chip shop in village is lovely." (Jane, Dennis and Shirley – June 2022)
