A sanctuary of relaxation and indulgence.

And as the day gently fades, there’s no better place to watch the sun bid adieu than from the soothing embrace of the hot tub, where the sky’s canvas transforms into a breathtaking masterpiece.

Step inside, and you’ll be greeted by the grandeur of triple height vaulted wood ceilings that reach for the heavens, and the tactile allure of exposed stone walls that whisper tales of history. The Old Barn is more than just a holiday cottage; it’s a seamless extension of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that cradles it, an ode to the splendor of its surroundings.

A culinary haven awaits in the spacious, well-equipped kitchen, complete with a four-door electric Aga and an espresso/cappuccino coffee maker, promising gastronomic delights. Gather around the generous table, where laughter and conversations flow freely. The heart of the home beckons you to unwind in the splendid triple height drawing room, with a gallery above that offers a captivating view down the valley. An intimate snug tucked within the gallery invites you to sink into a world of comfort amidst the rustic allure of exposed beams and stone walls, and an extensive library beckons for those seeking a respite from the everyday hustle and bustle.

The bedrooms unfold their own tales of comfort and opulence. The ground floor boasts a sunlit haven with a super king-size bed and an ensuite shower room, complemented by a sunroom that spills onto a private terrace and enclosed lawn. Ascend to a world of serenity in the upper chambers – a bedroom with a  kingsize bed and a balcony that reveals the valley’s enchantment , connected to a family bathroom. Above here nestled in the barn’s embrace, a cozy twin bedroom offers a cocoon of tranquility.

At the far end of this sanctuary, the Family Suite beckons.
