The converted 18th century barn has high ceilings and exposed beams. We retained much of what was already there (mangers for sinks, stable partitions for walls, bricks for the bar), and the rest is in keeping with what was there (reclaimed slate dairy shelves for the surfaces, and lime wash for the walls). But now it is cosy and well-equipped with its wood-burning stove, comfortable seating and beds, Tom Hammick tapestries, Wi-Fi, and an HD projector. Downstairs is an open-plan space with well a equipped kitchen (large electric oven, fridge), bar, table large enough for 18, and sofa. Although upstairs is also open plan, beds nestle in 5 niches made by the beams. There is one double and 4 singles, but 2 more singles fit in easily. There are also 2 toilets and a large free-standing bath/shower from where you can see the swallows darting about in the unconverted part of the barn.
