Our Self Catering Farm Cottages

The ‘upside down` properties were converted from a 17th century stone barn which used to be used as stables and a cider barn (hence the names of the cottages !) and still maintain a wealth of the original features , but with light and contemporary interiors.

The barn has been divided into two self catering units:

The Cider Barn – This accommodation comprises of one double bedroom with room for a cot or single z-bed, bathroom which has a bath with shower over, and separate toilet downstairs. A half landing leads through the original Cider Press into the double aspect fully equipped kitchen / diner with stairs leading to the first floor sitting room and first floor access to the outside area. ln the sitting room is a leather bed settee which makes the self catering cottage suitable for 4 guests including children. (Pictures of The Cider Barn are the top four).

The Stables – This accommodation comprises of two bedrooms, one double bedroom with room for a cot or single z-bed and one twin room also with two single beds , that can be converted into bunk beds and room for a cot, and bathroom downstairs with stairs leading up to the large open plan living area with fully equipped kitchen /diner ,sitting room, upstairs toilet and first floor access to the outside area. In the sitting room one of the leather settees is a bed settee which makes the self catering cottage suitable for 6 guests including children. (Pictures of The Stables are the bottom four).
