Originally an entirely wooden structure, The Barn has been converted into a spacious and luxurious country house using some of the original timbers as features. The building bears witness to Tony’s love of everything natural and organic – and to a little of his trademark eccentricity! Its bright, airy rooms and welcoming ambiance will ensure your stay is comfortable and cosy.

All materials, from stonework to wooden beams, have been sourced from local suppliers and have been hand-crafted and put in place by local craftsmen.

Inside The Barn

The bright hallway leads into the comfortable sitting room with its big welcoming fire-place, and there are French doors that open onto the patio area. This is a great sun-trap all year round and, from here you can wander through the herb and vegetable garden. The Long Table in the dining area encourages conversation and debate, and there are six bedrooms, all en-suite.  Each bedroom is named after one of our beloved ponies, and, just like them, each has its own very individual character.

“Hi Tony,
 Just a quick note to say thanks to you and Louise for all the attention you gave us over the last weekend. Everything was so well organised, from the wonderful sitting room with a seasonal log fire roaring a welcome to us, to the light airy bedroom. You have really achieved a wonderful venue for any activity with the house you built. Congratulations.”
