Sleeps 2 People in One King Size Double Bedroom

Dated 1673 the little barn is attached to the main house and has been converted to retain much character with a wealth of old beams and features throughout.

The old high barn door with slated overhang gives the impression of its former use and the interior will delight those who appreciate the charisma of a bygone age combined with highly appointed amenities and individual attention to detail.

Entrance is through an oak stable door into the open plan living area with original exposed stone wall to one end. A fine stone fireplace with beam over houses a living flame gas stove.

To the side are two stone supports on which sit an old stone slab. The colour TV, DVD and hi-fi system are sited on this slab. A beamed area with built-in oak bookcase makes an attractive feature of the under stair space and solid oak planked floor is very much in keeping with the building.

The dining area leads through from the living room and this in turn leads into the kitchen both of which have oak planked floors.


The kitchen is custom made with all the units being of solid oak. There are mosaic slate tiles for the work tops with a double bowl ceramic sink and an induction hob set into the work tops. A built-in double over and microwave make cooking easier and the dishwasher, fridge and freezer are hidden behind oak doors underneath the work tops.

The dining table is made of a cart wheel with tree trunk for the base and the chairs are rustic but comfortable.

This is situated by the barn door, which is glazed and at many times of the year there are numerous birds to delight the eye. The swallows return home and nest in the slate overhang. This year there were five young swallows born at Swallows Rest.

Oak stairs lead from the living room to the first floor with its pitched roof. Again all floors upstairs are oak planked. There is a king size bed with oak built in furniture and TV with video.

Original horizontal beam is a most unusual and rather romantic feature and this divides the bedroom from the galleried landing, which looks down onto the dining area.

From the gallery, through an oak door into the shower room which is highly appointed. The shower is tiled with large slate tiles and incorporates a deep shelf within the shower cabinet and is most attractive.
