The Long Barn was originally a milking shed. In the wall behind the stove you can see the ring where they used to tether the bull when the cows were busy being milked. It has been lovingly converted into a comfortable two-bedroom holiday apartment, with all modern amenities but a rustic country feel.
From the drive where you park there is a short walk up a slate path to five steps, then your own front door. Inside, you get a view down the long corridor giving the Barn its name. The first door on the right is a spacious bathroom, with bath for relaxing soaks, and a powerful shower.
Next door is the small utility room, with helpful amenities like washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board, and high chair and travel cot for smallies.
The first bedroom is the twin room, with twin good quality wooden bedframes with modern firm mattresses and a small wardrobe.
The next bedroom along is the double, with a hand-carved pine bedstead, good quality mattress, twin bedside tables and reading lamps and large pine wardrobe. There’s also space in the corner here for the travel cot, if required.
(The emphasis with bed linen is natural breathable fabrics, high thread-count cotton and designer linens, and duckdown quilts and pillows, so if you have any allergies you’re probably better advised to bring your own bed linen.)
At the far end of the barn you come to the kitchen/living room with Neff oven, Miele dishwasher, five ring gas hob, microwave, an assortment of pots and pans, and tableware settings for four. Pride of place in the far corner is the wood-burning stove. You won’t need it if you’re a summer visitor, but out of season it’s a joy to sit in front of a crackling log fire. We do a good deal for a heaped basket of firewood! There’s a flat-screen for streaming Netflix or mirroring off your laptop and a “Pirate’s Chest” full of board games and toys.
