Converted from a traditional stone barn in 2007/8 including raising the height to 2 full storeys and completely renewing the roof. Incorporating hidden re-enforcing steel so that a very durable structure has been created.

Traditional materials have been used including locally quarried stone for all windows and lime mortar which allows external walls to breathe.

The resulting Cottage (107m2) of accommodation) is considered by everyone who stays there as delightful, spacious and luxurious.

You can see below floor plans and how to get more details on the interior.

3 Bedroomed Cottage with adjacent traditional stone barn


This Cottage is one of the 2 holiday rental buildings included in the property. The interior is very well described on our main holiday web site and it seems pointless to replicate it here.

So, please use the floor plans opposite to give you a clear idea of the layout of the rooms and then read the detailed description that can be found here.

The many positive reviews that you can read on the web site will confirm that the Cottage is very popular with holiday makers.


It is very easy to design in accessability requirements for wheelchair users when you are laying out a building. Wide doors, roll in wet room and no steps. It is also easy to build in hidden strong wall timbers to allow the attachment of the safe grab handles which enable the disabled to use bathroom and shower.

We have done this carefully so a non-disabled person would not feel they are in an accesible bathroom like you find in a motorway service station.

The ground floor suite has been a great success with able bodied or disabled visitors. Crucially, by designing this in, we are able to attract bookings from families with one or two disabled members.

Accesible accomodation is in short supply AND these family groups are often happy to holiday outside of the summer school holidays and so make a very important contribution to our rental income.

Floor Plan Explanatory Notes:

The available floor plan software cant cope with the wall thickness of these lovely old stone buildings (60cm or greater). All measurements show floor area.

For example windows are set near to the outer surface of walls and the opening is often angled so it becomes wider from outside to inside to allow in the maximum light.

So please use the plans to give you an appreciation of the room layout and sizes. 

If you need a precise dimension then please email.
