The barn is set in grounds of three acres with plenty of space for guests to play, rest or dine.

The terrace has outside furniture to dine in comfort, with a charcoal barbecue and the advantage of outside speakers.

The substantial grounds to the rear of the barn are grassed and include a ground level trampoline, a football pitch and an outdoor table tennis table, with plenty of space to run around. A pleasant field walk has been created around the grounds - ideal for dog walkers!

Well-behaved dogs are welcome to stay, however we politely request that they do not "do their business" on the inner courtyard lawned area.
