High, beamed ceilings over the combined living, dining and kitchen area give a spacious feel to this tastefully converted barn, with a cast iron log-effect stove to keep you cosy, The kitchen is fully equipped and provides everything you need to make this your 'home from home'. A selection of books, board games and DVDs ensures that you will always be entertained whatever the weather. The bedroom has a king size bed beneath original wooden beams and attaches to an en-suite bathroom which is light, spacious and finished with large slate tiles and over bath shower. The cottage garden has beautifully stocked borders and a variety of seating and patio areas to make the most of the daytime and evening sun. The patio overlooking Goose Pond houses the gas barbecue for you to use, and the summerhouse by the pond is the perfect place to enjoy a good book and glass of wine!
