All barns have been devotedly restored and include hand-made country kitchens with granite worktops, all en-suite bedrooms with luxury John Lewis mattresses and individually designed contemporary bathrooms, log stoves and under-floor heating.  They offer the highest standards of attention to detail, comfort, fittings, furnishings, art and design.  Each barn has its own private garden area with barbeque for dining al fresco.
