Five Barred Gate Barn description

Dating back to the early 1800s, this detached, stone built former shippon provides beautifully presented accommodation, and offers plenty of charm and character as well as having all the modern comforts to be expected from a holiday home, including open plan living, underfloor heating, woodburner and wi-fi. It is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and is perfect for a couple but with the capacity to accommodate up to four people looking for a comfortable base from which to explore all that the area has to offer.
