Hall Farm has been in the family for four generations and the Barn has been beautifully restored by the owner, in 2008, with careful consideration to comfort, design and style. With the hand crafted oak staircase that leads to the vast vaulted ceiling with exposed original oak beams, is the open-plan living/dining-room/farmhouse kitchen area with granite worktops allowing light and brilliant views. Solid oak floors and doors give a traditional feel to this fine dwelling. The twin bedroom, which tucks nicely under the beams allowing a closer look at the handmade ancient crafted roof, provides the lower ceiling to the kitchen and dining area. There is a toilet on this level.
