Relax in the tranquil south facing courtyard garden, a perfect spot to gather on a sunny day. Cook an alfresco meal on the massive Weber gas BBQ and gather around the huge oak table. Pick fresh herbs from the garden to compliment your meal. Look out for garden wildlife; the courtyard is planted with many species which attract bees and butterflies, which in turn attract a real variety of birds. Look out in Spring for birds nesting in the garden from starlings to martins.On clear moonless nights, the stars can be truly spectacular; you may well see the Milky Way.
The spectacular West barn is just off the courtyard, and is a wonderful social space to spread out in further. This space is set up as a games room with underfloor heating and projector for watching movies or playing games on the Sony PS4. It’s great for a range of activities, from yoga to chocolate making workshops, that we can help organise for you.
There is plenty of space to park in the courtyard, and the cattle grid means you don’t have to jump in and out of the car to shut the gate (and also protects the garden from marauding sheep).
The Long Barn (and entire site) is heated with a wonderful green biomass boiler which burns wood pellets; it’s Ian’s pride and joy, and he is happy to give a tour for anyone interested!
