Shire Horse Barn


Shirehorse Barn stands on the site of the old barn that housed the brood mare shire horses during World War 1 from which it takes its name.

It is a fabulous 3 bedroom 5* dog friendly barn conversion on one level with high ceilings, restored original oak beams, log burner, part ash paneled ceiling and oak flooring.

The kitchen and dining area look out onto the block-paved courtyard and there are views of the lakes and farm from the lounge and bedrooms 1 & 2.

At the heart of this cottage is the kitchen/diner/lounge – an ideal family area where everyone can do their own thing independently yet “together”.

The fitted dining kitchen offers an excellent selection of pots, pans, utensils and glassware together with a range of large and small electrical appliances. It is spacious and comfortable and opens directly through a brick arch into the lounge, a warm and homely room full of character and charm with its high ceiling, red leather settees, log burner and wooden oak floor.

The master bedroom is directly off the lounge and features a super king size bed and superb solid pine furniture – it has a calm and tranquil feel. There is ample room for a cot. The en suite is comprised of a large shower, his’n’hers wash hand basins and toilet.
The “family“ bedroom sleeps up to 4 people. It is off the lounge and is spacious with a high ceiling, king size double bed, 2 single divans and solid pine bedroom furniture. There is also a small play area for the children!

The third bedroom is off the kitchen area and with single bed, wardrobe, drawers and wash hand basin is ideal for Grandma or a teenager!

The family bathroom has a bath with overhead shower. It is accessed from the lounge.

Board, card games and jigsaws to suit all ages are kept in the dresser and there is easy reading and local information available.
