The patio.....

Enjoy the view from the comfort of your sofa
Upstairs is reached by the stunning reclaimed cast iron spiral staircase
The West Bedroom - light, bright and spacious
A long soak to ease those hill-tramping muscles!
The East Bedroom - extra-wide single beds and, of course, the view!
A quiet corner for a read or a doze

triplet lambs receiving extra tlc from the hens as well as their mum!

We stayed in The Old Barn for a week in July 2014 with my mum, sister and my husband. We absolutely loved it.
