Going through the door from the hallway the downstairs accommodation opens up in to an open plan living/kitchen/dining area. There is comfy seating in front of the log burner, and at the other end of the room, kitchen work surfaces lead round to the dining area, where there are 2 alcoves for dining, contained within the old boskins. Back out to the entrance hall, the stairs lead up to the first floor where there are 2 dormitories. There are also 2 shower rooms, with wash basins and toilets on the first floor. This barn has basic sleeping accommodation, and as such you would need to bring your own bedding. It is in a truly stunning location, and due to its remoteness it is not always possible to park close to it. We will talk you through transportation to and from Raydale Barn, however please expect a walk from either Marsett or Stalling Busk.More
