A place to make many wonderful memories with family and friends!. In the centre of the barn is a large covered terrace with a table and chairs to sit 6 comfortably. There are other private terraces to the side and back of the barn, so you can either follow the sun or shade around. The large mature gardens surround the barn on all sides, with much space to run, play, unwind or simply relax in. Set in 80 acres of wild sweeping meadow and woodland, this stunning 16th Century French stone Barn has been beautifully renovated. It is filled with charm and character and has many of the original beams and open stonework, keeping it lovely and cool on those long hot summer days!
The enclosed, fenced and gated swimming pool area has great views with sun loungers and parasols plus an oak Pavilion to relax inside or to escape from the heat of the day! The pool is a beautiful 'kidney shape' and is 9m x 5m and has a depth of 1.30 metres.
There is a fab kids play park, completely private for guests staying in the barn and just 12 steps from the terrace. There is an enclosed trampoline, swings, slide, sandpit and table tennis table, keeping the children entertained for hours and also a separate boules and badminton court! This whole area is a great place for cycling or walking on the many quiet roads.
Sleeps up to 6 plus a cot in 3 charming bedrooms. 1 double bedroom and 2 twin bedrooms. The double bedroom has a king size bed, double wardrobes and dressing table and with a view of the hazelnut trees and woods where the family of red squirrel live! The 2 twin rooms overlook the large back gardens and pool area. They have wardrobes and drawers, so no need to live out of your suitcase!
The country style kitchen is lovely, bright and airy, extremely well equipped with all the modern appliances, including washing machine, fridge freezer, dishwasher, cooker, coffee espresso, toaster etc. Sits 6 comfortably around the table. French doors take you outside to the terrace with the BBQ. It has a large pergola with a gorgeous climbing campsis covering it for shade and is great for Alfresco dining!
Inside the large living area there are 2 sofas and 2 armchairs, TV with English channels, Dvd player a large selection of Dvd's, books and games. The living area leads out onto the raised back terrace, which leads down the garden to the pool area. From here you can watch the most fantastic sunsets! The steps take you into the garden with hammocks nestled between the shady trees for many hours of relaxing and book reading! WIFI

The grounds are full of wildlife, from the daily grazing of deer, family of red squirrels jumping across the hazelnut trees, badgers and wild boars frequent the woods, the hawks, cuckoo's, woodpeckers and owls, these are just a few of the animals you can expect to see or hear whilst on your holiday!

A perfect stay

By Emily O'Shea on 29-Jul-2023

We couldn't have asked for better! The barn was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. The beds and sofas were good. The kitchen had everything you could need. The drinks and snacks on arrival were a lovely touch. The garden was completely beautiful, with amazing flowers and pretty fairy lights in the evening, and there were outdoor spaces for eating, reading and sitting. The pool was clean, well-maintained and private. The whole accommodation seemed very private and we didn't feel overlooked or encroached on by anyone. Tracy was so friendly and helpful and easy to deal with. We didn't see much of the owners, but felt that if we needed anything they would be available and happy to help. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Perfect Place

We couldn't have asked for any more.... the barn is fully equipped and very cosy. The surrounding grounds are just so peaceful, the pool area is amazing, clean and with views to dye for! The village had friendly locals and a few shops. It was a perfect relaxing holiday.

Peace and tranquility and great for kids!!

If you want to lower your blood pressure, then I suggest you book these Gites! The gites are immaculate and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The owner Tracy greeted us upon arrival and was warm and welcoming, always to hand with a smile and nothing was a problem. The gardens were so peaceful that all you could hear were the birds singing. The village is around a 20 minute walk and is full of character with small shops with friendly staff. Will definately be going back
