Furnished to a high degree of comfort and style, the barn has all the expected modern day comforts, along with an internal games room with full size snooker table. All bedrooms (except one) and principal reception rooms are on the ground floor and the barn sits within the owners grounds of some seven acres of woodland and paddocks where horses graze.
