Dons Barn was once an early 1700’s Winnowing Barn but has now been converted into a romantic cosy holiday cottage which retains much of its original character and beauty. It is set within rolling countryside and has a delightful view over the orchard through massive barn door windows. Dons Barn is located at The Old Grove Farm and is one of six exception character cottages positioned around two central courtyards - offering a good degree of privacy and seclusion.
The farm is designed in an interesting enclosed, double quadrangle, giving hints of a possible monastic history. The large mature gardens surrounding the property can be enjoyed by guests for relaxing in or having a barbecue on a nice summer's evening. They lead straight onto open farmland and benefit from lovely views.
The unique interiors and original furniture of the cottages along with the lovely old Persian rugs and open fires give a very special relaxed feeling. This being made even more special by the beautiful furnishings, attention to detail and preservation of so many original features.
The local area is charming with small pretty villages nestling in the river valleys on all sides including the beautiful and perfectly preserved mediaeval villages of:
Whether you enjoy walking, cycling, relaxing in beautiful countryside or want to explore this lovely area, Don's Barn is the perfect place for two guests.
