A half turn solid wood staircase leads down to the ground floor. The ground floor is tiled throughout in handmade terracotta tiles from Toulouse.

The family bathroom is also large, it has a separate walk-in shower, freestanding roll top bath, basin, toilet and heated towel rail and French doors which lead into the garden.
The barn occupies a lovely position, sitting in the heart of the village on the green in a 2 acre plot. The barn is bordered by a combination of dry stone wall, fruit trees and two entrances with 5 bar gates. It has its own mature walnut orchard, which provides a shady spot to enjoy the garden in the heat of the summer.
