The Barn and Pinn Cottage is 500 years old, the vendors have refurbished it with loving care and consideration for both guests and the property.

The driveway and car park are tarmac, where guests can be dropped off by the front door if they wish.

The gardens surrounding the property has seating areas both in the front garden and also at the back. There is a smaller garden which has a gently sloping gravel pathway just by the pond? leading to a really peaceful sunny area for guests to use.

The cottage is a period property. It has been refurbished to an amazing standard rarely seen in such properties and the vendors are exceptionally proud of their feedback and comments by the guests with reference to their stay and property in general.

The site also benefits from a large detached new build bungalow built by the vendors within the grounds, this property being separated by a large fence and acts as the owner’s accommodation. Like the main property the specification within the build is ultra deluxe and is a credit to the vendors and included within the sale. The business has excellent scope to expand and develop further and is reluctantly offered for sale due to the retirement of the vendors.
