“The barns were ruins when I bought the place at the end of 2009. I wanted to put it back to its former self so I built it up again using high quality, reclaimed or handmade materials on the footprint of the old barns – for instance, the terracotta pantiles are handmade by highly reputed William Blyth, with their traditional techniques and an ecologically friendly ethos. It was eventually completed in March 2011”
“I wanted to create something very special and unique – a really spacious party house! It is very rare to find anything like this round here in such a quiet setting surrounded by lovely open fields, and rooms of such huge proportions. The oak trusses in the kitchen diner I wanted to provide a gothic church or barn-like feel with great drama, and the double-height glazing is where the original barn doors would have been”
“The kitchen is bespoke, handmade and painted in Farrow & Ball with granite worktops; it houses a large Rangemaster cooker with gas hob and has an integrated dishwasher, two fridges, and a freezer”
“There are four and a half miles of underfloor heating pipes due to the area they had to cover yet the property is very economical to run with double-glazed, handmade timber windows and doors and so much top-notch insulation, and of course the solar panels help by feeding into a tariff as well as heating the hot water”
“I decided to move into the annex and try renting the rest out; it proved such a popular venue for that it rather took over! I have done holiday lets and been over-run with hen parties! And everyone always wants to come back. There’s a Whirlpool bath that seats four inside and a Party Spa outside that seats sixteen! It was brilliant here during lockdown with sixteen family members staying here for the duration”
“There is such flexibility over how to run the place – it could just be a huge, luxurious, family home, or an equestrian property, naturally, with the paddocks and manège (which is properly draining with a rubber and sand topping). I received planning permission to erect a stable block but it has lapsed; I’m sure it would be easy to get it reinstated”
“It’s a very elite and private place surrounded by space, with just one quiet neighbour in the - also rebuilt - farmhouse next door. The long drive behind the automatic gates leads up to a turning circle where you could park at least ten cars”
Located about 5 miles southwest of Lincoln, Moor Farm Barns is just a mile from Doddington Hall, a privately owned, fine, late Elizabethan mansion with stunning gardens offering a superb farm shop and deli, a café serving meals, a home and garden accessories store including Farrow & Ball paint, a clothing shop and a bicycle shop. The Hall is open to the public with rooms and cottages to rent, and there are many walks and bicycle routes throughout the estate open daily and free to access, in fact, the woodland behind the property is part of Doddington Hall Estate.
