Description

Mounts Farm Barn is a beautiful Grade II listed conversion which is understood to date in part from the 16th century with later 18th century additions. Having been sympathetically converted in the late 90's with further works having been carried out by the current owners, it retains much of the integrity and charm of the original old oak building, together with reclaimed oak joinery and contemporary touches, including under floor heating and floor to ceiling glazing to a number of rooms.

The main house offers beautifully presented family accommodation which is arranged around two sides of a wonderful courtyard garden, with the majority of the ground floor rooms enjoying the south easterly and south westerly outlook.
