Welcome to The Granary

The Granary is our larger cottage, with 3 bedrooms, sleeping 6 +1 (+ cot). The character of the barn has been retained with exposed brickwork features and original rafters. And under floor heating, leather sofas and crisp white linen ensure you’ll enjoy a luxurious stay. Every detail has been thought of in this spacious home – you’ll find everything you could ever need in the modern kitchen and if you have little ones please request the stair gate, travel cot, bed guard and high chair.
