The Byre

Sleeps 4-6 | Courtyard | Accessibility-friendly | Private parking

The Byre is a ground floor cottage with a stylish and contemporary feel. It has a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a twin room with an en-suite shower room, plus it is occasionally possible to add a third bedroom - a double room with ensuite shower room.  Wake up to beautiful views across the cornfields after a good night’s sleep in the comfortable beds with crisp, quality linen. Then watch the sun set from the small garden courtyard right outside the front door (alongside private parking). The Byre can interconnect with The Cowshed making one large cottage sleeping up to 8. 

DID YOU KNOW – the Byre and the Cowshed are interconnected and can be booked individually (with complete privacy, of course), as a pair with the partition removed, or individually as 1 or 3 bedroom properties depending on availability.

If you wish to know more, please contact Jean on 01827 880448 or email before you book.

Ideal place for a family weekend together.

The Sawyer family
March 2019

This was a fantastic place for a family weekend. We had The Byre, The Cowshed and The Piggery for 2 gatherings of 15. Everything was just perfect. Jean was most welcoming and the flapjacks went down a treat!

Wonderful place to celebrate brother” Golden Wedding. We were able to have all the family including 9 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren - usually difficult to arrange but perfect here. An enjoyable but all too short stay in lovely and peaceful surroundings. Excellent standard of accommodation. Much appreciated.
