Barn bedroom, room 7, in the annexe
We also have a seventh bedroom which is a writing room that doubles up as a bedroom when needed. It is in the ancient Granary barn, across the courtyard from the main house. Here is the view looking back towards the main house from the edge of the barn – it is just a step and a hop away.
The little room in what used to be the granary barn has its own portaloo, and superb views across the distant hills. Ideal for people who love to be in absolute peace and quiet away from others, or just need to focus without any interruption. Comfy Single bed, can be converted to a twin room.
This is the view from your room across the distant hills.
This is the interior view
Please indicate if you would prefer the peace and quiet of this room. Please note you are welcome to take a tray with your buffet lunch or even your evening meal out to this room. An umbrella is provided in inclement weather. Please note the barn room does not have running water but does have an emergency chemical toilet (emergencies only.)
