The Barton Granary is perfect for an enjoyable and relaxing holiday. Sleeping 10 (plus up to 2 babies in cots) it is the perfect venue for a family get together or for groups of friends, whilst still retaining an intimate atmosphere for smaller parties.
This Grade II listed former granary (built in approximately 1830) is at the top of the farm with views towards the village and across fields.
We’ve retained much of the original character of the building and have kept the original horse engine (used for moving grain) as a striking feature in the sitting room. We’ve also retained original beams and stone walls wherever possible throughout the building.
The huge sitting room features a wood burner, open double-height beamed ceiling (incorporating a whole elm tree - which has to be seen to be appreciated), large glass doors to a sheltered patio and a separate gallery area, which makes a perfect place for children to play. On the ground floor there is a large well-equipped kitchen/diner (with access to the patio) and a useful utility room with WC attached together with a twin bedroom and bathroom with shower. Upstairs, the 2 double and 2 twin bedrooms also have many original features and there is a further family bathroom.
There is a small heated indoor swimming pool a short walk away, shared with us and guests at our second cottage, Brimbles. The pool is available daily from 10 am to 7 pm.
