Old Dairy Barn home swap

The property has recently been converted and is available as a holiday let. Tucked away behind the owner’s house in a very private location on the edge of a walled village this former dairy has been skilfully converted to a high standard, creating an exceptionally attractive space.

From the unusual approach via an ancient, narrow path and through an archway to a ‘secret’ patio, to the many original features of the building which dates from the early 17th century, Old Dairy Barn exudes character and style. There’s an impressive, beamed open-plan living room with inglenook on the ground floor and inspirational views across the valley towards the city from the main bedroom’s picture window upstairs.

Entrance along a paved pathway into a very attractive, double aspect, beamed, open-plan living room. Fully fitted and well equipped, ‘New England’ style kitchen area with solid oak worktops and Belfast sink; comfortable seating area around a stone fireplace with woodburning stove; dining area at far end. Original stone stairs lead directly up and into a large, double height, double bedroom with impressive original timberwork and stunning views. Access from this bedroom to the second bedroom with antique twin beds. Shower room/wc with extra large cubicle and with separate access from both bedrooms.

Outside: French windows from the main living area lead out onto a very private, walled patio garden at the front of the cottage.
