This beautiful barn conversion is perfectly situation for an idyllic retreat in the countryside.

The kitchen is well-equipped for budding cooks should you choose to bring back local ingredients from the nearby farm shops, the local butcher or fresh fish from the coast. A couple of steps lead down to the utility room which has its own entrance from outside and provides storage for muddy wellingtons, and a door leads from here to the bathroom with bath and WC.
