Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Our comfortable Barn is furnished to a very high standard and is situated close to the main house in nine acres of grounds and within walking distance to two idyllic country villages both of which have excellent dog friendly pubs. The Barn is ideally situated if you are seeking a relaxing break. The surrounding area is renowned for its natural beauty and is a perfect location to enjoy many stunning walks and bike rides. The picturesque Kennet and Avon canal is only 200 metres away.

The space
The ground floor of the Barn has a large open plan living area which includes a very well equipped kitchen, a very comfortable sitting area with Sky TV, DVD player, great all round sound system and a separate eight seater dining table. Upstairs there is a spacious double bedroom with a King sized bed and an adjoining twin bedded room and shower room and WC. The large bedroom also has a comfortable seating area with a lovely view of fields through the French windows as well as a good working desk.
Access to the shower room and WC is via the twin bedded room. Both bedrooms have chests of drawers and hanging space. Additionally there is an outside loo attached to the barn. We have provided a large dog cage and dog bed. Please ensure dogs do not go upstairs by using the gate at the bottom of the stairs. There is an outside tap for washing them down if needed. The porch has a useful area for hanging wet weather clothes and boots.
The Barn is an excellent base for exploring the area and a comfortable location for business visitors to the Marlborough, Hungerford, Newbury, Andover and Swindon area.

Guest access
You will have access to part of the garden with a table and 4 chairs and are welcome to walk through the seven acres up to the woods adjoining our pony and sheep paddocks. The views from the top of the field are stunning and a lovely place to have a cup of tea or a glass of wine on a summer’s evening seated on a covered bench. We also have a children’s play area which may be used as long as children are supervised.

Other things to note
Off road parking next to the Barn. Well behaved dogs (and children!) welcome. We have a trampoline and play area which you are welcome to use but please be aware that if wet they may be slippery.

There is an additional one off charge of £15 per pet. Please pay us directly as it is not possible to pay via Airbnb. We have provided a large dog cage and a dog bed. There is a stair gate to ensure pets don’t go upstairs and a tap outside behind the barn for washing dogs. A Welly washer is provided for cleaning muddy boots. We ask guests not to wash their dogs inside the barn and you will need to bring your own towels for drying them.

We are aware of how important it is to provide thorough hygienic anti bacterial cleaning between lets and this has been upgraded to take account of Covid. We have adopted the Airbnb cleaning protocol for increased safety and allow a minimum of 24 hours between lets.

I am a retired stock broker and my wife and I redeveloped our 300 year old farmhouse in 2005 having moved from a larger holding nearby. We built the barn then so we could be close to the renovation work. Later at different times our two children lived in the barn before they moved on. This gave my wife the opportunity to indulge her hobby of interior decoration which provided her with a grown up dolls house! My daughter and I persuaded her to make it an Airbnb and somewhat reluctantly she agreed but now is more than happy to see others enjoying her creation.
