During your stay
The building was formerly the house and barn of our family farm. It has recently come back into our ownership after a gap of 20 years.
We have lovingly restored this 13th century building in a truly sympathetic way which has ensured that the buildings many original features have been preserved and in some cases enhanced.
A great deal of love, work and passion has been invested to produce a truly outstanding group of cottages.

The interior design and furnishings are the work of Kathryn. Together with her husband and brother they make up the partnership Tithe Barn Cottages.

Kathryn hosts the cottages and is the main contact for guests. She has undertaken a considerable change in career direction to make these truly wonderful cottages available for our guests.

Kathryns brother Ian runs the family farm and is always on hand to lend assistance while her husband Terry deals with the the accounts, marketting as well as being the on call handy person.
