Superb, barn that can accommodate larger parties in true comfort, spacious living rooms and generous en-suite bedrooms, nearly 500 listed buildings nearby.

This superb, detached barn conversion is one of those uniquely rare properties that can accommodate the larger of family parties in true comfort and style! Its spacious living rooms, generous en-suite bedrooms (some of which suit partially handicapped guests), and wealth of extra facilities will delight guests, and the property retains many character beams, with fine joinery and decor.

    Perfect for a large family get together - we stayed in joint celebration of a milestone 60th birthday for my husband and our twin daughters' birthdays. Halfords Big Barn ticked all our boxes, with plenty of room for all, we never felt "cramped" or "squashed" and were especially impressed with the huge dining room table and sufficient chairs (and room) for all. Well equipped, very homely and comfortable. Yes, there were a few cobwebs and not every surface was spotlessly clean, but overall we were more than satisfied with our stay and had a fabulous time.

    Whilst the property was everything we wanted, I was very upset that the owner let herself into the property when we were out and was snooping around. This did stop when I complained to the husband but it slightly soured the whole experience.

    We had a excellent week. The cottage was a ideal size. It’s definitely a property where a large group can spread out.

    We booked the Halford Big Barn for an 80th birthday with friends and family. The house was in a great location, was certainly big enough for 11 adults and 5 children. It was safe enough for the children to play outside and explore.

    Halford Big Barn had an ideal layout, for our family one of my son,s, wife & 2 children used one wing & the other son & wife with 2 older children Used the other wing, as they had their own staircase, they didn,t disturb each other with their differing routines. My husband & my other son had the 2 downstairs rooms, both en-suit. There was ample space for us to be all together or be on our own. Ample comfortable seating. Some bedside lights were without builbs & some were positioned without a power point, but it was all managable. Well equipped to wash & dry clothes. Plenty of crockery etc. Books, toys & Piano too. A few curtain hooks could be replaced. Well equipped kitchen.
