This exceptional brick built detached barn retains many of its original features and offers superb accommodation for two people.

This exceptional detached barn conversion has retained the character of the building and boasts exposed beams in many of the rooms. It has been stylishly furnished to a high standard and is a lovely, romantic hideaway for a couple. The accommodation is all on ground level with a modern, well equipped fitted kitchen on open plan with a dining area and sitting room with a contemporary plasma fire making it a cosy and welcoming space. The spacious bedroom has a calm and elegant atmosphere with an en-suite wet room, outside the barn is a lovely garden with a barbecue and furniture. There is a shop two miles away and a pub just a five minute walk from the property. A fabulous location for a romantic holiday.


After a long journey up, we were greeted by the very friendly Phillipa. She happily showed us around the retreat and had made sure there was some delicious cake and tea ready. Fresh eggs from the local chickens were greatly appreciated for breakfast too. The cottage is even nicer than it looks in the pictures with everything you could possibly want provided; every piece of kitchen equipment we could think of, tv, dvds, wifi, decent shower. The fire was lovely to warm up to of an evening and the bedding was amazingly soft for a great sleep after a busy day. The leaflets in the boxes were a great help when deciding where to cycle/walk/explore and this spot was a great base, with just a short drive to everywhere we visited.

The whole break was excellent. A wonderful cottage to stay in and the owner was very helpful. If you want to stay in a place to forget what's going on, this is the place to stay.
Mr Cole

The friendliness of the owners made us feel very welcome and The Retreat was beautiful and in a good location for enjoying peace and quiet.
Mrs Thompson

We loved the welcome we received as well as the beautiful place we stayed in. It felt like home from home but with the peace and quiet we needed.
Mrs Richardson

Great accommodation, even nicer than the images. The owner was friendly, informative and very helpful. Would recommend to all family and friends looking for an ideal break. Plenty to do but also a great place to rest and relax.
