Lower Collaton is an old traditional farmhouse dating back to the Domesday Book and before. We have retired from serious farming, but in the fields of our peaceful south facing valley are our small flock of Shetland, Jacob and Zwartble sheep, whilst chicken and ducks can be found in the yard. The Byre is a charming and comfortable converted cowshed and hayloft, retaining all its character and its ancient exposed scissor beams, which give the living area a wonderful feeling of how it used to be.

It has been inspected and graded 4* by the AA.There are beautiful south facing views from the upstairs living area. The entrance lobby with slate floor leads into a hallway, off which is a spacious double bedroom with built in wardrobe and dressing table.

It is en suite with its own bath (with shower attachment), bidet, basin and wc. A twin bedded room is down the corridor, also en suite with shower, basin and wc. This can be converted into a second double with zip and link mattresses.

Up the stairs the remainder of the Byre is open plan. The living area faces south with views of the fields and valley, and has an electric log-effect fireplace, comfy sofas and easy chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped, with eye level grill, dishwasher and separate access outside.

Between the kitchen and living area is an informal eating area, with an oak dining table and chairs. Oil fired central heating (free of charge), wood burning stove, TV, DVD, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine / tumble drier, dishwasher, carry cot, high chair and various other little gadgets. Bed linen and towels are included in the price.

Outside there is a parking area for two cars, a small lawn and a paved patio with seating. Barbeque is available for our guests. No dogs, please, but one is welcome in The Stables.

The Byre is available from May through to late September. Lettings are from Saturday to Saturday.
