The Accommodation

We converted the house ourselves in 2007 – Garth did the building work and Lizzy designed the interiors. We wanted to create a house that reflected classical French country style, and that was a pleasure to stay in.

Living area

Downstairs, the property has a large open-plan living area. There is a fully-equipped American-style kitchen, with dishwasher, six-burner gas cooker, fan oven, microwave, fridge/freezer and coffee machine.

The dining area has a long antique pine table, which can seat 10 people comfortably for dinner.

The sitting area is fitted with three comfortable sofas, one of which folds out to make a bed (for those unexpected guests!).


The house has four bedrooms, three on the first floor, leading off a large central landing. The master bedroom has a double bed and en-suite shower room the double bedroom on the groundfloor is immediatly next door to the shower room.

The second bedroom has a double bed and a single bed. Finally, the children’s room has two single beds.

All the bedrooms are fitted with ceiling fans.


There are three bathrooms. Off the landing is a large bathroom fitted with a freestanding clawfoot bath complete with shower attachment.

As mentioned above, the master bedroom has an en suite shower room. And finally, downstairs off the living area you will find an open-plan shower room with level access.

Television, internet and games

There is a high-speed ASDL internet connection which can be accessed from any power point in the property.

Upstairs on the landing is a television with satellite channels and a games console – and a sofa to lounge on!

Terraces & boules court

On both sides of the living areas, French doors lead out onto private terraces.

The front terrace catches the morning sunlight, and is a good place to eat breakfast.

The back terrace looks out over countryside and a French boules court. There are some spectacular sunsets to be enjoyed from this vantage point!

Revise the rules of boules.

Games area

In the end of the barn is a large games area, with table tennis table and dartboard.

This area also provides covered parking and a utility room which houses a washing machine.
