Well-equipped with two eye level electric ovens and hob, microwave, large fridge/freezer with ice maker and dishwasher. The utility room with WC and washing machine is also on this floor, and when the sun sets and it’s time to rest you will find a twin bedroom on this floor too. Follow the main staircase where you will find two bedrooms with high quality beds throughout the property, one super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request) with en-suite shower over bath and WC and one king-size with en-suite bathroom with shower and WC. Follow the smaller staircase at the opposite end of the barn where you will find one double and en-suite bathroom with stylish slipper bath, separate shower and WC.

Take a step outside and enjoy the sunrise across the countryside, the landscaped grounds with large patio area is great for entertaining with table, chairs and BBQ.  And for summer evenings watching the stars follow the steps down to the snug carved into the hillside and enjoy the warmth of the kadai fire pit with all of the accompanyments.

An ideal barn conversion. We were a family of 8 of various ages. There was something for us all and lots of space to relax in, however we all seemed to end up in the one room! The garden was ideal with space and some good planting. Particularly liked the fresh herbs just by the back door.

Excellent modern barn conversion. We spent an excellent week here and would recommend it thouroughly. Shame we couldn't sit outside much and enjoy the scenery due to the October weather. Ludlow is a great town with excellent pubs and places to eat. But as the barn was so lovely we decided to eat in most nights and enjoy just being there.
