Barn | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Barncastle originally was a cattle barn used by my grandfather and later by my father to house our cows and calves, tractors and farm implements. Planning permission was granted to convert the old barn and work began approximately 20 years ago.
Barncastle was completed in December 2005 and our first visitors arrived on the 28th of that month celebrating their New Year.
Barncastle has 4 double bedrooms and a twin bedroom, 4 bathrooms, large dining room, lounge and fully equipped kitchen with table and chairs.
We are committed to excellence by offering Barncastle as an outstanding self catering holiday accommodation. Barncastle has been assessed each year by VisitEngland for quality in tourism. Barncastle has continually been awarded a five star self catering award since 2006 and in 2012 sits comfortably within that category. 'It offers comfortable accommodation in a delightful environment.' Barncastle is committed to catering for the needs of families and has been approved by VisitEngland after meeting the criteria for the 'Families Welcome Scheme'. Barncastle is eligible to receive a Gold Award and achieved this in 2012 for exceptional quality of accommodation and customer service.
The unique selling points of Barn castle are...
• The stunning tranquil surroundings in which it is set.
• The views of those surroundings from the property.
• The high standard to which the barn has been converted with oak flooring and beams on show throughout the property.
• The large communal areas and garden for entertaining.
• The accessibility for local events and entertainment.
• The high standard of furnishings and content of the property.
• The friendly and informative owners.
