Tucked away behind the owner’s house in a very private location on the edge of the walled village of Bathford, this former dairy has been skilfully converted to a high standard, creating an exceptionally attractive space.

From the unusual approach via an ancient, narrow path and through an archway to a ‘secret’ patio, to the many original features of the building which dates from the early 17th century, Old Dairy Barn exudes character and style. There’s an impressive, beamed open-plan living room with inglenook on the ground floor and inspirational views across the valley towards the city from the main bedroom’s picture window upstairs.

Old Dairy Barn has been graded 4 stars, Gold Award by Visit England.
