A luxurious 18th century barn conversion, The Coach House combines character with a contemporary finish. The ground floor comprises 3 bedrooms; a double, a twin and a bedroom with full size bunk beds. Each bedroom has its own thermostat for individual comfort, and quality mattresses aim to give a good night’s sleep. There are 2 bathrooms - the main bathroom has a shower and whirlpool bath for a relaxing jet massage, and an ensuite shower room for the master bedroom. There is a toilet in each. The downstairs is tiled in a natural limestone with under floor heating for a cosy feel.

The upper floor is an open plan lounge/ kitchen/ diner, with oak beams and stone walls, light and airy. A rustic oak laminate floor, and reclining leather suite add a contemporary feel. There is a flat screen digital TV and DVD player. Colour changing LED lights provide special mood lighting in the evenings.
