Room Description


The West Wing is the main accommodation at The Red Barns. You arrive through one of the original chunky doors into the entrance hall, which in turn leads to either the living area or the spacious bedroom suite. All the rooms are decorated for calm, relaxation and simple luxury.

The main bedroom features a luxurious queen-size bed, comfortable armchair and plenty of storage. It has gorgeous views of the surrounding paddocks, trees and hills, which can be enjoyed from the daybed under the window. Adjoining the main bedroom is a sitting room, which has a DVD player, as well as another daybed. There is an option to convert this daybed to a single bed for an additional guest for a small additional charge.

The bathroom has underfloor heating, a walk-in tiled shower, claw-foot bath and large vanity.

The living area has a round-the-clock woodburner, comfortable quality leather furniture, a large dining table and breakfast unit, which houses a fridge and all the breakfast materials you’ll need for your stay.

Please note, as part of our escapism philosophy, there is no terrestrial or Sky TV, but there is a screen with DVD player and a Bluetooth-enabled music system/radio. Free wi-fi wireless internet access is usually available.
