Barleycorn Cottage






Such a cosy cottage all year round with wood-burner, thick walls, high airy ceilings, deep slate sills and massive oak beams throughout.

It  has a large double bedroom and a spacious twin bedroom so plenty of room for a cot or zed bed if needed.


Sitting/dining room


It's open-plan from the kitchen to the comfy sitting room, where the cast-iron wood-burning stove and relaxing sofa and armchairs make for cosy evenings, if you're not in the garden.

Barleycorn Cottage sleeps 2-4 people.    It's the tall part to the right, and part of the old mill building - the mill house is to the left.

A light, airy & modern kitchen with an original grindstone in the floor and deep slate window sills.

The shared gardens and lawns in summer


For alfresco meals, there's a cafe table and chairs in the sunken part of the fully-fenced garden, formerly the mill pond, with views down the wooded leat and up over the fields. In spring, it's full of snowdrops, bluebells and pink campions.
