About this property

Converted Barn with Private Heated Pool. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

A stunning 300 year old granite barn converted over the last few years to provide modern quality accommodation with features in keeping with the building.
 
Outside provides landscaped gardens to sit or play, a large private heated pool to splash around in or improve your fitness. There are 2 bbq areas and all this with great views of the nearby St Sever forest. The rear decking is 10 metres long and has a fixed roof to provide protection from all types of weather, with an outside lounge and another dining table to eat "al fresco" or enjoy a drink as the sun goes down on this side of the house.
 
Once inside you will find quality furnishing and fittings throughout and plenty to keep everyone occupied, including a gamesroom with English full size slate pool table.

There are two medium sized bathrooms, both with showers, one with an additional bath. The washing machine lives at the far end of the house to avoid noise disturbance.
