The place

Were you born in a barn? Chances are if you were, it didn’t look like this one. The Barn at North Lodge has a stately home feel, provided by the Georgian lodge it sits in the grounds of. On site, there’s views of the woods, with pheasants, roe deer and hare potentially romping around the red wood tree – in sight from the French doors of your barn. You can visit the chickens (guess where your eggs are from) or the guinea pigs in their enclosed area, and say hello to the two friendly border terriers who’ll likely see you to your place – but won’t carry baggage. There’s a barbeque just outside for those hazy summer evenings, and a chimenea to see the sunset down. If you spend the days taking your four-legged partner in crime round the many tracks and trails nearby, step into the monsoon shower or stretch out in the six foot bath and forget your own name, let alone your stresses.
