A Grade II listed detached stone barn near Newnham-on-Severn is a superb August 2008 conversion. Approached by a country lane and standing on the edge of its own 6 acre meadow (leading to ancient woodland) it is ideal for walking, bird watching, spotting deer etc or simply relaxing to watch the trees grow. It was formerly used for animal housing and fodder storage. It is large and well appointed and can comfortably accommodate up to six adults (and a child) in three bedrooms. Two double bedrooms (with ensuite shower rooms) are situated on the upper level, each having its own dedicated staircase. A twin room and family bathroom complete the arrangements on the ground floor. The sitting room is situated in the centre of the barn in the full height threshing bay with a vaulted oak-beamed ceiling. Rural views can be enjoyed through large glazed doors front and back. The fully fitted kitchen boasts a large gas range cooker for family gathering and is adjacent to the dining area. Where possible, old features have been retained, and complemented by under-floor heating, a wood-burner and thoroughly modern appliances (dishwasher etc) throughout. FREE WI-FI for internet access.
