4 Bed Accommodation
Built in 1948 on the site of an old thatched barn where the draft horses’ harnesses were stored on the first floor overnight, George Barn was designed to hold implements , tractors, potatoes and apples on the ground floor and bulk grain on the first floor.
This use did not last much beyond the 1950’s and more recently it served as an office and motorcycle workshop/store for 10 years or so before recently being converted into a wheelchair accessible unit for Michael.
Access to the ground floor is by either the 840mm wide side door or by opening the wider bi-fold doors in the front of the picture. In addition to the ground floor double bedroom with ensuite wet-room, up to 3 first ensuite double bedrooms can be made available offering flexible accommodation for 2, 4, 6 or 8 people (prices set accordingly).
Off-road parking for 3 cars. Accessed via private drive, the 300 year old colourful garden is on the other side of Blind Lane and there is a further safe amenity/exercise area for children.
The flexible lounge/kitchen/diner can accommodate up to 8 including a wheelchair. The electric armchair, settees and comfy carvers can allow all to enjoy a good book or watch your choice of program on the 50-inch Smart Colour TV (all Sky programs, Catch up, Recordings and BT Sport included). High speed WiFi.
Under-floor heating and warm & easy clean Kardean flooring add to your comfort.
Microwave & toaster are on the console behind the table. Dishwasher fridge /freezer, washing machine and drier can be seen to the right of the sink .
The adapted kitchen includes fan assisted electric oven tower with pull out shelf to help with transfer of pots and pans which are stored in the drawers below.
Induction hob and kitchen sink are incorporated in an electric table that can accommodate wheelchair users and be adjusted to suit your height.
Beyond the kitchen is the ground floor double bedroom with ensuite wet-room and electric profiling double bed. There is plenty of storage space in the wardrobe and chest of drawers and room to manoeuvre a wheelchair. Light switches and emergency call system can all be operated from the bed, as can the 26” colour television with all Sky features.
Double action swing doors give easy access to the ensuite wetroom (also accessible from the kitchen). Wall mounted shower seat (shower wheelchair also available) and comfort height toilet both have drop down bars for easy safe access. In the corner immediately beyond the shower seat is a two speed body drier to help you to dry yourself quickly. Wall mounted vertical bars for support are provided alongside the basins and body drier.
We do not allow any smoking inside the cottages and as allergy suffers we also do not allow pets with the exception of Guide Dogs who are welcome, but please note that we do make a small additional cleaning charge.
