Ginny's Barn is a detached brick barn conversion, on the owner’s mixed livestock and arable farm, at the edge of the small rural Nottinghamshire village of Askham. This well-equipped, spacious single-storey cottage offers open plan living areas, with traditional country furnishings, natural slate flooring with underfloor heating, exposed oak cross beams and a stable-style door. There is a grassed area to the front of the property, along with a slightly raised sitting area with table and chairs. The three towers of Lincoln Cathedral can be seen on the horizon from the bedroom window and garden. A short walk into the village finds the local public house, also serving meals. There are 2.5 miles of bridleway on the farm for riding or walking, a stable is available together with separate 1-acre paddock, and there are many local lanes for a relaxing stroll. Sherwood Forest visitor centre and several National Trust properties, including Clumber Park, are within 15 miles.
