The property

The outside of the property boasts a parking space along with courtyard area, perfect for dusting off after a long day exploring.

Entering the barn, you will be greeted by a cosy living/dining room, showcasing an exposed stone feature wall and up-cycled furniture, adding a touch of charm and character.

The living area is the perfect room for family time with TV entertainment and a crackling log burner for those brisk winter's evenings.

The light and bright bathroom features a bath, shower over, WC and basin.

A small set of steps lead you down to the first bedroom, decorated wonderfully and boasting a double bed.

Upstairs on the mezzanine level, separated by a curtain, you'll find the second bedroom with twin single beds, perfect for the children.

The nearby village of Leintwardine is full of character and boasts an award-winning fish and chip shop (it has just won (Autumn 2019) Chip Shop of the Midlands and reached the top 20 Nationally!) as well as a pub next to the quaint river and a handy general store.
