Long Barn is a place of memories. Those made and those still to come. The conversion of the 19th-century threshing barn and its adjoining sister has left the original arch intact while elsewhere, from the broad expanse of garden (once a field) to the hay bales left for playing on, you find reminders of its agrarian past. A recent transformation has turned the place into an adventure waiting to happen. Cathedral ceilings tower up containing mezzanine bedrooms, two twin/doubles and one double, in the eaves. Downstairs, the enormous space is softened by vintage trunks and chests, Laura Ashley throws, a glowing wood-burner and furniture made by the owner’s father-in-law, while the kitchen is kitted out with big hand-crafted oak worktops, an induction range and a super-cool American fridge. There are vegetable beds you can forage in and a superb catering service should you not fancy cooking. As for the kids – they can collect eggs from the chickens, ride bikes and, best of all, sneak up into the attic sleeping pod via an external ladder. There are three more barns coming in May. Fabulous.
