A stunningly converted barn in a peaceful hamlet. Reclaimed wood galore, fantastically comfy beds, good breakfasts and a natural host

Set back from the lane is a newly converted and refurbished barn. Step in to find fine old proportions, heated oak floors and heaps of character. Louise's stunning living quarters spread under the beams and bedrooms lie privately below on the ground floor. One opens to the courtyard, and all are airy and peaceful with modern fabrics and cream walls. There's a sunny guest sitting room leading onto the garden, and delightful Louise, a great cook, serves breakfast at a long table by the wood-burner. You can walk through fields to the river or hills, stroll to the pub for supper – and alternative therapies can be arranged locally.

"Wow! What a find! The Cider barn is a sensitive conversion providing delightful, spacious accommodation. Tastefully decorated bedrooms, very comfy beds and fully functioning bathrooms! Residents have their own comfy sitting room, but can enjoy the open-plan upstairs, (Louise's space), at breakfastime. Louise is a natural host - we were very at-ease with her and enjoyed easy chat. The Cider Barn is in a superb location - in lovely rural countryside (very quiet), yet close to Wellington via well surfaced roads, and there's a great choice of pubs serving excellent food at reasonable prices."
