The Barn has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms and spacious lounge and dining areas with the Wanws offering a further four bedrooms (three with showers). The farmhouse has a lovely lounge with inglenook fireplace and an eight seater table. Upstairs the master bedroom is en-suite with wonderful views down the valley. The second bedroom is a twin room (with room for a third bed) situated next to a family bathroom. Goat Cottage is a bungalow possessing a kingsize ensuite and lounge with sofabed, which makes an ideal space to escape to! The properties are a few yards apart either side of the swimming pool. Our price also includes heat / light, logs for woodburner and beds made up. We do ask guests to bring their own towels and there is a £ 200 security deposit payable on arrival and returned to guests within a week of departure assuming all is well.
Unfortunately, we are not able to return deposits or final payments unless we are able to re-sell the holiday in question. We do therefore suggest guests take out appropriate cancellation insurance.
We happily accept up to four well-behaved dogs; there may be a modest charge for extra cleaning at certain times of the year. Please note that due to our lovely location surrounded by farmland, fireworks and Chinese Lanterns are not permitted at Barlings Barn.
Barlings has always been as self-sufficient as possible but now Barlings goes greener still to lessen our carbon footprint whilst improving our service to our guests with:
Our 80kw biomass log boiler to provide all the heating and lashings of hot water (fuelled by our own wood from the forest).
All our buildings are well insulated so very cosy in winter and very pleasant in summer.
10 kW solar photovoltaic panels generating electricity.
Our swimming pool heated to fabulous 80 degrees plus, by the biomass boiler topped up by solar hot water heat.
Fresh, soft, pure filtered spring and borehole water sourced from deep inside the hillside – wonderful for the skin.
Pretty organic gardens stuffed with flowers and herbs in season.
Energy saving lighting everywhere.
