Polly’s Bower (Sleeps 2)
This is a romantic retreat that has been converted from a 300-year-old apple-crushing barn into a beautiful, contemporary open-plan hideaway for two. All the old peg beams and trusses have been restored sympathetically, retaining much of its original charm. On a sunny morning, you can enjoy breakfast on the patio outside, taking in the view of the orchard, or on a cold day curl up with a book on the settee in front of the log-burner (after a lovely hot soak in the big freestanding bath upstairs!). There is an additional shower, beautifully fitted kitchen and inglenook dining area (where the apple press once stood) and a welcome hamper of local goodies greets you on arrival.
