Nestled within the peaceful hamlet of Abcott and set in the grounds of a listed manor house, this beautifully restored red brick barn is the perfect romantic hideaway. The elegant, single-storey accommodation sleeps two and enjoys far-reaching views to the stunning backdrop of Long Mynd beyond an orchard of mature fruit trees. Soak up the sights of the rolling hills and panoramic scenery whilst making breakfast, warming by the fire or enjoying a cosy lie-in.
The building is steeped in history and the sympathetic and contemporary conversion retains many authentic features, such as a large front doorway. Open it wide and enter a stylish, yet simultaneously charming world of open plan living where everything you need is within easy reach.
The neutral décor showcases stripped wooden miscellanies from the original structure, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, red brick detail and gorgeous white-washed stone walls. The spacious living area cleverly incorporates a streamlined kitchen with a breakfast bar and an inviting lounge area with a wood-burner to snuggle around on colder nights. It is the perfect place to relax following a day exploring the local sights. Stoke up the wood burner, make a brew and curl up with a book or enjoy a film on the TV. French doors frame the view. Fling them wide and enjoy the sparkling sunshine in the warmer months too.
For a simple supper the breakfast bar is just perfect for two and the kitchen is well-equipped with an electric oven and induction hob, a handy microwave, toaster, a fridge with an ice compartment (champagne anyone?) a dishwasher and a washing-machine for the inevitable muddy clothes following your outdoor adventures.
When the day is done take a few steps up to where you will find a Victorian style king-size bed and another set of French doors looking onto the gardens and beyond. The adjacent shower room is large with exposed brickwork, a walk-in rainforest shower, a handy Scandinavian-type ladder shelving unit and a delightful vintage-style toilet.
Both sets of French doors open onto an enclosed garden which is the perfect place to enjoy afternoon tea or talk to neighbouring the sheep. There is also allocated parking for two cars.
