Our converted listed barn with a huge (35 x 18ft) living room, lofty vaulted ceiling, masses of oak beams, substantial log-burning stove and adjoining raised dining area floored with terracotta tiles and inlaid oak. Comprehensively equipped country style kitchen with granite worktops, dishwasher and washing machine. Pimpernel has two bedrooms and spaciously sleeps 4 adults.

From the living area you can access the beamed master bedroom with king-sized 4 poster bed and en-suite shower room, and the oak furnished twin room which has patio doors leading onto a terrace overlooking the tennis court and woodland, with an eco-friendly wood-fired hot tub beneath a wisteria-hung pergola. From the dining area a floor-to-ceiling oak and glass door opens onto another garden terrace, and through another door you will find the kitchen and the main bathroom, which has limestone tiling, a super-sized Jacuzzi bath and separate walk-in shower cubicle.



The sizeable reception room in Pimpernel makes it an ideal venue for any occasion. Kitchen has electric oven & ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer; in the lounge area is a 42” TV with Freeview and DVD player, and a large wood-burning stove to supplement the central heating and keep it toasty on the coldest evenings.   

Towels and linen are provided, along with all the basics like salt & pepper, tea & coffee, washing up liquid etc. Garden furniture and BBQs are available.

The hot tub (upgraded to an electronic one in 2021) overlooks the tennis court and is exclusively for Pimpernel's use.

Cots, high chairs and door gates can be provided on request at no extra cost. If you require a baby- or pet-sitter please contact us. A designated parking space is provided on the gravelled drive in front of the cottage with additional spaces available on grass outside the barn.
