The barn is a ground-floor property with the additional benefit of a mezzanine area which is ideal for children to enjoy their own space. The living area runs the length of the building, with solid oak flooring, pillars and rafters. Underfloor heating and a real-flame fire warms the space beautifully.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all the appliances you could need, and well supplied with cutlery and crockery.
Bedroom 1 (which also has an en-suite bathroom), has a king-sized bed and room for a cot. Bedrooms 2 (double) & 3 (twin) both have good hanging cupboard space, and share a bathroom.
There is a large mezzanine above the main living area, and this is equipped with a large TV, DVD, Wii and also a table football. It also has a sofabed which is suitable for occasional use, although cannot be described as a bedroom. We use 400 thread Egyptian cotton bed linen throughout the house. 5* hotel-quality house towels are also supplied. Please provide your own towels for swimming at the Artspa (or they can be hired at the Spa for a small fee).

Around Lower Mill Estate:
Three sets of sliding doors open out onto a full length, enclosed deck, which overlooks a pond and the river at the back of the house. A swan family have based themselves in this stretch of the river and can often be seen on the bank - and occasionally even peek through the kitchen window to see what you are doing! The deck is fully equipped for outdoor dining, and features a gas-fired barbeque. Don't worry - the swans can't get to your sausages!
