Set within 22 acres of privately owned pasture land, Broad Downs Barn forms part of Broad Downs Farm dating from c1860 and consisting of the original farmhouse, stables, barn and piggery. Approached by its own private lane, the barn has been converted to the highest of standards whilst maintaining its original exterior integrity. 

Internally it provides spacious, luxury modern family holiday accommodation, contemporary design and technical specification, and is serviced by the latest 'Green' technology.  The barn also enjoys shared use of a delightful outdoor heated swimming pool set in an original walled garden.

N.B. Reduced rates now available for parties or 8 or fewer (using 4 bedrooms only) outside of 'High' Season
