The Potash Barns complex consists of three self-contained holiday homes finished to a high standard and rated as a 4 star by the English Tourist Board each year. All barns are fully equipped with modern appliances, excellent range cookers and very comfortable furnishings. Each home sleeps 4 people comfortably and can adequately stretch to 6 people with the use of sofa beds, or cots for babies.
The original was divided into Goat Willow Barn at one end, and Old Oak Barn at the other. In between there is a Communal Hall, with a large woodburner in the fireplace. It retains the feel of the barn's original threshing floor. Ideal for large parties. When Old Oak, Goat Willow and Cart Lodge are rented out together there is space for 16 to dine, which is great for family get togethers.
To the north across the farmyard, the barn is faced by The Cart Lodge. This building was completely renovated, and provides very comfortable, single story accommodation, ideal for less mobile guests. Again this can sleep up to 6 people.
The layout of the complex allows for both individual privacy, but also the space to mingle with others, and has proved to be perfect for large group bookings, or families who have taken all three homes as a block booking on many occasions.
Outside, the farmyard is kept clear of vehicles to allow children to play or cycle in safety. We have a play area where we have a netted trampoline, football goal, swings etc. We also have a separate games room with table tennis, table football, darts and a pool table. A few bikes are usually available, boule set and cricket set to borrow.
We have expanded on the animal front too as they are always a hit with our guests. Our pets include a pony called Moonie, pygmy goats, chickens, lambs and geese. All our animals are fenced in for safety but we always encourage our guests to help feed our animals and collect eggs when supervised. They are all friendly and are an invaluable treat for children!
We have travel cots and high chairs available free of charge and all barns have tea, coffee, sugar supplied along with tea towels, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid etc. We can provide meals on arrival to make the beginning of your stay easier. The cost obviously depends on what you request. Just ask.
