Potash Barns: Cart Lodge

About Cart Lodge Barn

The Cart Lodge stands on its own in the Potash Barns complex. We think it was originally built in the 18thC as extra storage for the farm. The original steep pitched roof may have been destroyed by fire and replaced with the present lower pitched roof some time in the 1960's. It would have been used to store a couple of carts.  As with all of Potash Barns, Cart Lodge has been converted to a very high standard. 

Without too much alteration, we have managed to provide two comfortable bedrooms, and a spacious lounge/dining area. 

The Bedrooms and Bathroom

Cart lodge sleeps up to 4 guests. It provides two spacious bedrooms. Bedroom one can be either a twin or a double bedroom. Bedroom two is a twin room.  Both bedrooms have their own wardrobe and chest of drawers, as well as bedside cabinets and are supplied with crisp white cotton linen as standard. Floors are beautiful elm floorboards, whilst lighting is ample, warm and subtle. 

The bathroom is equipped with both a walk-in shower (very useful for less mobile guests) and a deep Victorian bath with centre taps allowing for a luxuriating bath for two adults, or three children.

The Living Space and Kitchen area

The kitchen is again constructed in elm with lovely soft ash worktops. As we like cooking ourselves, we have tried to make the kitchens as well equipped and user friendly as possible, with good quality utensils. 

The star of the room is a Stoves six burner, double oven range cooker, accompanied by Dishwasher, Fridge, Freezer, and Washer/Drier. The kitchen is finished with beautiful double bowl ceramic sink, and terracotta floors. Food processor, double toasters, cafetiere and hard wearing porcelain are all standard.

Whilst many visitors do come in order to do no cooking at all, we like to point out that the kitchen is just as handy for a simple bit of toast or warming up that take-away in the Microwave.

All linen and utilities are included and also tea, coffee, tea towels, washing up liquid etc.

We welcome dogs in Cart Lodge with prior notice. £25 per dog per stay (max 2 large dogs/ 3 small)
