The wheelchair accessible property enjoys 20 metres of double glazed windows that provide a luscious panorama across the croquet lawn and surrounding flower and shrub beds, with 400+ apple trees in the orchard below and open fields for miles beyond; it is everyone’s favourite aspect. The accommodation has its own access road and disabled access parking with separate entrance so you can come and go as you wish. There is also a wheelchair-friendly wet room. The property is equipped with a sustainable air source heat pump underfloor heating system that provides a comfortable ambience.

Outside, there is a large gravel patio including garden table and chairs for up to 10+ guests. The propane BBQ is great for summer al fresco dining and there is a fire pit for relaxing on chilly evenings.

You have use of the lawn area that is great for a game of croquet. The shrub and flower border progresses from early daffodils to lilacs in June and lavender in the summer and autumn. Beyond the dry stone wall and gate, you can take a stroll through the lower apple orchard and have a picnic by the stream in the valley. If you wish, you can also help feed the resident chickens and ducks, and enjoy their eggs in the top orchard on the other side of the Longbarn. If you visit in May – June you will be delighted by apple blossom. From mid August to late October, you can enjoy picking and eating sweet juicy apples direct from the tree.
