Hareley Barn is a restored 16th Century Grade II listed barn, situated on a traditional rare breeds farm. It has panoramic views over an unspoilt rural landscape of woods, streams and pasture. The farm is a haven for wildlife where we rear rare breed sheep, pigs and poultry.
The Barn is spacious and comfortable, with a king-size bedroom and en suite bathroom which has one small step (apart from this access is level throughout) and twin-bedded room and separate bathroom with splash shower and spa bath. There is a woodburning stove in the living area, a separate kitchen and a laundry room.
The original stone walls, cattle stall and hayrack have been preserved and most of the Barn is open to the eaves. A fenced grass playground is available from April to October and the barbecue area
