The private garden has hardwood garden furniture, and a Weber gas barbecue (gas provided) in summer. The oak and granite kitchen area is well equipped, a range cooker with gas hob and electric oven, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, Dualit toaster, washing machine and tumble dryer. The sitting area has comfortable sofas to relax into. Flint has Wifi which is fine for emailing and searching the web. It also has exclusive use cinema room (accessed via external staircase). The cottage is dog friendly. There is a games room and in the summer an outdoor heated pool.

This beautifully restored old building has high vaulted ceilings, exposed stonework, red brick arches and old oak beams in abundance as well as an original sloping wall that has been carefully retained. The three bedrooms are all carpeted and en-suite, two having wet-room style showers and one having a shower over a bath. All the bedrooms can be configured as 6ft doubles or 3ft twin bedrooms. The Flint Barn has exclusive use of the nearby cinema room with a 42″ screen and surround sound, (accessed via external staircase).

The well-equipped oak and granite kitchen includes a 90cm stainless steel Britannia range cooker and large fridge/freezer. There is an oak dining table and chairs and comfy sofas to relax into as you watch the large flat screen TV. In winter the underfloor heating and wood burning stove (logs provided) will keep you cosy and in summer the slate floors in the kitchen, sitting room and dining area will help keep you cool.


The large private garden and terrace has a wonderful view of an unspoilt valley and is not overlooked by the other barns. The west facing Flint Barn benefits from the very best of the setting sun in the evenings. On the terrace there is ample hardwood furniture, and in summer a Weber gas barbeque is provided and gas is included. We can provide cots (not bed linen), high chairs (two types) and stair-gates.


Whilst the Flint Barn is a single storey building, there are a few steps as it has been built on a slope. The main part of the cottage, the kitchen/dining/sitting, entrance, parking, one bedroom and wet room are all on the same level. To access the two remaining en-suite bedrooms there is a short staircase of five steps. To access the cinema room there is s full length external staircase. See floor plans for full layout.
