Shortwood Barn is a standalone building with it's own garden and private path onto fields from which guests can roam freely. There is a huge sweeping hillside behind the property and from that connections to a number of footpaths. We provide walking routes on this site from straight out of the door. This is a beautiful area to wander about in with great views and pubs.

The barn is a very modern conversion; it runs on a constant temperature all year round 24/7 thanks to a ground source heat pump. It also has the capacity to recycle air (either warm or cold) and has underfloor heating downstairs and indivudual radiators.
In the summer we keep a small vegetable garden for the benefit of guests who want a 'soil to pan' experience.
