Tastefully converted in 2011, The Barn holiday cottage is a small stone barn providing comfortable and cosy accommodation for two people on our seventeen acre small farm. The cottage comprises a comfortable double bedroom, luxury shower room, well equipped kitchenette with electric hob, oven, fridge and washer/dryer. There is also a sunny lounge (with TV/DVD player) and a south-west facing sun terrace where you can enjoy a glass of wine in the evening sun.
Barrow Farm is situated in the picturesque village of Rode which is nine miles south-east of Bath and fifteen minutes drive from Longleat. National Trust properties such as Stourhead and Dyrham Park are also a half hour drive away as well as many other visitor attractions.
Our lovely stone built farm nestles in the Frome river valley where we have our own free-range hens and a small flock of Wiltshire Horn sheep. We also run a very small scale PYO and a 5 van Caravan Club CL site. There are numerous pretty walks on the doorstep including the long distance Macmillan footpath and for cyclists lots of country lanes and also the Wiltshire Cycle Way. Rode itself hs two good eating pubs all within walking distance and also has a regular bus service into Frome, Trowbridge and Chippenham. There is a bus service into Bath but not as regular.
As well as two eating pubs within walking distance there is also a Post Office which sells newspapers and general stores. There is also a lovely café within the post office/shop. Other local towns nearby include Frome, an historic market town and the very picturesque Bradford on Avon with the Kennet and Avon canal to walk or cycle along. Beautiful Bath is only nine miles away and Wells and Glastonbury about fourty minutes away as well as many other places to visit and enjoy.
ACCESS STATEMENT: The Barn cottage is sited on our small farm and is therefore in a rural setting. We have a flock of sheep on the farm and free range hens. The farm and cottage are surrounded by some undulating ground. The front of the cottage has a gravel surface and the back of the cottage has a terrace with paving stones. There is a small step up into the front door of the cottage and there is a threshold step down from the french windows onto the terrace area.
Inside the cottage the kitchen, living area and shower room/toilet are all on one level. There is a standard step down in to the bedroom.
The cottage does not have disabled facilities or hand rails.
