Cherry Tree Barn is attached to the owner's house and access is through a shared gate at the rear of the property. The entrance hall on the ground floor is an ideal place for storing outdoor coats and shoes. At the top of the stairs, you'll find a packed bookcase with a whole range of adult and children's books and visitor attraction guides, as well as a sound system with radio.
The landing leads to the main accommodation; to the left is the kitchen, a compact open space tucked away in the eaves of this unusual property. Although taller guests may find the head height restrictive due to the sloping roof, the skylight above throws lots of light in and the kitchen itself boasts all the facilities and equipment you will need during your stay. And through skilful design, there is even a little side table and stools to sit at with your morning coffee while perusing the paper. Appliances include a freestanding fridge freezer, electric cooker with ceramic hobs, microwave, slow cooker, toaster and kettle.
Back to the landing, you next reach the Master double bedroom; an intimate room with lots of natural light and a floor level window. Bedside tables and lamps are set either side of the bed and there is a large set of drawers and wardrobe to store all your belongings out of sight. Like all the rooms in this apartment, the sloping ceiling, latched door and stained exposed beams enhance the character of this traditional property.
Across the landing from the bedroom is the shower room; again modest in size but it is lovely and warm with a large corner shower enclosure. The owner has also rather thoughtfully housed a washing machine in here, which may seem unusual at first glance but it is sure to come is useful, especially for longer stays or if you're travelling with children.
At the end of the landing, the first thing that strikes you as you walk into the lounge is the incredible view out over the bordering fields towards the Pennines beyond. A comfortable sofa and armchair set around the gas-effect stove offers a place to relax, while the dining table provides a more spacious place to sit with a meal. There is also a flat-screen TV and DVD player, Sky TV and a drawer packed full of games and puzzles for visitors to enjoy.
The second smaller twin bedroom can be accessed via a sliding door from the lounge. With bedside tables, a combi wardrobe and petite dressing area make great use of the modest space.
Outside, the front door opens onto a communal patio area where the owner has provided tables and chairs for guests to enjoy outdoor dining during the summer months. Visitors are encouraged to enjoy the owner's garden and make use of the washing line and sun loungers during your stay. The property has ample off-street parking and unloading is possible in front of the gates at the main entrance. Bike storage is also available on request.
