The Barn at Ivy Grange Farm

Exciting times as The Barn begins to take shape.  The solar pv panels are now installed on the roof, with the batteries and electric vehicle charging point being installed in the next couple of weeks, ensuring that we can offer holidays with a low carbon footprint.  And fun, too, with the arrival of the two new electric bikes - we've felt compelled to test them of course, and can confirm that they are great fun - we very much hope you'll enjoy trying them out!  All the internal walls are up in the barn, with additional stud-walling around the external walls to include an extra layer of insulation (using recycled plastic bottles) to ensure a warm and cosy space throughout the year.  The wood-burner man is coming in a couple of weeks to measure up, and the bathrooms and kitchen are all beginning to take shape.  Outside, the safari kitchen has been stripped back, with the aim of creating an undercover space for eating outside and the ground is being prepared for the arrival of "self-binding gravel" to create a great space for outside entertaining.  Old friends, such as the pizza oven and woodland showers, remain of course!  We can't wait to welcome you here!
