We're Open!

Our first guests arrived today (25th April) and we cracked open the Champagne.  The last few months have been fantastic - seeing the Barn take shape under the craftsmanship of our local artisan builder has been amazing.  Why not give us a try and see what you think?

The Barn is Open!

We've been busy all winter and spring with the Barn conversion and are delighted that it's all now done, and looking splendid, thanks to the talents of our local artisan builder, who brought a lot of creativity and energy to the project.  Come and see what you think!

We're Open

We're now open for business with the converted Barn, having welcomed our first guests today (25th April).  We've had a fun time putting in the work on the Barn and are delighted to have had the skills of an amazing local artisan builder, who has brought a huge amount of creativity to the project.  Take a look at the photos, give us a call if you have any questions (07802 456087) and remember to tell your friends - you'd be amazed how effective enthusiastic word-of-mouth is for bookings, and we always really appreciate it when a booking pops up with "word of mouth" as the source!

The floor is down...

Work is progressing well, with the flooring and underfloor heating in place, the plastering done, the wood-burning stove arriving shortly and the electrics very nearly finished  All the walls have good layers of insulation (recycled plastic bottles which saves them from ending up in the oceans, as well as keeping everything super-snug).  The range cooker is on order and the dishwasher and washing machine have arrived.

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!

Inspiration for our new barns....

Our plans are moving ahead for converting our barn into two self-contained holiday lets, to operate from Easter 2022.  We'll share photos here as work progresses but in the meantime, here's a photo of the pergola that our lovely local builder has created for us in our garden.  He's a very creative and thoughtful builder with a great eye for detail and we're very much looking forward to working with him on the interiors.

Covid19 and 2021...

We too are looking at 2021, unsure of what it will bring! We are currently looking forward to welcoming guests from 12th April (in line with Covid-19 guidelines, on a self-catering basis, with one family only at a time). From 17th May we will be opening for more guests at a time but will aim to keep numbers on site limited so that everyone feels safe, with plenty of space. .

Mists, mellow fruitfulness and gorgeous dark skies!

We've entered the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness and things are looking wonderfully autumnal, with the trees changing colour and the scent of woodsmoke in the air.  We're open through November and are very much enjoying seeing our guests appreciate the autumn season with campfires going and smoke puffing from wood-burners as dusk settles.
