For those seeking an extra touch of indulgence, hot tub hire is available at an additional cost, allowing you to enhance your relaxation and pampering during your stay.

Step outside to discover the enclosed private south-facing garden adorned with an artificial lawn, a patio, garden furniture, and a hot tub. The garden overlooks fields often grazed by sheep, creating an idyllic backdrop for relaxation. A barbecue stand is provided for disposable barbecues, which guests can procure and dispose of themselves.

Your stay at Ash Barn is made even more comfortable with the inclusion of bed linen and towels, central heating (oil), electricity, WiFi, and logs for the wood burner during the appropriate season.
