Perfect for a couple, this romantic bolthole offers a tranquil setting surrounded by countryside from which to explore the wider area.

Situated on a working farm in Cambridgeshire, close to the county borders of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, the Barn has been sympathetically restored and converted during 2020 into a beautiful and comfortable home. Enjoying a picturesque setting, surrounded by grass fields and countryside views from all aspects, perfect for Nature lovers will love the wonderful Hayley Nature Reserve and Waresley and Gransden Woods which is on your doorstep. Whilst adrenaline seekers should visit Cambridge Gliding Club which is a short drive away and will give you the chance to view Cambridgeshire countryside from the sky. The annual Little Gransden Air Show in the summer is fantastic and features classic planes, cars and the red arrows. The stunning University city of Cambridge is nearby, where you can explore by punt boat, visit the many museums, admire the architecture of college buildings and churches or enjoy some retail therapy and fine dining in the many independent shops and restaurants.

Arriving in the entrance lobby, you can take a seat on the church pew and kick off your walking boots and hang up your coats before entering further. The hallway leads off to the stylish and spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The person tasked with cooking will feel at home with the electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge / freezer and no need to worry about doing the dishes as a dishwasher is supplied. The lounge area with it’s tall ceiling and large floor to ceiling windows is airy and spacious yet feels super cosy with the comfortable sofa, the wood burner adds a warm welcome during the cooler seasons and Smart TV so you can relax, unwind and stream or watch your favourite shows. The dining table can seat up to four guests so if you do invite friends over for dinner there is plenty of room for you all to enjoy a meal and some conversation together. There is the convenience of a ground floor WC along with a utility room which has a washing machine for you to use. Heading up the stairs leads to a large double bedroom, with king size bed, boasting views across grass fields towards the farm, thers is a TV for you if you fancy catching the news before jumping out of bed ahead of another day of adventures. Completing the property is the en-suite shower and WC.

Outside there is a patio area with a table and chairs which overlooks the pond and really does provide the ideal setting and a lovely way to end the day watching the ducks with the sunset in the background.
