Tudor barn rooms

There is no easy way to explain the complicated and unusual Tudor barn layout so look at the barn layout illustration as well as the pictures that illustrate the main barn and adjoining cartlodge and the various rooms they contain.  The barn with adjoining cartlodge sleeps a maximum of 23 in comfortable beds (+ 2 travel cots + very occasionally camp beds) in 2 x doubles, 1 x small twin, 1 x single, 1 (the huge main barn area) x 16 in Tudor four posters, truckle beds and box beds all with super-comfy mattresses.

Heating in deepest winter: The cartlodge is underfloor heated and very cosy. The interconnecting barn has a roaring giant woodburner one end with unlimited fuel for day and night, and a primitive but effective daytime diesel heater. It is coir-matted throughout and 15 tog duvets and electric blankets make all beds very cosy in winter. However, during a very cold snap in deepest winter, waking up in the 16th century barn is not like waking up in a large 21st century centrally heated house! Woolly sweaters and sense of adventure are essential!

The completely separate, newly kitted out and centrally heated Old Brooder bunkhouse, 100m+ down the track sleeps 22 guests in five bedrooms.  Milden Hall farmhouse has three extra rooms sleeping 6+ as overflow to either the Tudor barn or the Old Brooder bunkhouse.
