The owners of The Granary operate a carpentry workshop in the farm buildings next door; there may be minimal noise on weekdays from machinery but the owners can control this if it’s intrusive at all – you simply need to say!
There are two ground floor bedrooms and a shower room so the house is well suited for guests with a mobility problem. There are double doors from the courtyard into the kitchen/dining room, however, the opening into the living room is two foot wide and all other doors are standard width so probably wouldn't be accessible for wheelchairs. There's also a lip to the shower cubicle.
PLEASE NOTE if you're benefitting from a 'low occupancy' discount for two guests both ground floor bedrooms will be out of use. If you'd prefer to use a different room please give us a call and we'll check with the owners but the property is great for a couple as the stairs rise from the kitchen/dining area to the master bedroom with bathroom and dressing area.
