Enjoying unencumbered views across the countryside, this single storey converted barn with a contemporary twist is perfect for those wanting to experience the beauty of Herefordshire.

The small hamlet of Eye sits within the Herefordshire countryside close to the Shropshire and Welsh borders, an area that is steeped in history, within walking distance of the National Trust Berrington Hall and just 5 miles from Croft Castle. A well-trodden footpath will take you into Luston where you can enjoy food at the local pub. Nearby is the vibrant market town of Leominster renowned for its local antique and curiosity shops, and a short drive leads you to the cathedral city of Hereford. Just over the border is the market town of Ludlow with its medieval castle and its bustling farmers’ market and food-centre bursting with local produce. Further afield is The Elan Valley, Offa’s Dyke, and The Black Mountains.

We are delighted to welcome this beautiful barn into our exclusive Joules Collection. You'll find the brand's signature style throughout the property, particularly in one of the bedrooms which features sumptuously soft Joules bedding.

Take some time to enjoy the views before you step down into a courtyard, landscaped with reclaimed wood and seasonal planting along with the cedar clad exterior which blends well into the surroundings. Step inside the hallway and enjoy the simple artwork of the local market towns and places of interest. The accommodation offers open-plan living within the original shell of a farm building, you can relax with friends in the cosy lounge in front of the wood burner. For dining, the round table and chairs are perfect for a hearty supper of local produce whilst you enjoy the views. The kitchen area will test the best of chefs, cool and contemporary with an induction hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher, and an island where you can keep the chef amongst you company. There is a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. So, when the day is done you will find the two bedrooms, a king-size with TV and another king-size enjoying countryside views. There is a bathroom with bath, separate walk in rain-water shower and WC. For additional storage there is also a cupboard in the hallway.

Outside the barn has been cleverly landscaped, to the rear you can enjoy uninterrupted views whilst you sit and dine. To the front is a courtyard with seating. There is ample off-road parking and bike storage available.
