Where we stayed
Cruckbarn’s footprint is modest but cleverly set out to make the most of its space without feeling cramped.
A generous mezzanine forms the master bedroom, with a second double making it easy to accommodate couples, families or a small group of friends. Underfloor heating, a walk-in shower and a roll-top bath tick the luxury checklist, sustainably sourced by a ground-source heat pump and water bore hole.
But basic it is not. The interiors are confidently modern rustic – plenty of sheepskins, substantial oak tables and blasts of dark blue. There are lots of thoughtful touches – an LP player, a boxful of vintage records, a vast wood burner and, best of all, no TV.
