Where we stayed

The Simple Things - - ESCAPE -

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.
