Thatching the farmhouse

We have overspent on The Linhay in the best “Grand Designs” manner and unfortunately have had to postpone thatching the main house.  Apologies if this disappoints anyone but hopefully the quality of The Linhay will more than “make up” for it.    November and December are now available for weddings this year.

NEW FOR 2017!

We are currently converting a third barn to become “The Linhay” which will contain a stunning new self contained bridal suite with two make up stations.  There will also be two more ground floor bedrooms with en suites.  We anticipate The Linhay will be completed by Christmas.

What's been happening

30th March 2015 – 19th century card shed restored after roof blew off – available again for photos!

15th June 2015 – restoration of 18th century granary complete – cob walls, thatched roof and our own green oak frame.  Christened “The Acorn Barn” and available for us for wedding ceremonies, honeymoon suite or otherwise useful space.  (Can seat up to 70)

22nd September 2015 – restoration commenced of Linhay building next to road.  Green oak and Douglas fir frame with Delabole slate roof to match The Oak Barn.  Walls and roof only so far – will be completed for 2017 season and will provide further accommodation and the most splendid of honeymoon suites.  Watch this space!

The new under-gardener! – from January 2016 John will no longer be a planning consultant but will take up the new position of full time under gardener and handy person.  He will be working to complete the conversion of The Linhay, improve the gardens and carry out nature conservation work around the farm.

October 2017-March 2018 – Please note we intend to close to weddings (but not viewings) to re-roof the house and carry out other improvements.  The house will be scaffolded to enable the re-slating of the roof in Delabole slate to match the adjoining barns and the whole building group will look rather splendid in 2018 when we re-open.

Book early for 2017 – we expect to be fully booked in 2017 so book early to avoid disappointment!
