Life in rustic luxury.
Long Barn was converted in 2010, more contemporary in style than the Brick Barn and slightly bigger, although we have managed to use the rusty corrugated iron from the dung heap for the back wall of the dining table! Again the sense of space has been retained by keeping the living area to its full height, the upstairs is presented as a mezzanine. Downstairs has – as is traditional in these barns – a soft brick floor, though with underfloor heating. Upstairs flooring is laid with recycled oak floor boards from a 180 yr old Amish barn, also with underfloor heating.
This barn feels the biggest of them all, so it is no surprise that this is where they used to store the straw – which needed a big, open, well ventilated yet weather-proof barn. This was the threshing barn; the big noisy threshing machine, powered by an equally noisy steam powered traction engine (parked beneath the central sleeping loft), would knock out the grains from the ears of corn.
