There are half a dozen separate spaces to congregate, but still plenty of room for everyone to be together.
The big barn has a magnificent high timbered roof, and a gallery looking down over an open plan living area, with a stone chimney and wood burning stove. A baronial dining table for 20 stands on a warm flag stoned floor, under a chandelier.
Up on the gallery there are two sofas and two single chair beds making a cosy sitting area.
The open fronted terrace faces south, and provides an alternative sitting or eating area, complete with under-floor heating and another wood burning stove.
A big screen TV with Satellite including BT Sports, Sky Sports and Sky Films is concealed in an oak cupboard beside the fireplace.
Hi Fi together with an Ipod docking station is set in a massive bookcase, plus various games for children.
A Wi-Fi receiver allows for any number of lap-tops to connect. You will find this under the Network ‘Cats Abbey’. No password is required.
