Our comfortable Barn is furnished to a very high standard and is situated close to the main house in nine acres of grounds and within walking distance to two idyllic country villages both of which have excellent dog friendly pubs. The Barn is ideally placed for a quiet, relaxing location. The surrounding area is renowned for its natural beauty and hence is a perfect position to enjoy many stunning walks and bike rides. The picturesque Kennet and Avon canal is only 200 metres away.
The ground floor of the Barn has a large open plan living area which includes a very well equipped kitchen and comfortable seating area with Sky TV, DVD player and a great all round sound system. It has a separate eight seater dining table.
Upstairs there is a spacious double bedroom with a King sized bed and an adjoining twin bedded room through which the shower and WC are accessed. The large bedroom includes a comfortable seating area with a lovely view over the fields as well as a working desk. Both bedrooms have chests of drawers and hanging space.
OUTDOORS & PARKING
You will have access to the garden with a table and 4 chairs and are welcome to walk through the field up to the woods adjoining our paddocks. The views from the top of the field are stunning and a lovely place to have a cup of tea or a glass of wine on a summer’s evening. We also have a children’s play area which includes a trampoline which may be used if children are supervised.
You will find a Welly washer by the outside tap to the rear of the barn for cleaning muddy boots opposite the outside loo.
We welcome up to two well behaved dogs but they are NOT allowed upstairs or on the sofas. Stair gates and a large cage are provided.
We live in an excellent walking area and will recommend many local walks.
For further information about bringing dogs please see our rules section on the Air BnB page prior to your booking.
Brail Barn is located in a beautiful village called Great Bedwyn, in the heart of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Kennet & Avon Canal runs within a few hundred yards of Brail Barn and provides excellent walking, linking Bedwyn to many other beautiful locations.
Unsurprisingly, the area is renowned for its excellent walking, cycling and riding routes using the network of public footpaths, bridleways and byways. For details of walks, go to the Visit Pewsey Vale website.
Brail Barn is close to Wilton Windmill, the oldest working windmill in Wessex, and Crofton Beam Engines, where the oldest Boulton & Watt steam engine in the world still works today and can be seen in action on steaming days. The Vale of Pewsey has two White Horses – one in Pewsey and one in Alton Barnes. The Crop Circle & Exhibition Centre at Honeystreet is also worth a visit.
The towns of Hungerford and Marlborough are both close by and provide stylish shopping and a full range of services.
There are two excellent pubs nearby – The Three Tuns Freehouse in Great Bedwyn and The Swan Inn in Wilton – both are dog friendly and offer local beers and ciders, as well as good food.
