Foords Barn is the last building that remains on the site of an old village farmyard enclosed on three sides by well-preserved cob walls. The barn was used in the last century as a stable and a lot of the old features remain. The barn has been sympathetically converted into one-bedroom self-catering cottage accommodation.
Guests have the barn to themselves. The sitting room is simply furnished and features a wood burning stove, a billiard table and lime-washed cob walls and oak beams. Original double barn doors open out onto the lawn. Upstairs the one bedroom (one single and one double bed) enjoys a view of Broughton Down. In the kitchen the fridge is stocked with fresh eggs from the hens pecking around outside.
During your stay you may make use of the peaceful garden. Behind the old apple tree a door in the wall opens onto the traditional village playing field known as Fripp's Acre. It is a short walk from here to the foot of the Broughton Down, home to rare butterflies and bronze age tumuli. A track, part of the Clarendon Way, leads up to the old Roman road.
