Quern Barn was converted by the current owners in 2010, retaining  much of the original character and uncovering a “Quern stone” dating back to the 11th Century. The accommodation is cosy and of a premium standard, being consistently highly rated by over 200 guests and ranking it in the top 5 of over 600 cottages on the “managing agents” happiness survey reports .
