First Floor: Like our other cottages, Nutcombe Barn is a bank barn and therefore entry is from the rear of the property at ground level onto the first floor of the cottage.

The kitchen: A shaker style kitchen with black granite work surfaces, fully equipped with a built in fridge/freezer, ceramic hob and electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and kettle and plenty of crockery and cutlery for several days.

The open plan lounge/dining area: With three large leather sofas perfectly positioned for socializing, admiring the view or watching the large flat screen Smart TV with Freesat offering over 200 channels. There is also a DVD player and a small selection of books and family games. The furniture is solid oak to match the flooring and just off the kitchen there is the added convenience of a small separate toilet with washbasin.
The dining area has a large oak dining table with six upholstered chairs. The table can be extended to create a much larger table which can seat up to 12 people, making it perfect for larger parties taking both Nutcombe Barn and Cider house (see below for details).
