Cloth Workers Barn is an outstanding barn conversion, set in the grounds of the The Cloth Hall, a 15th century yeoman's timber hall house, and has been transformed into a modern space full of vibrancy and elegance, yet retaining its grand features. The property now boasts a spacious open plan living area with underfloor heating and a beautiful kitchen which is both stylish and functional. Large floor to ceiling windows letting natural light flood in, a woodburning stove and a dining table with plenty of room for everyone to sit around.  The property sleeps up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms, each with their own TV, en-suite shower room and fluffy robes.  In addition, the master bedroom has a majestic freestanding Catchpole & Rye Le Bain de Bateau. Each room has been beautifully themed, using natural tones and wallpapers depicting nature, all adding to the calmness of the decor. Outside the property has its own terrace garden, screened using beech hedging and guests are free to wander round the owners' large garden and vegetable patch where you 'can pick your own' from a seasonal selection.  The owners offer use of their pool by arrangement, which can be used by all guests and there is also a games room with armchairs, a fridge and a pool table with  a small gym below. The chocolate box village of Smarden is a stone's throw away with three local pubs.  Shop: 3.4 miles  Pub: 0.2 miles  Coast: 22 miles.
