Manor Holding Byre - Rooms

Barn Roof Beams

Manor Holding Byre is a small converted barn and so has few rooms, but has been insulated to current building standards.

Living Room

Living Room

The greater part of the byre is taken up by the full height living room, featuring traditional baronial hall style oak roof timbers, including principle rafters and king posts.

At night a black iron chandelier is supplemented by traditional iron wall bracket lighting.  While the massive gable wall is punctuated by randomly distributed, and sized, deep window embrasures, between recessed bookcases disappearing into the gloom of the roof void, each lit by a swan necked picture lamp.

By day the room is brightly lit by the numerous but variously sized windows both north and south, including opening casements at a comfortable level, giving views over the upper orchard (SSSI), and ant hill field, whose mature far hedge marks the medieval parish boundary.


Single Sofa-bed

The floor is paved in herringbone pattern brick, and heated with invisible under floor central heating.  A room thermostat / timer allows precise temperature control 24 hours a day (6 time zones per day).

A 2 seater leather sofa bed (single) faces the view over the orchard and TV in the corner. 

A sturdy dining table and bench separates kitchenette alcove from the main living room.


The double ceramic kitchen basin and drainer is lit by a row of ceiling mounted recessed and adjustable spotlights and by a opening casement window with a view of the upper orchard across the Byre's private garden area.

A programmable dual fuel stand alone cooker with fan assisted electric oven and 4 burner gas hob, is supplemented by a microwave oven above the fridge/freezer.

Wall mounted shelves and low level storage space, hold a comprehensive selection of crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils.

Like the main living room off which it opens, this kitchenette has a brick tiled floor, with underfloor central heating.

Wheelchair Access

Wet Room Shower / Toilet

The main lighting is from three ceiling mounted recessed spot lights.   A wall mounted electric towel rack / radiator adjoins the door.

The curtained shower area in one corner of this room provides maximum flexibility of use.  As the whole floor drains gently towards the shower gully, there are no sudden changes of level to interfere with wheel chair or other access. 

A stylish "bowl on table" style wash hand basin is fed by a simple wall mounted mixer tap.  Above this tap a wall mounted mirror is flanked on each side by a wall mounted lantern, with single pull cord switch. 

Beside the basin, a standard shaver point provides 110 or 220 volt output, two pin, shaver sockets.  The wash hand basin faces a standard pedestal toilet and low level cistern.

Like the main living room off which it opens, this room has a brick tiled floor, with underfloor central heating.

Loft Bedroom

A compact twin bed mezzanine loft bedroom is accessed externally by south facing stone steps. 

The half glazed door and vented skylight ensure good light levels during the day, while 4 individually switched overhead swivel spotlights focus light just where you want it at night.

The wardrobe incorporates shelves and drawer.

Guest Comment

Two brilliant meals at the Fighting Cocks in Stottesdon and the Plough in Far Forest on the way home last night. Lovely walk through forest to Buttonoak, saw field full of cowslips.
