Property Description

Oddies Barn is a beautiful barn conversion offering over 3100 square feet of accommodation and 6.6 acres of stunning grounds, including award-winning wildflower meadow, orchards and kitchen garden.

The Barn was converted to its current form nearly 25 years ago, Incorporating  original 17th century timbers, the property has been sympathetically designed to create a bright, airy and contemporary home whilst retaining the character and charm of the original barn,

The Barn is steeped in local history, its footprint being the milking parlour, dairy and fruit store of the Aston Dene home farm which served a former 50 acre church owned estate, and takes its name from a minister resident in the 18th C, Augustus Oddie.

Nowadays, the Barn stands in private grounds; a mix of formal gardens, kitchen garden, orchards, meadow, willow coppice and woodland, all of which enjoy the seclusion, afforded by the surrounding mature hedges and trees.
