If you’re thinking about planning a group break with something a bit different added, relax! Red Kite Barn have thought of everything you’ll need for a stay that will see you on close terms with nature, while still keeping you connected with the modern world.

With three wonderfully cosy double bedrooms to choose from in an exquisitely converted stone barn, it’s a great excuse to get some friends and family together and head to the woodland!

You’ll find exceptional views are no problem at all, with Red Kite Barn’s magical setting on a remote estate, in 80 blissfully peaceful acres of private woodland that blends into beautiful National Trust-owned moorland.

The barn itself is an upside-down holiday haven, lovingly converted to retain its traditional 19th century features whilst adding contemporary touches of luxury throughout. Sleep, bathe and dream on the ground floor, whilst upstairs you can make the most of abundant natural light in the spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and living area.

The bedrooms are a delight to sleep in, furnished with downy bedding and atmospheric lighting that will soon have you snoozing soundly in blissful silence! The master bedroom includes an ensuite Moroccan-inspired bathroom, featuring a low tadelakt bath and a fibre optic overhead shower.

Head to the other side of the barn, and you’ll find a king-sized double bedroom that features a cosy fireplace, perfect for relaxing with a good book. This room also includes an ensuite, with a luxurious roll-top bath and LED mood lighting… simply fill the bath with sumptuous bubbles and drift away on a cloud. The third double bedroom is gorgeously comfortable, and can be made up as a twin on request.

You’ll also find a utility room on the ground floor that houses a washing machine and tumble dryer – very handy after long windswept days outside exploring the very best of nature.
