As soon as you enter the property via the front door and are greeted by the openness and splendour of the reception hall one cannot help but feel impressed. With its high vaulted ceiling and bespoke staircase with bespoke banister the reception hall is certainly a pleasing introduction to the house and a sign of the attention to detail and the high quality of finish that has been put into the wonderful and unique conversion.
Located off the reception hall is the generous 32ft sitting/dining room. The room has double doors opening to the entertaining area at the front of the property, deep sil windows and attractive oak flooring. At the far end of the room is a neatly concealed, but generous storage cupboard.

Meadow Barn is situated in the village of Pensford and lies in the Chew Valley with the River Chew flowing through the Centre.
Within the village, there is a range of local facilities including a highly rated primary school, a Post Office, Parish Church, a selection of Public Houses and a Village Hall.
The predominant feature of the village is the Grade II* listed disused railway viaduct. The viaduct was constructed in 1874 and once carried the Bristol and North Somerset railway over the River Chew.
The nearby village of Chew Magna has a good range of local shops including a well-stocked supermarket, master butcher, coffee shop, travel agent, post office and a bank. There are also four public houses within Chew Magna, one of which (The Pony and Trap) has been awarded a Michelin star. Meadow Barn also falls within the catchment area for the highly regarded Chew Valley secondary school. There is also a number of independent schools throughout Bristol, Bath and Wells to choose from.
The village’s situation in the Chew Valley offers commuters excellent access to the regional Centre of Bristol which is 7 miles to the north and the Heritage City of Bath which is 12 miles to the east. The Cathedral City of Wells, which offers further facilities, is 16 miles to the south.
The Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes are close by, notable for their fishing, birdlife, sailing and nature study amenities. A visit to Salt and Malt at Chew Valley Lake is highly recommended, as this modern tearoom/fish restaurant is owned by the same family as The Pony and Trap. Further outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed on the Mendip hills, well known for their limestone features.
High speed rail services to London Paddington are available from Bristol Temple Meads and Bath Spa whilst Bristol International Airport is just 20 minutes away.
