Rowan Barn is a detached barn conversion which is located in the middle of the village, at the end of a private drive away from the main road. Its private location benefits from stunning views over open countryside towards Chew Valley Lake and beyond.

The utility/store room can be found off the kitchen, along with a cloakroom. The oak staircase leads to the light landing and two further bedrooms, one of which has access to the rear balcony. Completing the upstairs is a stunning family bathroom with separate shower.
