All about the outside:

When you arrive
Malthouse Farm Barn is approached through the 5 bar gate. The driveway offers parking for 3-4 vehicles.

Back garden
The back garden can be accessed through a 6ft solid side gate to the right hand side of the property, should you not want to enter through the house. The garden is surrounded by 6ft walls making it the perfect enclosed and private space. There is a large lawned area and a patio which sweeps the length of the barn with access to the utility room, lounge and both the downstairs bedrooms.

There is a further patio to the rear of the garden with sofa seating and coffee table. There is a charcoal Weber BBQ with a starter pack of coal supplied through the summer months. The brick outhouse offers storage for all our doggy items including a large crate.

Will this property suit my dogs?

Absolutely!  From the hard floors inside (but not slippery) to the secure garden, this is just heaven for dogs.  Lots of space and comfort for them. Very little can be heard or seen from the outside area.  The owners – Ally and Rick – live next door with their beautiful spaniels should you need any assistance during your stay.
