This fantastic barn is the perfect getaway for a big party, a chill hang out place or just a breath of fresh air from the lovely country side.

Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the 18th century threshing barn, dairy and stables are a prominent feature from the North Downs Way. The original green oak framing was in a state of near- collapse at the start of the project. It had to be carefully disassembled and removed from site for repair by a specialists in traditional hand- carpentry techniques. While the smaller stable range remains timber-framed, the main barn frame and cladding is largely cosmetic – the oak is supported by a steel exoskeleton.
The mastermind behind this extraordinary barn is architect David Liddicoat at Liddicoat & Goldhill. The work took nearly two years and by december 2014 the Anicent Party Barn stood ready for its new owners. Whether the new owners will make the barn live up to its name is at this time uncertain. Although we are sure we would.
