Converted in 2018 Ragnell Barns are a group of five beautifully converted barns set around a communal courtyard in this idyllic location. They are a fine example of Listed Grade II Model Farm barns, built in the 1880's by Major West, a director of the Great Western Railway and owner of the Barcote Estate. The impressive brick-built buildings were designed for housing livestock as well as the storage of corn and fodder. It is believed that part were also used for accommodation for some of the estate workers.

The Old Dairy is an impressive single storey conversion, converted to a high standard and providing stylish, spacious, and particularly light accommodation. It enjoys a lovely outlook over its own private garden of 0.23 acres, and the surrounding countryside and benefits from a double car port and a garage/store.

The front door opens from the attractive communal courtyard into the entrance hall with vaulted ceiling and sky lights. The accommodation is arranged in an L-shape with the three double bedrooms (1 en-suite) all with fitted wardrobes, and the family bathroom arranged together, with the living areas ideally situated enjoying an outlook over the gardens. The snug/playroom with oak flooring provides the flexibility for several uses, whilst the impressive kitchen/dining/sitting room provides a fabulous open plan everyday living and entertaining space with limestone flooring, French doors opening to the terrace and the benefit of a wood burning stove in the sitting area. The kitchen has a range of fitted units with integrated appliances, oak surfaces, and a large island unit. In addition, there is a useful utility/boot room with direct access to the garden.

The garden is a particular feature providing a most attractive setting backing onto the communal paddock and wildlife pond. There is a further small garden with sitting area leading off the bedrooms.
