History Manor Barn as its name suggests was part of Orleton Manor which once belonged to our client. When the Manor House was sold he retained the farm buildings and created four barn conversions. Manor Barn is the largest of the properties, located at the end of a private drive, set on a generous plot with mature gardens and orchard in all 1.64 acres.

Stone steps lead up from the Reception Hall and double opening glazed doors open to the Living Kitchen. Designed and built by the vendor this is a light and airy room, heptagonal with a vaulted ceiling with roof light and full height windows enjoying lovely views over the gardens to the orchard and countryside beyond.
