Love the idea of a thatched cottage but less keen on low ceilings and dark rooms? This contemporary cottage with three double bedrooms could be the answer as it blends the best of old and new.

Aside from its stone-built exterior and the original well in the garden, everything else about this barn conversion is brand new.
