What is a Barn Conversion?

Well the clue’s in the name really. A barn conversion is a former farm out-building that’s been adapted and converted for use as a home or holiday rental. In the latter capacity, barn conversions have become extremely popular in recent years.

Why Are Holiday Barn Conversions So Popular?

For some short break holiday-makers, it’s about the destination rather than the property itself. This is one of the reasons why holiday apartments remain popular.

But like cottages with thatched roofs or quirky holiday properties, barn conversions offer a more rounded short-break holiday experience - you'll be able to enjoy your chosen location as well the property itself.

What Can I Expect from a Holiday Barn Conversion?

Modern holiday barn rentals tend to be very spacious. This wasn’t always the case though – during the 1980s the tendency among planners was to split and segregate these beautiful buildings into smaller rooms.

Open-Plan Living Space

Thankfully, this practice is nowhere near as widespread as it once was. Most converted holiday barns now feature open-plan living spaces that make better use of the actual building, thus lending a sense of space and openness.

Character Features

And because of stricter building regulations, converted holiday barns will retain original elements both inside and out. Typical features include vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and/or brickwork and double-height rooms.

The most highly-rated barn conversions successfully combine these features with the very latest modern comforts such as under-floor heating, hot tubs and state-of-the-art appliances. Also keep in mind that these buildings are rurally-located which means you’ll have the countryside right on your doorstep!
