The windows and door make it look like a Barn conversion with face.

Very good photo, they have scrubbed up very well, next door to the Colliers Arms Pub, could be good for business.

Looks like an expensive job, but I would call it a rebuild not conversion

Wow Tom what a beautiful photo, reminds me of a big barn my sisters and I used to play in as kids just up the road. Wonderful well done. Cheers

See :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barn
There`s info on barn conversion too.
Have you any info of the age of this barn and what it`s made from, Tom? Looks very well built.

Nice to see an old building being reused.My sister lives in a barn convertion and a few thousand man hours have been spent doing it up,they sent samples of the stone from the barn away and the window/door lintels where made to match the stone.
