The Granary

Our modern take on a traditional country granary – which is basically a hut sitting above the ground on staddle stones for the dry storage of grain away from four-legged friends – provides useful and comfortable accommodation. 

It can be adapted to suit you: from a ‘summer house’ to a cosy, fully insulated guest room or ‘home office’ with log burner and oak flooring. The options are endless. They are supplied as seen and ready to furnish, or you can opt for modifications. The Granary allows you to have a lovely bit of well- proportioned vernacular architecture in the garden.  

 If you wish to find out more, place an order or commission a bespoke version of your own, please do get in touch – we’d be happy to talk through your ideas.
