The Lifetsyle Barn
The Story So Far

Since 2016 we have had planning permission on our BIG BARN to convert it into a coffee shop and shop.  Works have taken place externally over the years and plans were in place to finish converting the interiors in October 2020 when our wedding season would have ended. Then Covid arrived.  So the big plans were put on hold. 


In the absence of Christmas events, Lynn & Jules (Just Jules Jewellery) decided to 'Pop up' a shop in one of our smaller meeting rooms - formally a Bull Pen.  Stocked with ranges from local businesses who also couldn't attend any events; 'The Shop that saved Christmas' (as it was proudly named by one of our dedicated customers) proved a massive hit allowing local people to shop locally, safely and to support local businesses.


About The Lifestyle Barn

 Following the success of the Christmas pop up shop, but still not in a position to convert our BIG BARN; Lynn and Jules decided to take the shopping experience to the next level and moved diagonally towards the dream and into one of the slightly bigger barns at the farm which used to be a Flour Mill.


The Lifestyle Barn offers an extensive range featuring local creatives and a wider selection of products sourced within the UK by independent businesses.  The ranges offer ambient food & drink, sustainable gifting, handmade accessories, lifestyle collections and a capsule clothing range.


The farm is also open for woodland walks with takeaway drinks and an outdoor seating area has been created for visitors to relax and enjoy the  environment in beautiful surroundings. Our aim for The Lifestyle Barn is to establish a friendly shopping environment, accessible to the local community which supports local businesses.

We hope to start internal works on our BIG BARN later in the year. In the interim we we will continue with a pop up coffee shop and honour weddings due to take place this year.  We hope that by the winter the BIG BARN will have heating so we may continue our offer to visitors all year round.
