Plan a Great Day Out

Bring a picnic and enjoy the area around the barn, which is next to the River Avon and the Kennet and Avon Canal, and close to Barton Farm Country Park. The centre of pretty Bradford-on-Avon is a short walk away.

Farleigh Hungerford Castle is a three mile drive from the barn. Explore the ruins of the castle and its chapel, take the audio tour and pick up a souvenir in the well-stocked gift shop. Stoney Littleton Long Barrow, Bratton Camp and White Horse and Nunney Castle are also within driving distance.
