This site is one that is most intriguing and pays homage to those wonderful old barns located throughout the UK that has been restored and turned into once again very useful establishments meant to accommodate travelers, diners and society at large. Here we have focused on the restoration of barns for the use of accommodation for residents and travellers to the UK. While many of these buildings that we talk about were once used for the housing of horses and other livestock they have outlived their usefulness for this purpose.
The transformation of barns into restaurants, hotels and other venues doesn’t mean that the horse ownership or equine industry is dying in the UK. Contrary to this it is thriving. What it means is that those in the horse industry have adopted to better ways to house and accommodate their horses with more modern-day type buildings and technology.
Rather than let old historic barns sit and rot innovative business persons have been able to convert these barns into more modern-day usage like Hotels, restaurants and bed and breakfasts.
Throughout some of the posts here you will see how a barn and its affiliated buildings dating back to the 18th century has once again been brought back to life.
For those who cannot fathom the idea of taking an old barn and restoring it to become a wonderful and warm and exciting Hotel, we have written a post explaining why this type of building is ideal for this.
This site may make you want to stay in one of these restored barns or, more ambitiously, restore one yourself!
