Light and airy with a huge bedroom with Superking bed, a spacious sitting room, fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with bath and shower. From the sitting room you can walk out onto your own balcony where you can sit and enjoy the spectacular views. For 3/4 people there is another family/sitting room and cloakroom downstairs - see below.

If you want even more space we can also include the large Family room downstairs with 50 inch TV (with professionally installed surround sound) Sky TV/Sky Sport/Apple TV/Netflix/DVD Player and DVD collection/X Box and Wii with games provided. There is also another single bed plus a large 4 seater sofa - easily big enough to use as an extra bed if you wanted 2 children to sleep downstairs, 2 armchairs, beanbags, a cloakroom with wash hand basin and loo, underfloor heating, and table football.
PLEASE NOTE: If you want to include the Family Room in your booking please book for 3 or 4 GUESTS (and it will automatically be included by Airbnb).

We provide Egyptian cotton sheets, goose down duvets and fluffy white towels and towelling dressing gowns giving you luxurious comfort throughout your stay. On arrival we want your apartment to be immaculate so we leave a full day and night after each booking for a thorough clean. All sheets and bed linen are professionally laundered.

As well as your balcony, you also have your own private area of our garden with table and chairs directly outside your front door. You are welcome to use this area as much as you like.

Entrance hall
There is plenty of space for wellies and walking boots, and hooks and shelving for coats and hats. A flight of stairs leads to your accommodation which is then all on one level.

Sitting room
There are two comfy and cosy sofas with lots of cushions and merino wool throws for you to snuggle into. One of the sofas is a day bed which pulls out into a very comfortable 5ft double bed with a proper mattress and drawers for storage underneath, and the other is a single daybed. French windows lead onto your balcony.

There is a 42” flat screen TV with Freesat and Netflix with countless options for you to watch and enjoy. You also have a DVD player and lots of DVD's which you are welcome to use. Also free superfast broadband giving you wifi up to 40 MEG so you can surf the internet to your heart’s content.

Kitchen
The kitchen is fully equipped with cooker/hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, kettle, toaster and all the utensils necessary for your stay.
Everything you might need such as bin bags, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, cleaning products, cling film, roasting bags, cloths and tea towels is provided. If you stay for a week or more, for a small charge to cover my costs, I am happy to do laundry for you if you need me to.

On your arrival there will be milk, bread, eggs, butter, tea, coffee, sugar, preserves and biscuits so you will have plenty to keep you going.

Bedroom
The bedroom is huge as is the Superking size bed. We provide only the best linen, Egyptian cotton sheets, goose and duck down duvets, and lots of feather pillows and cushions to make you feel as comfortable as possible when asleep or just lazing around on the enormous bed.

There is plenty of secure parking in the walled courtyard directly outside your property. You have your own area of our garden which you are welcome to use as much as you like. And the whole apartment is of course there for your own private use.

Interaction with guests

As little or as much as you would like. Cleeves House Barn is adjacent to our home but completely separate, and we are very happy to help with any information you may need, either about your accommodation or the local area, we are on site most of the time. We have also put together for you an extensive information pack with places to visit, where to buy food, local pubs and restaurants as well as ordnance survey maps and other useful information as well as lots of suggested walks nearby.

Other things to note

BUT PLEASE BE AWARE THERE IS A FLIGHT OF STAIRS AND WE DON'T HAVE A STAIR GATE.

An immaculate, cosy but spacious property with superb views from both the living room and main bedroom over the Chalke Valley. Very handy for the village pub or trips to Salisbury and Shaftesbury. Great walks all around in the Chalke Valley. All the mod cons in the cottage, and so quiet. An ideal getaway.

We had a wonderful weekend staying at Sarah's converted Barn in Ebbesbourne Wake. We had booked for the weekend of our wedding and were looking for somewhere peaceful in the countryside to relax after the big day and the space and views were perfect! Sarah was the perfect host and kindly met us before our wedding to give us a quick intro. She also ensured we had milk, fresh bread, eggs from a nearby village and coffee and other bits we might need, which was hugely helpful. Sarah also (very kindly) gave us some Champagne to celebrate tying the knot which was a lovely surprise. Sarah also sent lots of useful information through beforehand, which included plenty of tips for great pubs to visit nearby. The property was beautifully decorated, spacious yet very cosy and the views across Wiltshire from either side of the property are absolutely stunning. A truly wonderful place to escape to in the country. We had such a wonderful weekend and and would not hesitate to highly recommend this to others - you won't regret it.

This property exceeded our expectations .... although the description and photographs were accurate it was the attention to detail that made this special place so lovely. From the beautiful décor, to the particularly well kitted-out kitchen, the really comfortable bed and top quality bed linen, snuggly dressing gowns, plentiful local provisions we felt really spoiled. The views from both ends of the property overlook fantastic countryside and Sarah, our host, could not have been more helpful .... providing clear directions and recommendations for things to do / places to eat nearby. We will be back.

We stayed at the Barn for a weekend away to celebrate my friend's birthday. The Barn is a wonderful place, located in a quiet and peaceful spot, it was perfect for a relaxing weekend. The views are spectacular! It is spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The beds are all very comfortable and the bedding luxurious. The living room and a large comfy sofa and is great for chilling out in the evenings and we had full access to Netflix, Sky and lots of DVDs. The kitchen is very well equipped and Sarah provides all the basics, eggs, milk, bread and butter. We picked up the rest of our groceries from Salisbury on our way to the Barn. There are several supermarkets located close by though and Sarah has left clear instructions on how to get there. I can't recommend the Barn enough. If you want to escape to the countryside, this is the place for you! Finally, Sarah was a wonderful host and we just wanted to say thanks again!

Sarah's and Chris' place is absolutely wonderful...where do I begin. We Visited there for 2 nights (4th-6th August) with my girlfriend Hannah and another couple for a birthday surprise. As it was a surprise I informed Sarah on the day of booking and she was fantastic. She assisted with the surprise and arrangements from getting decorations for the barn to some champagne for Hannah on arrival. We arrived and were greeted by Sarah and her dogs and had all the amenities in the barn, from local jam and fresh bread to the cinema room downstairs. The barn itself was stunning, a big double room with beautiful interior with a second living area with a bed which was really comfortable. Downstairs we watched films on the settee which could fit all Four of us comfortably on large tv with surround sound speakers, we played table football and turned the music up loud - we were far enough away from Sarah's house to not disturb anyone in the main house. We had breakfast on the balcony and took in the countryside air. The views from the barn were magnificent, sweeping countryside everywhere you looked, no neighbours for miles and our own privacy. Sarah gave us some great recommendations for the local area and the pub at the bottom of the hill (the horse shoe) is a must to visit. A dreamy country pub with great food and a warm welcome by the landlord and his family behind the bar. Sarah was only a text away when we had a query of the area and could not have done more for us over the 3 days. She went above and beyond to ensure we felt welcomed and enjoyed our stay to the point it was hard to leave! We will be back in the winter for sure and are already looking for dates we can do and will be recommending Sarah's place to our friends and family. Thank you Sarah!!! It's simply divine. 5 stars all around from Jack, Hannah, Liam and Roisin.

This was absolutely perfect for a weekend getaway from the everyday hustle and bustle of life. Breaktaking views, with a stunning location & home. The host could not have been more welcoming and we had regular contact leading up to our stay. Everything was thought of and therefore our stay could not have been more perfect. Will definitely book again & couldn't recommend enough!

I couldn't fault a single thing about Sarah's beautiful barn! Her communication before was fantastic, answering all of our questions quickly and thoroughly, giving us directions and amazing restaurant recommendations. On arrival, Sarah was there to greet us and show us around the barn. Sarah is so approachable and friendly and a great knowledge of the local area. She left a lovely hamper of eggs, butter, jams, biscuits and a few other treats along with walking maps and bike trails for us. She also very kindly lent us her bikes for the afternoon! The barn had clean towels, a huge comfy bed, a hair dryer, reliable WIFI, a fully equipped kitchen and a great DVD collection (if you have a rainy evening like we did!) The barn is immaculate and so beautifully presented. The views are stunning and the surrounding area is equally beautiful. We can't wait to come back.
