About the Owner

HighGrangeBarn was renovated using local artisans and was completed in 2010. The barn was architecturally designed to our ideas to create a stunning holiday home for our friends & family to enjoy. We now share selected weeks when we are not at the barn for others to enjoy. As a family we oversaw every step of the renovation. As parents to young children we ensured the barn was great for families and adults alike. We call it our home from home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

June 2014... "Your barn is amazingly well equipped and lovely designed. The gallery is great, but also the kitchen and living room is very nice. Not to mention the play station corner… :-) We all could perfectly either be all together or find some quiet corner if needed. One recognizes the love for the detail you put in, really really well done! Also the surroundings are as we hoped: calm and private. The pool was perfect, we used it every day!" Franz Family & Friends.

Aug 2013... "Simply Wonderful! I just wanted to say a huge thank you for our wonderful stay at High Grange Barn. We had a really lovely holiday and thought your house was gorgeous. The boys (and adults) loved the pool and for most of the time the sun shone down on us. We were particularly impressed with how well equipped the house was – you really seem to have thought of everything!

May 2011... "What a truely perfect location for bringing families together to relax, chill and explore the area. Great value for money when you have a full family to fill every bed. The location was lovely, the village perfect to do our local shopping. The barn is lovely, very modern and plush. We felt very fortunate to be staying somewhere so special. You will want for nothing here, the owners have really thought of everything and it made our stay perfect. The size of the barn enables the family to break out, the wifi meant that the older kids were happy to keep in touch back home via facebook. Perfect!

From the Owner

Having stayed in the area we fell in love with the stunning views and countryside which is the Morvan National Park. We were in good company most of our neighbours are from Paris & Lyon, who chose to have holiday homes around us. We set out to turn a derelict barn into the perfect holiday home for families & friends. The barn has total privacy, something we wanted for the perfect getaway.

From the Owner

Each bedroom suite is designed and furnished so each room is unique and with an ensuite modern bathroom to each room it's the perfect place to stay with friends & family. Enjoy our entertaining spaces that actually cater for everyone staying in the barn. All the character of a rural french property including exposed beams & stone walls, yet offering all the space and modern facilities you need to enjoy a holiday in France. No need for a heated pool, our pool is situated in our south facing gardens and naturally draws heat from the ground around making it the perfect place to take a swim to cool off on those long summer days. With a large terrace around the pool and barn, again there is plenty of space to enjoy summer days and alfresco dining.
