Beautiful Wrap Around Terrace
The outdoor space at The Lighthouse Barn is truly remarkable. The huge south facing lawn is popular with guests who enjoy outdoor games, rounders, or even your own mini Olympics. A terrace wraps around the barn, giving guests the choice to follow the sun or keep in the shade, with ample comfortable rattan furniture to move wherever you choose, so that you can enjoy the mesmerising countryside views in smaller groups if you wish, or altogether in a large group before retiring to socialise indoors.
