The Shamba Features

We have enjoyed converting a small barn into this much larger delightful holiday home and would like you to enjoy it too! It is called The Shamba which means “Farm” in Tanzania which is where our son lives and works. So it is from Tanzania with love.

It has been an exciting journey and we are so pleased with the end result. We wanted to be able to offer a choice of accommodation to guests and feel that this one compliments the other properties we have available. The underfloor heating and amazing insulation from both the double glazed windows as well as the walls make The Shamba as cosy as all the others!

With views across the unspoilt farmland, this single storey barn conversion has a light and spacious open plan kitchen/dining/living room. There is a patio door which leads out onto your own private patio with only the stock proof fence separating it from the adjacent field. The kitchen is well equipped with all you will need including a dishwasher, electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and washing machine. There is a dining table with 6 chairs and a number of kitchen units with more than enough saucepans and crockery for your stay. There are two leather settees around a coffee table with a large LED TV on the wall. Rebecca our daughter has created some African artwork for the walls to be in keeping with the theme – it enhances the beauty of the rooms.

The main bedroom has a king size bed with luxurious 400 thread count Egyptian cotton bedding,  a walk in wardrobe, bedside tables with lamps and a cheval mirror. The second bedroom has two twin beds which can be zipped together to become a super king size bed, a walk in wardrobe, bedside tables with lamps and a chest of drawers. Underfloor heating, Free WiFi, luxurious bedding and towels are all provided. The wet room has a large rain shower, heated towel rail, vanity unit and toilet.

The accommodation is completely on one level making it suitable for a family with an elderly relative.

Well behaved dogs accepted by arrangement at £20 each dog.

A privilege!

Gosh what a privilege being the first paying guests in The Shamba. We found a spotless cottage, very well equipped in a great rural location. The peace and quiet is relaxing. The cattle a welcome distraction – Coach and Horses pub very reasonable prices. Visited the coast – nearer than you think. Congratulations on a very successful conversion bringing new life to an old building for many people to enjoy.
