The Barn

The Cycle Barn is located in an old working barn dating back to 1811 that was used to house horses and dairy cows below with hay being stored in the loft where the shop is now.

Some of the windows still have the sliding wooden slats that could be opened to allow ventiliation to keep the hay dry. We tried to be sympathetic when renovating the barn keeping it’s character whilst making it a suitable space for the shop. I particularly like the pitched part of the ceiling showing the original roof beams. The store room is one of the best preserved Dove cotes in Nottinghamshire. It has nesting boxes for nearly 1000 birds, please ask if you would like to have a look, it’s quite impressive!
