The village life is a breath of fresh air away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The local post office and store, two local pubs, and the 12th century church, are all within 400 yards of the barn.

A wealth of country-orientated recreational activities exist within the local community and Doddington itself sits conveniently close to Cambridge, the North Norfolk coast, Sandringham and King's Lynn. London is close with a 50 minute train journey from nearby Huntingdon or Peterborough train stations.

The conversion was planned to be highly sensitive to both environmental concerns and conservation and this is evident throughout the construction.

The original building is remarkable for its quality of construction and that structure has been almost perfectly preserved. The historic internal walls and divides have been fully incorporated within the design.

The original hand-thrown clay bricks, of local origin, have been used exclusively through the reconstruction. Over 90% of the original roofing timbers have been retained.

Where additional materials have been used, these have again been sensitively selected. These include conservation rooflights, Hereklith wool board, and finally Tri-iso super 9 active insulation; which has allowed us to finish the barn with a fully vaulted ceiling and every beam exposed.

Local craftsmen have been used throughout the project from carpentry to bricklaying to achieve a superb standard of construction and finish.

It is said that the ideal barn conversion should always feel like a barn and retain its heritage. In shire Barn, I am happy that we achieved this objective.

  • Grade II listed Barn Conversion.
