Refurbishment of this much loved accommdation

The wonderful improvement works at Airton Barn have meant a real renaissance for both the historic Quaker Meeting House and the so-called Barn which is now a comfortable, well-furnished modern venue. It is so incredibly peaceful there. What a tonic for our often shredded nerves.
