The Cart Barn offers peace and tranquillity in beautifully restored accommodation, set in 26 acres of landscaped and wild grounds. This stunning renovation of a Victorian steading was completed in 2009 as part of a small group of farm buildings which sit between mountains and the sea, some 400 metres from the bay at Roshven house.
