We live locally and often went past the barns when walking our dog. We bought them when they were in a poor state and Jason spent five years working most weekends on them, renovating them and saving all of the materials and features that he could to keep the character of the barns. I was responsible for tea making, supply of lunch, cleaning, fetching and carrying....! In fact, it is a real family business with our children helping with the chickens, gardens and occasional cleaning duty. our children into the the lovely homes that they now are.

After spending many happy holidays on farms and beautiful houses in France, Ireland and Wales, we wanted to offer high quality accommodation to people who wanted to get away from it all or bring their beloved pets with them to share their holiday, just as we wanted to.
We renovated Jepcrack's over a number of years, working with each barn's unique character and adding luxurious touches to make our guests' stay special.
We opened The Hay Barn to our first guests in October 2011, closely followed by the adjoining Barley Barn in December 2011.
We have just completed The Cart Lodge and are looking forward to welcoming guests to our newest property.
The barns can be rented separately, for 2 people upwards, or you can rent all 3 to provide accommodation for up to 20 people.
Each property has its own character and as the buildings emerged we worked with each one to bring out their unique features and to add special touches to make them interesting, comfortable and homely.
THE HAY BARN has a great downstairs area with breakfast bar, ideal for a get together. With a king sized bedroom and tow further double bedrooms, all en-suite, it is great for friends or families.
The BARLEY BARN is very much a home from home, with an open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area. The master bedroom is downstairs and has a king sized bed and sofa bed, making it ideal as a family room. The antique French wardrobe and jacuzzi bath en-suite give that touch of luxury. The double bedroom upstairs is spacious and also has an en-suite. The third bedroom offers flexibility of either a single, twin or king sized bed and also has a bathroom opposite.
THE CART LODGE is a delight. With vaulted ceilings throughout and walnut and marble floors, it has a French, antique theme. Nothing shabby about this; just pure chic. The ideal romantic retreat.
