This barn was converted into a holiday let and then needed a low maintenance courtyard style garden for guests to enjoy the views and sunny aspect.

A block built wall was faced with local stone to look integral with the barn. The wall design included a couple of small niches for lanterns or candles.

The space needed some privacy from the parking area belonging to the farmhouse and a long raised timber bed was included for this purpose with evergreen screening shrubs and perennial colour.

“The garden planting gives enough privacy between the holiday let and farmhouse without making it feel too enclosed.”

“The design includes steps down to a lower space for a bbq and loungers, and the far wall height was kept low for the views across fields.”
