The SpaceThe West Wing is the main accommodation at The Red Barns. You arrive through one of the original chunky doors into the entrance hall, which in turn leads to either the living area or the spacious bedroom suite. All the rooms are decorated for calm, relaxation and simple luxury.
The main bedroom features a luxurious queen-size bed, comfortable armchair and plenty of storage. It has gorgeous views of the surrounding paddocks, trees and hills, which can be enjoyed from the daybed under the window. Adjoining the main bedroom is a sitting room/second bedroom, which has a DVD player, as well as another daybed, which can be easily converted for use at night if required.
The bathroom has underfloor heating, a walk-in tiled shower, claw-foot bath and large vanity.
The living area has a round-the-clock woodburner, comfortable quality leather furniture, a large dining table and breakfast unit, which houses a fridge and all the breakfast materials you’ll need for your stay.
Please note, as part of our escapism philosophy, there is no terrestrial or Sky TV, but there is a screen with DVD player, as well as free wireless internet access and a Bluetooth-enabled music system/radio. Guest AccessYou'll have access to the main bedroom, anteroom, hallway, bathroom and rumpus room. Interaction with GuestsWe are happy to help you plan what you can do in this amazingly beautiful part of the world. The NeighborhoodFor a small community, Tai Tapu has a lot to offer. There are two really outstanding cafés for starters – The Raspberry Café, with its amazing baking and gorgeous country garden, perfect for lazy weekend lunches and intimate celebrations, and The Store, a community hub that offers great food, wine and coffee seven days a week. Either of these make great places to stop after a walk, run or bike in the amazing countryside around us. There are also several boutique furniture and gift stores in Tai Tapu, as well as a pub, library and petrol station.
