Access Statement for Sanctuary Barn, CA17 4DQ


Introduction
Sanctuary Barn is situated on the edge of the North Pennines AONB and Yorkshire Dales National Parks, with views stretching over 30 miles to the Lake District. By matching a recently converted eco-barn conversion with a wood pellet heating system and micro-generation wind turbine, together with over 700 recently planted trees, we hope to provide a comfortable holiday base without the carbon.
The barn is over 200 years old, stone built and set in a rural position, on a bridleway looking down on the A66.
