This is a generous sized property, ideal for gatherings. Wheatsheaf Barn was built in 1715 and carefully restored by the owners in 2011 to create a contemporary interior within the original fabric, using quality oak joinery and luxury fittings. The 60 foot open plan living area offers very spacious accomodation with a dramatic double height area. There is plenty of space to cook, eat and socialise together. A feature of the property is the upstairs landing sitting area with its folding doors opening onto the outside balcony and views westward over the river. ...This is a generous sized property, ideal for gatherings.

About the neighbourhood
Wheatsheaf Barn is situated on a very quiet lane leading up to the traditional farming village of Wrabness with its ancient church. (Five minutes by car from the Barn or a ten/fifteen minute walk). The village is also the site of the house designed by the potter Grayson Perry which he has named 'a house for Essex'. There is a well equipped children's playground in the village. The community shop in the village can supply most requirements (including cash back and alcohol) and the licensed cafe is the place to be on Friday evenings. . There are safe, level, tidal beaches at Wrabness shore (across two fields), Dovercourt, Walton, Frinton and Clacton.
Getting around
There is a station in the village (Wrabness) with a service once per hour to either Manningtree or Harwich, which connects at Manningree with the main London to Norwich line. To London will take about 1.15 hours.
