Idyllic country settings, high vaulted ceilings and plenty of space – what’s not to love about a good barn conversion? Here are some of the best currently on the market. 

1. The New Barn, Kent

The New Barn

Situated right on the edge of the rolling countryside, The New Barn is a lovely conversion surrounded by magical landscaped gardens. Inside, endless green hills are visible from the bright, triple-aspect kitchen/dining room, while period features like original timber beams, flagstone floors and exposed brick walls lend the property a timeless charm. There is also a gorgeous orangery, which opens onto the gardens. Available through Savills for £1,195,000

2. White Owl Barn, Norfolk

White Owl Barn

With its grand exhibition hall, full-length windows, vaulted ceilings and open fireplaces, White Owl Farm is a rare, luxurious family home that’s impressive enough to comfortably host anything from weddings to art exhibitions. Converted to a high standard, the house has all the comforts of a slick city pad – including underfloor heating throughout and a large dressing room in the master suite  – while making the most of its country aspect; many of the principal rooms have full-height sliding doors. The grounds are just as magnificent, with an incredible bespoke labyrinth, a careful replica of that found in the Chartres Cathedral in France. Available through Strutt & Parker for £1,475,000

3. Peasbrook Farm, Cheltenham

Peasebrook Farm

Along with lovely, airy interiors, towering ceilings and cosy nooks filled with original wood features, Peasbrook Farm offers exceptional equestrian facilities. There are 23 stables, as well as an Olympic-sized outdoor area, horse walker, mirrored indoor arena, two stallion paddocks and a 23-acres grass field. The barn itself is surrounded by verdant grounds and  landscaped gardens, with fruit trees and a lily-filled fish pond. Available through Strutt & Parker for £2,250,000

4. Crafton Farm, Buckinghamshire

11 Crafton

Set in around 2.6 acres of paddocks and landscaped gardens, this barn conversion seamlessly blends modern living with manifold character features. Bright and spacious thanks to the large windows and French doors, light pours into the principle rooms, including pale-blue kitchen. The sprawling back garden, dotted with shrubs and colourful flowerbeds, looks out onto an endless expanse of lush green fields, and the property also comes with extensive equestrian facilities.  Available through Michael Graham for £1.4m

5. Fisherwick Road, Lichfield

The Granary

Steeped in history, this Grade II-listed barn conversion is purported to be the tallest remaining barn in Staffordshire. The vast ceiling height lends the house much of its impressive character: the living room is flanked by a wrap-round mezzanine, which leads to a third floor nestled in the barn’s topmost eaves. Naturally, the four bedrooms are supremely cosy, with timber beams, vaulted ceilings and heavy wooden doors. At the rear, the home is shaded by a large hedge, concealing a lovely front garden and outside seating area. Available through Fine & Country; offers over £850,000

6. Finglesham Barn, Deal

Finglesham Barn

What was once a modest granary is now a stylish, contemporary conversion, with refined interiors that make the most of the house’s original flagstones, exposed brick walls and wooden beams. One of the prettiest coastal towns in Kent and quieter than neighbouring Margate and Whitstable, Deal combines the best of country and sea, with the feel of old-school British seaside.  Available from Mr and Mrs Clarke for £705,000

7. Willow Barn, Hampshire

Willow Barn

A gorgeous conversion of a 17th century property, the gorgeous Willow Barn is a lovely, sunny home which manages to look utterly contemporary, effortlessly incorporating vaulted ceilings and inglenook fireplaces in a relaxed country-style interior. Set in secluded, sun-dappled gardens planted with a diverse range of trees, shrubs and flowerbeds – in which you can find a charming shepherd’s hut, currently used as an artist’s studio – the accommodation is split between the main building and a separate annexe.  Available through Knight Frank for £1m

8. The Old Hay Barn, Nottinghamshire

The Old Hay Barn

Set around a pretty brick courtyard within mature grounds and gardens, the main building of the Old Hay Barn is a luxurious, sympathetically restored home, boasting all the features befitting of a first-class conversion, as well as some additional pleasant surprises, such as the vast indoor swimming pool. Available through Savills for £975,000

9. The Studio, Staplefield, West Sussex

The Studio, Handcross Road

A gorgeous courtyard-style conversion, it’s hard to believe that parts of the Studio date back to the 1500s. Today, it is a stunning family home: the oldest parts of the property comprise a split-level drawing room, with exposed timber beams, stonework, a high vaulted ceiling and impressive working fireplace. Modern additions include a bespoke kitchen and spectacular tiled bathroom by Fired Earth, a centrepiece slate fireplace and contemporary lighting fixtures. Available through Strutt & Parker for £1,250,000

10. The Old Transmitter Station, Bristol

Old Transmitter Station

High-end, contemporary luxury meets country life at the Old Transmitter Station, an exceptional conversion ideally suited to all manner of lifestyles. Set within spacious grounds with incredible views onto the Chew Valley, the stylish family home was built from locally-sources stone to comprise a huge entrance hall, large kitchen/dining room and six bedrooms. Exceedingly private and secure, the property is situated at the end of a long drive, and can only be entered via biometric access control. Available thorough Wilfords for £2,750,000
