Our former barn, dating back to the 1700s, is now a lovely home for our eldest daughter and her family – and also a self-contained holiday cottage for visitors to our area.
The Boskins combines historic with 21st Century to offer the best of both worlds.
The cottage was once our ‘back shippon’ where, in days gone by, six cows were milked and where hay was stored on the ‘baulks’ above.
Each cow was tethered to a boskin by a soft cotton rope prior to milking...so the cottage’s name was easily chosen!
