June has spent the last 10 years developing her renowned garden at Tinode as well as a number of outbuildings in the picturesque estate. Together with architect Michael Kelly, builder Radek Kazmierski and a number of other very talented people they have created a number of contemporary spaces for accommodation, faithfully respecting the materials and structures of the old farm buildings. These can be booked directly on our site, The Cow House (2 bedrooms), The Turkey House (2 bedrooms), The Harness Room (1 bedroom) and The Garden Studio.
