Barmoor was built in 1908 in the Arts and Crafts style as a family home.
It has been maintained to preserve that ambience, while we now have some conveniences of modern life.
In the experience of many users of Barmoor, the shared activities of daily life such as food preparation, washing up and cleaning are a memorable element of their visit, that contributes to their group cohesion.
NOTE: Furniture may from time to time be renewed or repositioned.
Current arrangements may not be exactly represented by the photos.
