Home of the Week: Meadow Barn, Shendish
- Credit: Archant
There has been a manor at Shendish since the 13th century when the wealthy de Chenduit family were granted land in the area, building a manor on the site in around 1300.
Over the centuries, the property has passed down through a number of different owners and, during the Great War, was utilised by the British Army as a camp. By the 1930s, the property had become a sports and social club and today, it is a luxury hotel set in 160 acres of parkland (including an 18 hole golf course).
It is within this highly desirable, semi-rural and surprisingly accessible location that Meadow Barn can be found.
This impressive barn conversion offers great charm and character, ranging from cathedral doors to exposed beams; in conjunction with versatile and spacious accommodation of about 2,378 sq ft.
The 19th century mill town of Apsley, situated between Kings Langley and Hemel Hempstead, is half a mile away, providing a selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and a main line service to London Euston.
