Mrs Whyte and her husband first moved into their beautiful period barn in the market town of Rugeley in 1992. What attracted them to the then recently converted property was its character and old-world charm, with its beams and sloping ceilings.
The barn has two bedrooms situated at either end of the building, with a long, wide landing running between them. Similarly to the bedrooms, the landing also features a large beam that is set away from the wall, and a sloping ceiling. Tucked beneath the slope was a half-height fitted cabinet that, although adequate for storing bedding and linen, was not suitable for clothing.
