About the neighborhood
The Tithe Barn lies in a countryside setting, but within easy walking distance of the small town of Ashburton, where there is a full range of shops, with a focus on good food and antiques. There are two delicatessens, two butchers, two supermarkets, an artisan bakery, an organic food shop, a vegetable shop, a local produce food market, and a wine shop. There are numerous cafes and pubs serving food and a wine bar serving tapas. There are Chinese and Indian take-aways and a fish and chips shop. The list seems endless! There are also many antique and gift shops where you can browse endlessly to find that special item to take home.
