In England (I don't know about the rest of the U.K) unconverted barns are becoming more expensive, and rare, sometimes as expensive as a finished house. Planning restrictions can be quite onerous, both external and internal. In France it's different, many British are tempted with really inexpensive structures that come with land, something that is craved for in overcrowded Britain and unless you are in a restricted area you can do almost as you please. A 30 second internet search came up with this barn in the Charente region. With planning permission, half acre of land, water & electricity on site and priced at just €36,000. Yes you still have to spend money on the conversion, the average spend is €1000 a square metre, but you can have the house that you want relatively inexpensively.
