The Details...

Stay in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at The Milkshed, a converted farm building in Blackdown Hills in East Devon that mixes luxury with rural charm. What was a crumbling outhouse just a few short years ago is now a holiday getaway for 4 just outside of the market town of Honiton.

The old stone barn has been cleverly redesigned to incorporate everything required for the perfect escape to the countryside. All on one level there is under floor heating throughout the property for those cold winter nights. A large open social area with vaulted ceilings and wooden beams comprises of the living space - with wood burning stove, L-shaped leather sofa, and TV - flowing into the fully equipped kitchen, complete with Nespresso coffee machine, fridge/freezer, oven, and dining room table and chairs for up to 6 people.

The 2 bedrooms are versatile, with 1 made up as with a king size bed and the other having the option of either being a twin room or having a superking. The master bedroom comes with its own en-suite, as well as a freestanding claw-footed bath in the bedroom itself. There is also a further shower room.

Outside is a large and enclosed private garden. This includes a lawn area, herb garden, and outdoor seating for enjoying an evening drink or alfresco dining. Then why not relax in the wood-fired hot tub for that added little bit of luxury.

The Milkshed is eco-friendly, with the hot water and heating provided by a state-of-the-art biomass log burning boiler. To make your stay that little bit more special then one of the owners is also a Michelin level chef and can provide gourmet dinners, seasonal picnic hampers, and much more upon request.

Guests are encouraged to roam the 4-acre meadow beside the property, while there are several other walks and bike trails right on the doorstep. For those who prefer the beach then those at Branscombe, Sidmouth, Beer, Lyme Regis, and Exmouth are all nearby, while just a few miles away is Honiton and its array of shops and restaurants, as well as its twice weekly market.
