“Heaven in Devon”
Reviewed 6 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

A beautiful barn redone as a cosy and intimate luxurious accommodation.
Relaxing and peaceful, a perfect hide away in the Devon.
Katie as very helpful and easy to get on with from reservations to check-out.
I highly recommend the Milkshed and will return, probably in spring or Summer.

“Luxury getaway in the beautiful Devon countryside”
Reviewed 1 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The Milkshed is the perfect break, luxury accommodation set in the beautiful Devon countryside 10 minutes away from Honiton. It's in a great location which means it's easy to get to the coast and surrounding areas. The Milkshed has been lovingly furnished with a practical kitchen with all the amenities that you could wish for. Prior to our stay Katie was very helpful with information and recommendations. We were lucky with the weather and in particular we loved the hot tub, that was a real plus for us! We will visit again!

“Miss”
Reviewed 1 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We have just returned from a wonderful week away at The Milkshed. Everything was as of an excellent standard and the owners have thought of everything to ensure you have a relaxing break.
The grounds, hot tub and the three course dinner cooked by Mark, were all outstanding, and nothing was ever too much trouble for Katie- thank you very much and hope to see you all again in the future.

“A Haven in the Devon countryside”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Booked for weeks break with my wife. Just standing outside on the first morning listening to everything - without the noise of traffic/people - is always a great start to the holiday. The accommodation is superb - two good size bedrooms one on-suite with bath and a good sized family bathroom. The rest of the Milk-Shed is also furnished to a high quality. There is everything you want for your holiday. Make sure you get Mark to cook you a meal (the last night is recommended) you will NOT be disappointed - we had a superb meal - thanks Mark.
Honiton itself is only 10 mins. away and there is a good selection of pubs/restaurants (esp. The Boston Tea Party)
This is an excellent base to cover Devon/Dorset and parts of Cornwall - Exeter, Torquay, Salcombe etc. - you have a endless choice. Highly recommended

“Excellent long weekend”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We loved: the quiet setting, the woodburner, friendly hosts and the excellent meal they prepared for us.

Our children loved: exploring trails through the field, feeding the chickens, visiting nearby beaches

We disliked... nothing. Much marvelous-ness all round - thank you.

“Fantastic holiday home which always exceeds our expectations ”
Reviewed 27 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This is our third visit to the Milkshed and as ever we are extremely impressed with the very high standard of accommodation, set in the glorious Devonshire countryside.The property is beautifully furnished and everything is catered for, including buckets and spades to borrow for the beach. There is nothing that the hosts haven't thought of. What lets most properties down of this standard is the comfort of the beds. However, at the Milkshed the beds are luxurious.

Since our last visit there is a coffee machine complete with coffee pods, which means you have no reason even to leave the accommodation. You certainly wouldn't want to miss though the array of beautiful places to visit within a fairly short drive away, including Sidmouth and Lyme Regis. When you return there is a hot tub waiting for you to relax in.

Katie and Mark are outstanding hosts, and nothing is too much trouble. Katie each year puts our online food shop away, so that it is ready for when we arrive, allowing us to start our holiday straight away.

I therefore cannot recommend the Milkshed more highly.
