The perfect bolthole for a romantic couple's break, The Tack Room is a stunning ground floor studio in a former stable block, with comforts brought very much up to date. The Tack Room is one of seven barns sensitively converted from a former 18th century dairy farm at Kilmington Barns. Located on a hillside above the village of Kilmington with wonderful views over the Axe Valley and the Jurassic Coast, the barns are set amongst 100 acres of beautiful private countryside. Sleeping two, the studio barn has a uniquely modern feel and spades of original character. Comprising a sitting, dining and sleeping zone with king size bed, there's a kitchen area in an alcove and an en suite multi jet shower.

You'll find the Hideaway Spa nestled within the tranquil settings, offering a hot tub and sauna, plus unique treatments delivered by highly trained therapists. The kitchen is more than ready if you want to cook that romantic meal yourself. If not, simply have one of the highly rated chefs onsite drop off a meal direct to your door. Or check out the onsite bar with adjoining new restaurant offering freshly prepared, locally sourced seasonal ingredients.
