Sleeping 16 in six en suite bedrooms, The Milk Shed offers the ultimate bolthole for families and groups of friends, with lots of activities on hand. Or champion the inviting hot tub – and relax! The stunning five-star barns are located on a hillside above the village of Kilmington with wonderful views over the Axe Valley and the Jurassic Coast. Situated on the edge of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the barns are set amongst 100 acres of beautiful private countryside on the Devon/Dorset border.

Sleeping 16 in six en suite bedrooms, The Milk Shed offers the ultimate bolthole for families and groups of friends, with lots of activities on hand. Or champion the inviting hot tub – and relax! The stunning five-star barns are located on a hillside above the village of Kilmington with wonderful views over the Axe Valley and the Jurassic Coast. Situated on the edge of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the barns are set amongst 100 acres of beautiful private countryside on the Devon/Dorset border. Originally used as the Milking Parlour for the farm, the barn has been beautifully renovated to retain its original character - with luxurious style and modern facilities thoughtfully inserted. The Milk Shed benefits from a generous open plan reception space comprising a well-equipped kitchen, lounge and dining area. Offering plenty of space for everyone to relax and dine together, panoramic views over the Axe Valley serve the perfect backdrop. The Milk Shed has three king-size bedrooms (two of which are on the ground floor), one twin, and two family rooms, each with a king-size bed and two singles. Outside, The Milk Shed has plenty of outdoor seating for al fresco dining plus an inviting hot tub. With views over the valley, it’s perfect for unwinding or a spot of stargazing at the end of the day. You’ll also find the Hideaway Spa nestled within the tranquil settings, offering the most luxurious products and unique treatments delivered by highly trained therapists. A superb range of activities can also be arranged both on and off site, promising anything from cocktail making to canoeing! We’ve detailed more in the “Things to Do” section. If you want to switch off and take a rest from cooking, the highly rated chefs onsite can drop off meals direct to your door, or prepare a celebratory meal in your kitchen (clearing away included!). Alternatively, just a short stroll away is an onsite bar with adjoining new restaurant offering freshly prepared, locally sourced seasonal ingredients. The Milk Shed makes an ideal base for discovering this delightful, unexplored corner of Devon, bordering both Somerset and Dorset. Locally, the friendly, pretty village of Kilmington is half a mile with a post office, store, a fantastic farm shop and excellent pub, The Old Inn. The pretty market town of Axminster, home to River Cottage Canteen and famous Axminster carpets, is two miles offering a large range of shops, pubs and eating places. Just over the border into Dorset are many Iron Age hill forts. To the north are the quiet roads and charming villages of The Blackdown Hills AONB, the Somerset levels and Vale of Taunton. Or head south to enjoy both the West Dorset and East Devon World Heritage Jurassic Coast. The seaside town of Lyme Regis, famous for fossils is only 15 minutes' drive and the traditional fishing village of Beer is less than 20 minutes. Seaton's historic tramway along the wildlife-rich Axe estuary to Colyton is within a 10 minute drive. Astronomy enthusiasts will appreciate the Dark Sky area. The other six barns at Kilmington Barns are: Keepers Tallet (sleeps 2); The Pony Trap (sleeps 2); The Creamery (sleeps 4); The Straw Loft (sleeps 4); The Freestall (sleeps 5/6) and The Linhay (sleeps 16). Barns may be taken individually or in any combination for get-togethers of up to 50 guests.More
