Holiday Rental House
Once part of a stable block, The Straw Loft is a simply stunning barn loft conversion sleeping four. The Straw Loft is one of seven stunning five-star 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. Gone are the horses and groom – in their place you’ll find chilled out loft living with a uniquely modern feel and spades of original character. The Straw Loft is accessed by an external stone staircase and enters into a wonderfully light open plan space with vaulted ceilings. Comprising a living area with comfy sofas, dining zone and kitchen, there’s plenty of space ...Once part of a stable block, The Straw Loft is a simply stunning barn loft conversion sleeping four.

The Straw Loft is accessed by an external stone staircase and enters into a wonderfully light open plan space with vaulted ceilings. Comprising a living area with comfy sofas, dining zone and kitchen, there’s plenty of space for everyone to relax and dine together. The Straw Loft has two luxurious bedrooms, both with ensuite shower rooms, ideal for two couples or a family. One is a king-size double room and the other has twin beds. Wallow in the range of activities that can be arranged both on and off site. Or simply kick back and relax. 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. 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 check out the onsite bar with adjoining new restaurant offering freshly prepared, locally sourced seasonal ingredients. Located on the edge of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Straw Loft makes an ideal base for discovering a 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 Freestall (below The Straw Loft - sleeps 5/6); The Milk Shed (sleeps 16) and The Linhay (sleeps 16). Barns may be taken individually or in any combination for get-togethers of up to 50 guests.More
