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.
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
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.
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.
My partner and I visited at the end of January for our engagement weekend and it was truly fabulous!! A beautiful location and completed to such a high standard - it really is perfect!
All the little touches are fantastic and really make it... from home-made brownies and a pre-heated hot tub on arrival to the kitchen goods supplied (that you always forget when you go on holiday
Thank you Katie and Mark for helping make our engagement weekend so memorable, we'll definitely be back!
