    • “We had an amazing holiday at the milk shed, the owners are so hospitable. We were made tea and coffee on arrival and supplied with fresh home made bread, scones and jam and also freshly laid eggs from the chickens. The milk shed is extremely comfortable and has all the items needed for home from home. The outside space for children is brilliant and keeps them entertained. The sheep and the chickens are an added bonus and we were fortunate to be able to look after them. I absolutely totally recommend a holiday at this magnificent place.”

    Mrs Simpson, Reading, October 2018

    • “Loved the milk shed nice & cosy, but quite remote if like facilities, ok for us though ,our sat nab took us the wrong way ,all round houses on all the single track roads to get there, the local community shop is handy & well stocked, Jayne &hubby helpful & friendly.also the sheep said hello every time we came drove in. Would reccomend again. Linda & Brian.”

    Mrs Sellwood, Southampton, October 2018

    • “The cottage was equipped to very high standards, and was very comfortable. Very nice owners to deal with.”

    Mrs Attwood, RUISLIP, September 2018

    • “Just returned from the most wonderful stay at The Milk Shed. Jayne and Andy made us feel so very welcome from the moment we arrived with a hot drink, home made cake and even ice creams for our children. The accommodation was spotless and very well equipped and in our opinion perfectly located to explore many attractions for a super holiday. We loved it and hope to return soon.”

    Mrs Jackson, LONGFIELD, August 2018

    • “Lovely cottage and very kind and helpful hosts. Drinks and home made cake on arrival, home made bread (which was delicious!) And their own free range eggs too. All just perfect.”

    Mrs Cameron, COCKERMOUTH, August 2018

    • “There very welcoming people in spite of being a very busy couple,and we would love to go back there in the future!”

    Mr Griffith, Evesham, June 2018

    • “Lovely little milk shed which was spotless and very nicely presented with comfy beds and all kitchen requirements, laundry in the main house. The owners were away and Christine a friend was left in charge. She was delightful and extremely helpful with suggestions of where to eat in the evening etc.Fresh eggs, milk ,bread and scones a lovely bonus. We were however disappointed with the description of dog walks from the property. This consisted of any one of four fairly busy lanes with high hedgerows keeping the dog on a short lead. Or a short walk up to a farmers field which was ready for harvesting. We would also have preferred to have the garden adjacent to the rental accommodation. But am I being too fussy?? Overall we really enjoyed our short break and would recommend a stay here. Anne F”

Regional Information

PLYMTREE Honiton 8 miles; Tiverton 11 miles; Sidmouth 13 miles. Plymtree is a delightful village in East Devon with plenty to offer it’s visitors. Lying in the valley of the River Culm the village is surrounded by rolling Devon hills, green wooded valleys and scattered farming villages. Plymtree is home to a local pub, The Blacksmith Arms, along with additional village pubs within two miles serving good food. Also of interest is the community shop, run by volunteers and the historic parish church of St John the Baptist. The church itself dates back to the 14th century and of great interest is the 15th century addition, the painted rood screen. In the churchyard gaze at the ancient Yew Tree, thought to be over 1100 years old and the inspiration for the village’s name. Plymtree is only a short drive from the dramatic 20 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural World Heritage Site. Resorts such as Seaton, Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth are found along this stretch of coastline, and all have plenty to occupy their visitors. An easy drive from Plymtree is the cathedral city of Exeter with plenty of large shops, a wealth of museums, a theatre and many fabulous restaurants. Plymtree is also close to the rugged and unspoilt expanse of Exmoor National Park as well as the tranquil and beautiful Blackdown Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
