    “My family and I stayed at the Milking Barn for a week at the beginning of August, after months of not leaving the home due to lockdown it was just what we needed.”

    ...

    The accommodation is spotless, has everything you need for a perfect staycation and the host Ashley couldn’t have done more to make us feel welcome and comfortable and if ever we needed anything he would provide it straight away. There are only 2 other holiday lets onsite, so it is quiet and very peaceful- we actually only ever saw Ashley coming and going about his day. On the last day be bought some steak from his farm and had a BBQ, it was delicious! Ashley also provided us with a large basket of wood and every night we would light a fire and play card games. Placed on a working farm, there are plenty of fields and walks within the area to explore. The nearest supermarkets are a 5 minute drive in each direction and the High St and local town centre with shops & restaurants are also very close by, there are also Cider and a Buffalo farm a short drive away where you can purchase local produce. There are many beaches and sightseeing spots all within a 45 minute drive. We visited, The Tor at Glastonbury, The Cheddar Gorge and went shopping at Clark’s village. We also went to West Bay, Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Weymouth Bay, Portland Bill as well as Durdle Door and Ludworth Cove beaches where the boys were able to hire kayaks, paddle boards and pedalos. Again these were all with 45 minutes drive from the accommodation. I can’t recommend the Milking barn enough, the location is perfect to feel you are away from the hustle and bustle of the city but it is close enough to seek adventure! Thank you Ashley!

The property

Enjoying a working farm position on the outskirts of the bustling town of Yeovil, is this well-presented barn conversion, The Milking Barn.

This superb all-ground-floor accommodation enjoys a rural position within the southern region of Somerset and is within close reach of the majestic setting of the Dorset AONB, perfect for a relaxing retreat with the whole family.

The contemporary-styled dwelling comes with one king-size double bedroom which benefits from its own en-suite shower room and a twin bedroom with zip/link bed features to ensure a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of your group.

Each bedroom enjoys bright hues of colour, views of the countryside setting to wake up to each morning and ample storage and space to house all of your personal belongings.

Continuing to impress is the contemporary kitchen, where the sleek units housing all the quality appliances you could possibly need to cater for yourselves during a week-long break with your loved ones, including a washing machine and a dishwasher.

Settle down for dinner at the dining table to tuck into your meal and to plan the next day's adventure, before relaxing into your evening within the sitting room, where the roaring woodburning stove offers comfort during a chilly winter's evening.

If you are visiting during the summer months, throw open the patio doors to allow the cool breeze to filter into the space or spend a moment or two within the garden to soak up the sunshine whilst the barbecue rustles up a treat.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful base venture into the English town of Yeovil, where you will be spoilt for choice by the amenities that await you, in addition to a number of attractions to suit a family of all ages and tastes.
