The Milking Parlour sleeps up to 16 in six bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms. The barn was originally used back in 1750 as the Milking Parlour for Hills Farm. We have converted and restored this barn using natural products and original techniques, incorporating modern technologies and ecologically friendly materials. We utilise air source heat pumps and solar panels to lower our carbon footprint. Our own natural spring provides water to the entire farm. The open plan lounge, dining area and kitchen are extremely spacious with panoramic views over the Axe Valley out to the Jurassic Coastline. Ground floor space is tiled with underfloor heating that keeps you cool in summer and toasty in winter. There is a small garden area to use for relaxation and maybe a BBQ. The kitchen is fully equipped to cater for large groups with two ovens and a large fridgefreezer. The dining table seats 16 and the lounge is very relaxing, with large, comfy sofas, LCD flat screen TV and iPod docking station, lets not forget the free wi-fi.

The Milking Parlour has Hot Tub to use at the side of the barn, with views over the Valley, how perfect.
