Get together at The Linhay, one of seven luxurious stone barns delicately restored from a former 18th century dairy farm at Kilmington Barns.
Sleeping 16 in six bedrooms, The Linhay offers the ultimate bolthole for families and groups of friends and is wheelchair accessible. There are lots of activities on hand. Or champion the inviting hot tub – and relax!
The stunning five-star barns are located on a hillside above the village of Kilmington with wonderful views over the Axe Valley and the Jurassic Coast. Situated on the edge of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the barns are set amongst 100 acres of beautiful private countryside on the Devon/Dorset border.
Beautifully converted to the highest standard, The Linhay retains its original character with luxurious style and modern facilities thoughtfully inserted.
The barn benefits from an impressive open plan living space with panoramic views over the Axe Valley serving the perfect backdrop. Featuring a chic and contemporary lounge area and a large well-equipped kitchen and dining zone seating 16, there’s plenty of room for everyone to relax and dine together.
The Linhay has three en suite king-size bedrooms, one twin rom with dedicated separate bathroom, and two en suite family rooms each with a king-size bed and two singles. Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor; the twin room and one of the family bedrooms. This family room has a wet room and disabled access, ideal for guests with reduced mobility.
To the rear, The Linhay has a large private garden with an inviting hot tub and spectacular views across the valley - perfect for unwinding or a spot of stargazing at the end of the day. There are plenty of picnic benches and a seating area too for al fresco dining or simply relaxing.
You’ll also find the Hideaway Spa nestled within the tranquil settings, offering the most luxurious products and unique treatments delivered by highly trained therapists. A superb range of activities can also be arranged both on and off site, promising anything from cocktail making to canoeing!
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 prepare a celebratory meal in your kitchen (clearing away included!). Alternatively, just a short stroll away is an onsite bar with adjoining new restaurant offering freshly prepared, locally sourced seasonal ingredients.
