    This was our third stay here due to it being quite simply a sensational property in a breathtakingly beautiful location. We have always felt effortlessly relaxed when staying here. The extremely friendly owners have thought of everything to maximise the enjoyment of just being in the property and it’s outside space. There is nothing to fault. There are numerous spectacular walks accessible from the front door. All of which offer incredible views of the surrounding area of Bantham and beyond. There are many great dog friendly pubs within easy reach serving food. It is best to check opening times first as weekdays in particular may vary. Having said that, self catering here is amazingly easy. Sourcing great ingredients in nearby Kingsbridge is also a pleasure. There are so many excellent independent shops selling everything fresh and locally produced. We especially loved the fishmonger “Catch of the Day” on Fore Street and couldn’t help going back for more! We highly recommend staying at “The Old Milking Shed “. Our only dilemma now is when to book again.
