We have completed our Visit England 'Good to go' certification - we have completed a risk assessment, amended our cleaning protocols and written a Covid-19 policy in preparation for re-opening this weekend. We are ready to welcome guests and can't wait!
Our resident mallards have some fluffy additions to the family! It is so lovely watching them grow and learn. Visiting families are always so excited when new babies arrive.
CORONAVIRUS update 11/05/20: We have decided to accept provisional bookings from July 2020 onwards. Instead of our usual 25% deposit on booking with balance due 8 weeks prior to arrival, we will be asking for a £50 booking fee with the balance due one week prior to arrival. The £50 booking fee will be taken off your final balance should your holiday be able to go ahead. In the event of the government extending restrictions and your holiday not being able to go ahead, we will be happy to transfer the £50 booking fee to a later date.
It doesn't have to be Summer for the beach to be fabulous! A happy few hours spent at local beach, Branscombe. A walk and some pebble finding, followed by a lovely lunch at the Sea Shanty cafe on the beach. Blew the cobwebs away!
What a beautiful Milkshed and a perfect place to unwind and relax after a chaotic Christmas. We had a wonderful time and we were so glad to have been able to book our New Year break with you. Thank you and a very happy New Year to you all. December 2019/January 2020.
We decided to rebook for Christmas while we were here for our Summer holiday! We are so pleased we did! The Milkshed was the perfect setting for our family Christmas dinner, with family members joining us for the day who lived about 20 min drive. Colder than it was in July, The Milkshed was cosy and warm and peaceful. Such a lovely space. December 2019
What a lovely, beautiful, relaxing place to spend my 30th and our 4th wedding anniversary! Thank you for all the special treats, we have loved every minute and don't want to leave. We will be back with our little one to enjoy the surrounding countryside. Thank you! December 2019
Our lovely hot tub is perfect for relaxing in day and night - there are lovely views over surrounding countryside by day, and by night you can stargaze!
Many of the families who visit The Milkshed comment on how lovely it is to see their children enjoying the outdoors rather than being glued to a screen. We have several acres for them to run around in and plenty to explore! Our own children live onsite and love welcoming other children to their garden of fun - they share fun times and often guests with children return. It is lovely to see children growing up over the years - they are always drawn back to the outside space and the good old-fashioned fun that it brings. Long may it continue!
