The perfect bolthole for a romantic couple’s break, The Pony Trap is a stunning ground floor studio in a former stable block, with comforts brought very much up to date.
The Pony Trap is one of seven stunning five-star barns sensitively converted from a former 18th century dairy farm at Kilmington Barns. Located on a hillside above the village of Kilmington with wonderful views over the Axe Valley and the Jurassic Coast, the barns are set amongst 100 acres of beautiful private countryside.
Sleeping two, the studio barn has a uniquely modern feel and spades of original character. Comprising a sitting, dining and sleeping zone with king size bed, there’s a kitchen area in an alcove and an en suite multi jet shower. Underfloor heating is another touch of luxury and keeps the toes toasty in winter, whilst the porcelain floor tiles keep the studio cool on wonderful summer days.
Wallow in the range of activities that can be arranged both on and off site. Or simply kick back and relax. You’ll find the Hideaway Spa nestled within the tranquil settings, offering a hot tub and sauna, plus unique treatments delivered by highly trained therapists. We’ve detailed more in the “Things to Do” section.
The kitchen is more than ready if you want to cook that romantic meal yourself. If not, simply have one of the highly rated chefs onsite drop off a meal direct to your door. Or check out the onsite bar with adjoining new restaurant offering freshly prepared, locally sourced seasonal ingredients.
