Our barns at Cranberries Hideaway can accommodate from 2 to 56 guests in 7 barns. Each barn has been lovingly created from a former 18th-century dairy farm set in 100 acres of Devon countryside. Located on top of a hill in the village of historic Kilmington, just 1 mile from Axminster and the famous River Cottage Canteen and River Cottage HQ. The five-star and gold award winning barns come with spectacular views over the Axe Valley and the Jurassic coast.
Cranberries is an ideal location for family get together, Girlie Weekend and corporate retreat. You can relax whilst here – or seriously over-indulge. Shoot clay pigeons, fish, ride, enjoy being pampered, walk or book a murder mystery. We have over 30 activities we can arrange for you here at Cranberries and at the end of the day soak up the balmy evening in one of the hot tubs.
