The Milkshed, in Luppitt, sleeps four in two bedrooms and unique features include a wood-fired hot tub and on onsite Michelin-trained chef.

Sally Balcombe, CEO of VisitBritain and VisitEngland said: “The standard of the hundreds of applications we received this year was extremely high and that’s why The Milkshed’s accolade is a testament to their excellent work.”

Katie Hollyer, owner of The Milkshed, was presented with the award during a ceremony at the Bath Assembly Rooms last month.

She said: “We are absolutely delighted to win this award! We are so proud to have represented Devon and to have won the silver at national level. It is truly an honour.”

The Milkshed is no stranger to accolades, having scooped top prize at the Devon Tourism Awards in 2017 and silver in the same awards a year prior.
