CIDER BARN in Askerswell

This converted old Cider Barn sits adjacent to The Mill and is situated at the edge of the property’s orchard and garden. Once used to house the apple press for making cider, the Cider Barn was connected to the Mill via a leather belt, driven by the waterwheel, which was used to prepare the apples for the press used in the cider making process.


Now lovingly restored, this unique building is a comfortable place to stay for up to four people with country cottage style kitchen, woodburner in the lounge and with original wooden beams throughout. It has an ‘upside down’ arrangement whereby the sleeping area is downstairs enabling the living area and kitchen to afford beautiful views upstairs.


The upstairs at Cider Barn has a spacious kitchen and living area with two leather sofas, ipod dock, freeview TV, DVD and CD player. There is a cosy logburner with logs (provided from October to April) with oil central heating throughout the barn.


Seven external steps lead to large, first floor, open plan area with original vaulted beamed ceiling and oak flooring. Fully equipped kitchen with new appliances including washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, ice-box fridge, touch control electric hob and fan assisted double oven.


The Cider Barn sleeps up to 4 in two downstairs bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom has a king sized bed and fitted wardrobes and Flagstone floor. The second bedroom is a twin bedded room with two single beds, travel cot, wardrobe and flagstone floor.


Fully tiled, modern, fresh and clean bathroom with luxury shower, bath, vanity unit, heated towl rail and vaulted pine ceiling.


The entrance to the Cider Barn overlooks the working waterwheel attached to the Mill. There is a fenced gravelled area with seating and BBQ adjacent to the rear of the barn which then leads through the apple trees and into the main garden with millpond and leat to to the rear of the property. Children must be supervised in the Orchard as there are culverts, streams and a deep pond.

Free as Birds in Cider Barn

It is sad to leave as we have had a fantastic time. Sam and Millie loved playing in the garden - free as birds! The big wheel was great to see spinning. The countryside towns and villages a delight.
