Here's your full run down of this place, inside and out...
Vinegar Hill is big and arty, this spacious family-friendly holiday home in Milford on Sea is the perfect summer holiday find. The area is quiet and private but just 10 minutes walk from the bustling foodie heaven village and local beach too!
The open kitchen/dining room is spacious and great for a home eating, this extends out to the sunny south facing garden too. The bedrooms are spread across the main house (2 doubles, 1 twin and a single) with an additional 2 double rooms (one with an additional single bed) both with bathrooms, one of which has its own separate entrance - great for those wanting a bit of quiet (one is also downstairs with its own private sitting room).
Two bedrooms are suitable for small travel cots. The garden is not fully enclosed but the fencing is good enough to keep under 5’s in. There are plenty of toys and boardgames here. We provide 1 travel cot, 1 high chair.

Safety for children
The garden is not fully enclosed but the fencing is good enough to keep under 5’s in. There is one area which is easy to see from the kitchen table. The woodland area at the end of the garden is well fenced.
There are wood piles in the wood which is accessed by paths from the bottom of the garden (you can easily see this path from the kitchen table). It is not safe to climb or play on any of the wood piles - parents must watch this.
Fronting onto the road is a fully functioning pottery which will be in operation during normal working hours. They run a small shop and courses there too.
There are chickens to the side of the garden which will be being looked after. A gardener will visit once a week. They are in a cage that they can't get out of, and foxes can't get in. Whilst they appreciate scraps of food from guests, they don't need to be fed and definitely not let out.
The spiral staircase to the loft bedroom is steep and outside. There is a good downstairs bedroom and bathroom here.
