Our Inspector's view

Designed exclusively for couples, The Old Barn and The Cottage are two beautifully restored holiday cottages located on the owner’s smallholding in the hamlet of Kellacott, West Devon. The buildings are equipped with every home comfort and are located in a rural area among acres of land with scenic views and high-quality fixtures and fittings. Dogs are also welcomed, with one small to medium dog in The Cottage and up to two dogs in The Old Barn. Guests are asked to keep dogs under control while on the property but there is an enclosed field for off-lead exercise and a variety of spectacular walking destinations, such as Dartmoor National Park and Roadford Lake, close by.

About the area

Discover Devon

With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.

Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them. 

Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
