Beautifully Restored Barn In Tranquil Surroundings

Be inspired by the peaceful surroundings of The Old Barn and get close to nature in this beautiful part of Devon. The barn, which dates back to the 18th century, was renovated from 2021 to 2023, taking full advantage of the size and aspect of this original farm building to create a peaceful retreat for couples wishing to enjoy the tranquil surroundings of the barn, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Immerse yourself in peace and tranquillity on the large upper deck, which provides a wonderful outdoor space for you to relax in the sun whilst enjoying far reaching views to Dartmoor with our sheep grazing below.

The Old Barn, situated in a peaceful rural hamlet just 2 miles from the A30, is the perfect base for couples to enjoy an extended holiday or out of season short break. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, Higher Kellacott has excellent access for guests wishing to explore Dartmoor, West Devon & Cornwall, including major tourist destinations and popular Cornish beaches. Famous landmarks including the Lydford Gorge White Lady waterfall, Tintagel Castle, St Michael's Mount, the Eden Project and numerous National Trust properties are all accessible. Furthermore, Dartmoor National Park is just 20 minutes drive, offering many beautiful walks, cycling paths and wild swimming pools.

Despite its rural location, there are many pubs and restaurants in the vicinity, with ample local amenities nearby for groceries; the award winning Strawberry Fields Farm Shop is just a few miles away. Guests can also arrange for online grocery delivery, freeing up time for rest and relaxation. We also have a range of home produce for guests to order, whether it's some of our award winning home cured bacon, free range eggs, or a fresh loaf of bread and croissants hot from the oven for breakfast.

The barn has an upstairs living space with a vaulted ceiling. During the renovation we recreated the original barn roof structure, featuring replicas of the old scissor beams, which provide a wonderful feeling of space where guests can relax and unwind in total peace and seclusion, with granary doors overlooking our fields and far reaching views of the hills beyond.

The ground floor enjoys original barn features, tiled floors and underfloor heating. The large bedroom features a stunning vaulted ceiling with oak beams, exposed stone wall and tiled floor with underfloor heating. The room has a beautiful wooden super king-size bed with luxurious memory foam mattress and Egyptian cotton bedding, along with antique furniture and chaise longue. Next to the bedroom is a large bathroom, which features a luxury freestanding corner bath and large walk-in shower.

An oak staircase leads up to an open plan living space, incorporating a fully equipped kitchen with dining table and chairs. The seating area features sofas, a smart TV, Bose speaker and electric feature fire, and looks out onto a large upper deck with glass balustrade which is accessible through the granary doors. From here guests can relax in the sun overlooking Dartmoor as well as our fields with sheep, geese and hens grazing nearby. The deck, which also enjoys the early morning sun, faces west, so is perfectly placed for guests to enjoy spectacular sunsets.

The Old Barn can accommodate up to two well behaved dogs and guests are welcome to use our fully fenced field as an exercise area, where they can be let off the lead. Being near to Dartmoor, Roadford Lake and many Cornish beaches, there'll always be plenty of walks to choose from.

Guests are also welcome to help feed our very friendly sheep, geese and hens, so please do let us know if this is something you'd like to experience during your stay.

Reviews for The Old Barn at Higher Kellacott

Meet the owner

Georgina Tomkins

David and Georgina Tomkins have been regular visitors to Devon and Cornwall for many years, enjoying family holidays on the coast or walking on Dartmoor, so when the opportunity to move down to this beautiful part of the country came along in 2017, it was an easy decision to make. This smallholding, which enjoys an elevated position along a beautiful stretch of countryside west of Dartmoor, has proved to be the perfect base to pursue a love of nature, the countryside, walking and wild swimming. Having renovated The Cottage in 2018 and The Old Barn in 2022 & 2023, we now enjoy sharing this beautiful hideaway by offering two holiday cottages for couples to enjoy a real taste of the country. Along with the cottages, we also run our Nearly Home Honey & Beekeeping business, selling honey and hosting a range of beekeeping experiences. We take great pride in ensuring that all our guests have everything they need for the perfect stay at Higher Kellacott, whether it is for a short break or extended holiday. We're always on hand and more than happy to help in any way we can to ensure you have a memorable stay.
