About Us


Hibly and Saul welcome you to Kennick Barn our home in a secluded corner of Dartmoor national Park. We live here with our two cats Millie and Tilly and our small flock of hens. Ravens, buzzards and swallows fly overhead and our meadow buzzes with insect life in the summer.

Here you’ll find a secluded hideaway from the stresses of life, on a typical day all you’ll hear is sheep and birdsong, with the occasional passing tractor.

Just down the road are three beautiful reservoirs with many walks to explore by the water, through the woods and down to the local villages of Christow and Bridford both of which have welcoming pubs for a meal or just a pint of local cider.

At the reservoirs you can fish, for trout in Kennick and for pike in Trenchford, check out for more information.

We are within the boundary of the national park with all that has to offer, walks, views, wildlife, quaint towns and villages and ancient sites will give you all you need to know about this unique area.

Your secluded hideaway from the stresses of life!

What Our Customers Say About Us


Tranquil and serene…

If you are looking for peace and quiet then don’t hesitate. Great local pubs, hiking on the doorstep and beach 30 minutes away. Everything you would want from a short break.




Very peaceful relaxing place to stay!

Tucked away in Dartmoor. The barn was lovely and equipped with everything you need. Within half an hours drive of the coast and The Races. Lots of beautiful walks and stunning scenery.
Hibly And Saul are great hosts.
