About the neighbourhood
Kennick Barn is set in woodlands 900feet above sea level and near three stunning reservoirs. We are within the Dartmoor National park and above the beautiful Teign valley. There are a lot of beautiful walks from our house. Bridford and Christow provide village pubs and Bovey Tracy and Moretonhampstead a range of shops. The main thing about Kennick is it's peace, quiet and starlit nights.
Getting around
You need a car to get to Kennick, or maybe a bike, we are on the Dartmoor Way cycle route.
