Beautiful two-bedroomed loft apartment over our artists studio provides the perfect base for exploring the rolling Devon countryside. With a kitchen/dining room, lounge and two bathrooms, private terrace with seating and little garden its perfect for a couple, friends or family stay. Located conveniently for Dunkeswell Airfield, between the villages of Dunkeswell and Hemyock, in the middle of the Blackdown Hills, a central location for exploring Devon.

The space

Comfortable apartment, with lounge, kitchen/dining area, two bedrooms (which can be made up as one double and one twin, or two twin rooms as requested). One room has an ensuite shower room with wc and hand basin, the other a private bathroom with wc, hand basin and shower over the bath. The spacious kitchen and dining room (with table and chairs, electric hob/oven, washing machine, fridge, microwave and dishwasher) opens onto the patio with seating and small garden area.

The apartment is completely private, it is situated over our studio up a flight of steps and away from the house. You will have your own little garden area, but are also welcome to walk in our 25 acres of woodland, there is a picnic basket in the apartment ready for your use!

Interaction with guests

We are always happy to advise on days out and ways to enjoy our beautiful area, we provide maps of the nearby footpaths and brochures of places to visit, as well as having an arrangement for discount with our local golf course, skydiving and small plane hire nearby.

Other things to note

Bed linen and plenty of towels are included. Wifi internet is available but your broadband is very rural, you are better off using 4G - best network signal is with EE, some networks don't get much of a signal in the apartment, but most do outside. TV. Kitchen has belfast sink, microwave, electric cooker, fridge, washing machine, crockery/cutlery and cooking utensils. Use of iron and ironing board, hair dryers, central heating, electricity & water are all included.

We meet and greet guests, give you keys, show you around and answer any questions. Check in time is usually 4pm but we will try and accommodate different check in times as best as we can. Early check in at 10am can be pre-booked at an extra charge of £20 where we can accommodate it, if for instance you are getting ready to go to a wedding or family event. Check out is 10am, but again can be up to 3pm by prior arrangement & only where possible, at a charge of £20.

We have many cats and a herd of alpacas (the cats are never allowed in the apartment and we ask guests not to encourage them in please!). Wildlife is abundant as we are so rural and there are wellies for you to use if you want to go for walks. There are also lots of nature identification books for you to take along.

A great location for the Blackdown Hills! We only had a short break but the loft apartment was so comfy and cosy - so much nicer than staying in a hotel. Had everything we needed. Some beautiful walks from nearby even our 6 year old girl was kept well entertained and enjoyed the walks, the alpacas and the cats The kitchen was well equipped and the owner was very welcoming and helpful Just fabulous! We definitely felt like we had found a little gem! Perfect for our needs! Thank you so much!

this is a very nice loft for a few days, it is small but practical en well equiped. there is not much strorage space but that is not a problem if you stay only a few days. It is very rural with a nice tea room nearby but with almost no mobile coverage. the hosts are very friendly and helpful.

Sadly most of Devon has poor mobile coverage, if you are on Vodafone, EE, BT (or associated brands) there is full coverage and 4G here at The Old Kennels, but other mobiles may not get the same :)

Tracey was a welcoming host and we had a great time. The apartment was spotless and suited us perfectly for a close location to our friend's wedding. Thank you Tracey!

A Beautiful secluded spot for a relaxing break in the country surrounded by nature and animals. Our kids particularly loved Tracey's Alpacca's and cats. Essential to have a car to access local amenities. Accommodation was compact and very tastefully and thoughtfully appointed with everything we needed. All in all an enjoyable stay and we would happily return. Tracey was a most thoughtful and helpful host.

Fantastic location. Great walks. Lots of animals. Very relaxing and beautiful setting. The flat was pretty good too- all very clean and tidy, with a full kitchen to cook meals in. Tracey very helpful with recommendations of where to go locally etc.

We had a wonderful stay at Tracey's apartment. The surroundings were wonderful, the kids had a fabulous time with Tracey's son, and the alpacas! Tracey couldn't have been more helpful, and really made us feel at home. Some great touches, and lovely to stay somewhere with such an environmental focus too! Would definitely recommend.
