A warm welcome always awaits at The Old Kennels whether you are attending a course or staying in our pretty guest accommodation – The Loft apartment.

We have been offering a wide and eclectic mix of courses to our valued customers since 2002. Over that time we have built a reputation for engaging highly skilled and respected tutors, and providing a welcoming, relaxed and supportive atmosphere in which to learn. The Old Kennels is a place to escape the stresses of modern living, be yourself, relax and immerse yourself in creativity.

Set in the midst of the beautiful rolling Blackdown Hills in the heart of Devon, our home is a flint barn which we converted about 20 years ago, which was built originally as part of the Stentwood Estate by Squire Eccles in the 1800’s. It is now home to our family, numerous feral cats and herd of Alpacas kept solely for their fibre from which we make luxurious quilts.

We look forward to meeting you soon and hope you enjoy your time at The Old Kennels.
