About Helen Caine
Helen was brought up in the farmhouse. She and her husband Peter bought the Barn in 2008 from members of her family.
Why Helen Caine chose Avonwick
The Barn was where we played in the hay as children and fed the young calves who were housed in the lower floor! It was converted nearly 35 years ago and now is sited in the peaceful valley I knew so well.

A lovely warm cozy property
We had a lovely stay! A warm welcome.
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage, it was peaceful, cozy, relaxing and the kids had a great time exploring.
Look forward to coming back in the near future.
Perfect base to explore this part of Devon
We had a great stay, This very well designed split level barn conversion makes use of every space and still feels spacious. We really enjoyed staying here especially cooking with the Aga stove and log fires. Make sure you ask the owners about any planned power outages, as they may forget to warn you as was our experience.
A great place to be!
The barn is nice. Is has a lot of space and we had a lovely stay. We enjoyed our stay in Devon. Beautiful walkings in Dartmoor, lovely villages and nice people. Helen and Peter, the owners, are friendly. It’s a quiet place with lots of nature and history.
We went to Horsebrook Barn in July and it was fantastic. The weather was great and the area is wonderful to explore, also with children. The Barn is well equipped and the furnishing is lovely. We also enjoyed the cream tea we got after our arrival and the owners were super nice. So all in all I can absolutely recommend Horsebrook Barn!
Blessed with lovely weather, comfortable and well furnished accommodation, peaceful countryside, dark and quiet nights. Easy reach of moors, sea, fascinating historic towns and villages. Kind and considerate owner - what more could we ask.
