Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
A luxury 5 star romantic cottage for couples wanting a holiday in the heart of Dartmoor. Underfloor heating keeps the whole cottage lovely and warm. This completely re-built detached barn has been lovingly handcrafted with local oak finished to the top of the range specification, professionally designed and furnished to delight the most discerning visitor to Dartmoor. The uninterrupted views from the private garden and sun terrace over surrounding pastureland towards Dartmoor Tors are breathtakingly beautiful.
A walkers paradise with walks in every direction from the door, with riding stables just down the road for a stunning trek across Dartmoor.
This is a supremely peaceful place to stay, set just off a sleepy lane - and you may see Dartmoor Ponies passing the gate en route for the hills - yet you are within easy reach of many of South Devon's main attractions. A 5 Minute level walk takes you to the welcoming local pub, The Rugglestone Inn, which serves "real ale" and scrumptious food and the village of Widecombe-In-The- Moor, famous for its annual fair is a further 1/2 mile stroll. Visitors enjoy free-range eggs from our tiny flock of hens. Visit in Autumn or Winter for cosy evenings round the wood fire - and come to walk in all seasons in fabulously lovely Dartmoor countryside.
The double bedroom is beautifully equipped with a handmade oak king sized bed from Dartmoor Carpentry , Egyptian cotton bed sheets and a sumptuously styled en-suite bathroom with a double ended roll top bath. Fluffy towels are provided. With energy conservation in mind there is endless supplies of hot water from a mixture of solar power and gas fired heating. A cot can be provided.
The oak and granite kitchen, by Dartmoor Carpentry, is fully equipped and includes a dishwasher, microwave and washer / dryer.
Widecombe Cottage is stylishly furnished throughout and the living room has comfortable settees, oak flooring, beautiful rugs, central wood burner, underfloor heating, LCD TV, DVD player and music centre. A wide selection of DVDs is provided if you fancy a night in by the fire.

The West Country region
Dartmoor - Purple, heather clad moorland, wide open landscapes, rushing rivers and obscure stone tors shape the landscape of Dartmoor. But that is just one small part of a big picture.
There are rolling valleys, bogs and wetland, waterfalls and well trodden paths, ancient, eery forests and lonely ruins. Sometimes ominous, challenging, extreme, sometimes welcoming, heart warming; always breathtaking, always changing, the landscape of Dartmoor is alive in every sense of the word.
Whether you're looking for a challenging trek across windswept moors, or just a relaxing stroll through secluded woods, you've come to the right place.
Dartmoor has it all. Blaze your own trail, be a pioneer, explore and take the less trodden route. If you know your way around an OS map, download one of the many map routes below, gather your kit and head out the door.
You want picture postcard Dartmoor villages with thatched cottages and rambling lanes? Try Lustleigh or Moretonhampstead. How about historic market towns with traditional stores, tearooms and crafts? Head to Tavistock, Bovey Tracey or Okehampton. What about something a bit different, a little bit quirky? It's got to be Widecombe-in-the-Moor. Maybe you want folklore, and Dartmoor myths and legends? Princetown is the place to be.
Tiny hamlets, bustling towns, or pretty villages, Dartmoor is thriving, lived in, real.
