Whitelady House is a large country retreat, accommodating up to 12 guests in style & comfort. This private house is ideal for exclusive anniversary or birthday celebrations, wedding and hen parties, reunions, family get-togethers or just for that special holiday. The house has been renovated and lovingly refurbished, exuding style and character with oak beams, inglenook fireplaces and exposed stone work, whilst retaining a homely, relaxed atmosphere.
We provide a memorable venue for a fun & relaxing house party, either self-catering or catered. As an alternative to self catering we can remove the burden of preparing and cooking for a large group by providing a fully catered service where we will create and serve meals at the house. Sit back and enjoy the company of friends & family, while we arrange everything for you.
Situated close to Tavistock, down a private drive, the huge expanse of Dartmoor is 100yds from the entrance, and the National Trust's Lydford Gorge is at the bottom of the garden.

Gorgeous house, every room beautifully presented. Stunning kitchen and dining room. Fabulous open fire for cosy evenings. Having Lydford Gorge right next door was a real bonus, as was the hot-tub! Lovely welcome from Carol, the homemade scones were much appreciated.
We agree having Lydford Gorge at the bottom of the garden is fabulous and Dartmoor is also only a couple of hundred yards from the front gate - perfect for walking, cycling or riding.

"A great value house for large groups, you won't be disappointed!"
We stayed in Whitelady House for my friends hen weekend and it was just perfect. The whole house is beautifully presented, with plenty of space and a wonderful dining room. All of the bedrooms are a really good size so no one felt like they had drawn the short straw. Carol the owner was extremely helpful, even booking some of the evening entertainment for us! Carol also cooked us the most wonderful 3 course meal on the Saturday night and everyone commented how delicious it was. The hot tub is a great added bonus! Be aware you are in the country and mobile signal is not that good in the house but you do have access to a land line for this reason and we didn't find it a problem.
