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.

Location description from owner

The England 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.

“Great break”

Reviewed 4 Mar 2017

Great little cottage in fab location, couple of pubs and village nearby, great place to stay for exploring Dartmoor.

“Enjoy the wonders of nature at this blissful cottage.”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2016

If you are seeking a place to relax and enjoy the wonders of nature, Widecombe Cottage is the place for you. Beck’s wonderful homemade cake, wine eggs and milk welcomed us as we arrived. The cottage has everything you could wish for with (most important) a very comfortable bed. There isn’t a mobile signal (hooray!) in the village but there is excellent Wi- Fi reception in the cottage. You boil the kettle on a gas ring, and the deep roll top baths shower arrangement, although very ornate, could be a challenge for the older generation. However, this is a small price to pay for a slice of heaven… and Beck’s cake. Sitting on the rear private patio with our first cup of coffee we were enchanted by an aerial ballet of swallow's swifts and house martins swooping down low over the lawn. In the field beyond, Dartmoor ponies and cattle, each with playful offspring grazed contentedly. In the evening, undulating narrow fields with well maintained hedges melted into the distant horizon. The clip-clop of an occasional horse and rider from a nearby stable and the crowing of a (thank goodness distant) cockerel completed the picture. Bliss!! The Rugglestone Inn, a short stroll down the narrow country lane is a must. With a large choice of real ales, lagers and a very tempting varied menu, it is a memorable compliment to this delightful cottage.
