    • “The window of a room was impossible to open and it seems that it was not a recent problem But for the rest it was a nice and quiet place to discover Dartmoor”

    Mr Cambier, 5650, July 2018

    • “What a lovely cottage and a beautiful setting. It is a very relaxing and calming place. We did a lot of walking up to the tors and short walks with our dog. We loved exploring Dartmoor right from our cottage. The interior of the cottage is totally perfect. The kitchen is very well equipped. Unfortunately the main bathroom has a shower only in the bathtub, which is unusual for Europeans but an experience. We loved cooking our breakfast on the agar, which was a good start for the day. The only unpleasant thing was, we didn’t get any confirmation or further details or informations from helpfulholidays after paying the balance. Also we didn’t know that we would find the cottage at ‚Holwell Cottages‘, up to than our nav sat took us there. We contacted Debbie, the wonderful caretaker, who told us the code for the key. But all in one we loved it and it was a brilliant week and we‘d definitely come back.”

    Mrs König, 85445, July 2018

    • “Very good value. Perfect location. Beautiful views. Cozy cottage. Really comfy beds. A wonderful holiday!”

    Ms Horn, London, March 2018

    • “Excellent accommodation, a very hot week and no shade from the sun at the rear of the property, would recommend the provision of a sun umbrella at least. Could hear scratching in the roof most nights and assumed it was House Martins, but found bats had found their way into the middle bedroom during the night which was a little unsettling. We returned home on the Thursday instead of Friday.”

    Mr Massey, Wellington, June 2018

Regional Information

WIDECOMBE-IN-THE-MOOR Widecombe is tucked away in a Dartmoor valley with the spectacular moorland and tors rising up on all sides, making it a perfect location for walkers, mountain bikers, riders or those that love dramatic landscapes. The village is made up of a pretty mixture of granite built houses and a lovely old church which is known as the cathedral of the moor. There are a couple of good food pubs, a café for indulgent cream teas and shops. Widecombe famously hosts Widecombe Fair every September, where you can see displays of livestock, local produce, vintage farm machinery and even a bale tossing competition. Further afield is Bovey Tracey – home to the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and worthy of a visit. Dartmoor National Park has the greatest number of archaeological remains in Europe and there are Neolithic tombs, mystical stone circles and abandoned medieval farmsteads to explore. Conan Doyle was inspired to write his classic novel The Hound of the Baskervilles and it is easy to imagine Sherlock Holmes wandering the wild moorland terrain, along with the wild and beautiful Dartmoor ponies.
