  • “The location of the cottage is fabulous with walks straight out onto the moor.”

    The cottage was clean, the views are superb and the bed was really comfortable. I enjoyed cooking on the Sandyford and was grateful for its warmth in the cooler evenings. We had everything that we needed. ...

    The cottage was clean, the views are superb and the bed was really comfortable. I enjoyed cooking on the Sandyford and was grateful for its warmth in the cooler evenings. We had everything that we needed. I had been concerned about previous negative reviews, but having stayed there I think these were due to the fact the cottage is marketed as "luxury 5 star", which it is not. It possibly was 10 years ago but now needs some refurbishment. The sofas have definitely seen better days and some fixtures/fittings are in need of repair. BUT, it is a lovely Dartmoor cottage and none of the above detracted from us having a fabulous holiday. We would definitely stay there again, we loved it!

About the location


Bovey Tracey 7.4 miles; Newton Abbot 11.6 miles; Torquay 19.1 miles.

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.
