    This is an amazing property to rent. It is a stunning cottage, very well equipped and tastefully decorated throughout. It has fabulous views and is in a great location to travel around South Devon, within easy reach of gorgeous beaches (particularly in South Hams) and lovely Devonshire villages. The A38 Express also gives easy access to many stores and shopping outlets. The cottage is situated on a farm adjacent to the lovely owners Becky, Chris & their lovely children Amelia & Joshua. They are so friendly & helpful and are really chilled. Chris is a retired successful NH Jockey and on the farm they breed and break in race horses. The new stable built this year is absolutely stunning. The horses were an added wonderful experience to our holiday. They are magnificent and I fell totally in love with all of them. It has been so interesting listening to Chris and learning about the racing industry and although we have had a great time visiting the various beaches and places during the day I have to admit that I couldn't wait to come back later in the day to have a 'horse hug' with Rex, Boo & Charlie! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this beautiful holiday let. It is a totally unique experience and so dog friendly which is the main reason we booked it. We will definitely return and wish Chris & Becky all the success with their business - they certainly deserve it!

The property

Ashburton 2 miles.

This cosy cottage is attached to the owners’ farmhouse, in a rural location on the outskirts of Ashburton in the Dartmoor National Park.

Situated on a quiet farm that breeds and trains racehorses, along with keeping miniature Shetlands, this is the perfect spot for the family to enjoy the beauty of inland Devon, being surrounded by acres of rolling green pastures grazed by ponies.

This lovely cottage feels warm and welcoming yet the oak floors, exposed stone and inglenook fireplace give the cottage a lot of character.

The décor is tasteful and modern and the woodburner is ideal for toasting your toes after a day walking on Dartmoor.

On the first floor there is a spacious king-size double bedroom, plus a twin bedroom (or super king-size double on request) and bathroom on the ground floor.

Also on the ground floor is a kitchen, along with a sitting room with dining area.

The property boasts a private lawned garden with a patio that backs on to the property’s 25 acres of land which boasts fantastic views.

There is a public footpath running alongside the property which leads to Ashburton, a 20 minute walk, where there are excellent shops and pubs.

The pub in the charming Dartmoor village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor is highly recommended, as is Ilsington village pub.

In this beautiful rural heartland of south Devon you are spoilt for choice when it comes to farm food and local ales.

Stay with a friendly family of racehorse breeders who are incredibly welcoming and helpful and be inspired by the natural beauty of Devon.

Whether it’s a private break away or an adventurous Dartmoor family trip, Whiddon Well caters to all.

About the location

ASHBURTON

Newton Abbot 8 miles; Torquay 17 miles; Plymouth 25 miles

The ancient Stannary town of Ashburton lies on the southern slopes of Dartmoor and is an ideal spot from which to explore the rugged high moors to the North and a beautiful coastline to the South. The scenery in this area of South Devon is glorious in all weathers and offers visitors opportunities for walking, pony trekking, canoeing, fishing and lazing on the beach. Ashburton has some interesting artisan shops and with its interesting history and museum, has built a reputation for its high standard of antiques and fine collectables outlets. It also has lovely tea rooms, a wine bar and a fantastic food deli providing fresh fish and olives. In the surrounding area, Dartmoor has many picturesque villages and hamlets with old thatched cottages and ancient churches, surrounded by a patchwork of fields and woodland. Lustleigh, North Bovey, Chagford and Widecombe- in- the- Moor are fine examples. The attractive seaside town of Teignmouth is a half hour drive and the popular Blackpool Sands, although a little further down the coast, is one of South Devon's most beautiful natural treasures. An award-winning privately managed 'Blue Flag' family beach with turquoise blue sea giving it an almost Mediterranean feel. So whether it is moor or coast that you’re seeking for your getaway, Ashburton is a really central town from which to be based.
