About the property

Five Beds, Three Bathrooms Luxurious Family House With Stunning Moorland Views

This old Devon farmhouse, with its thick walls and huge fireplaces, has been updated to provide luxurious family accommodation including range cooker and sumptuous four poster beds, but without losing any of its quirky features and country house charm. It is set back from the lane and surrounded by its own land and gardens. On the ground floor there is a large family kitchen with four oven aga, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, also separate toilet and washing machine. The family room leads off of the kitchen, with comfy chairs, spacious eating area, wood burning stove and entertainment centre with flat screen TV, DVD and CD players.

There is also a large living room ideal for relaxation with sofas gathered around the fireplace,another TV and music centre.One twin bedroom is on this level, ideal for younger or elderly people who prefer not to climb stairs. This bedroom has unique ensuite with full bath.

The character stone staircase leads on one side to a gorgeous double bedroom with four poster bed and fireplace. On the other side and through a quirky doorway is a twin room with TV that kids will adore. The family bathroom with bath is next along the passage, and then another double bedroom with en suite bathroom. At the end of the passage is a big double bedroom with huge four poster. All bedrooms have views out over the moor and are beautifully appointed with luxurious drapes and fresh white bedlinen.

The moorland vista from the garden is stunning, with different areas outside offering places to eat, drink and relax with pretty cottage planting and shrubs bordering the paths that lead to lawns for children's' games and sun loungers.

There is safe private parking with the invitation to leave the car and take a stroll along the quiet lanes,where traffic consists of moorland sheep and ponies, returning for a sundowner in the peaceful garden in the glow of a gorgeous Dartmoor sunset.

Shorter breaks of 3 and 4 nights are available, please contact us for details.

Lovely secluded cottage

  • 5 of 5

Really nice dwelling. There were 4 adults and 2 children in our party

Very spacious and everything had been thought of.

Would not hesitate to use again. If there's only two of you take a look at The Lodge next door

Lovely holiday

A lovely and characterful place to stay - recommended.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very cold weekend, (with snow!) nonetheless the house was cozy particularly with the woodburners on. Everything is very uneven and with low beams, wonky stairs and one exceptionally low doorway - delightful for our group but the more decrepit might find the upstairs rooms rather hard work, particularly with the very high four-posters, though the downstairs bedroom is perfect. There is a definite skill in aga cooking, and the uninitiated - like us - need to remember the problems of meals that require a hot oven and using the hotplates at the same time! But wonderful to have so many ovens to keep stuff warm in. We had a lovely snowy walk along the top and then down through grimspound and abandoned tin mines to Warren House Inn - not the most glamorous of pubs but friendly and with very adequate and speedy pub food. Would definitely consider coming again.

Hatchwell Hall

  • 5 of 5

Delightful property which lived up to the description on the website. Well appointed and equipped as well as being clean and well maintained. There were a few minor initial difficulties with the heating and the AGA but once these were sorted out everything was fine. Thank you for the thoughtful welcoming gifts they were much appreciated. The location on Dartmoor was perfect. We would not hesitate to recommend the property to friends and relatives.

Lovely place

  • 3 of 5

It was lovely, we had a great week and would certainly consider staying there again.

The dishwasher is far too small for the size of the house. One of the beds upstairs was on a slope and caused a lot of problems for our Uncle and Aunt who kept sliding across the bed every night! The dryer is not very good either and very bunged up with lint. We couldn't find the toilet rolls kept on the outside storage room and nearly had an emergency situation!

The view was beautiful though and we all had a lovely time!

The cottage is stunning - fabulous views, lots of room, great facilities.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the cottage. It suited everyone from the toddlers who enjoyed the garden and could be safely installed in the lounge furthest away from the kitchen to the grandparents who could sleep downstairs without having to negotiate the stone steps. We enjoyed the garden with the noisy sheep on shearing day and the playful foals. A truly wonderful place.

Hatchwell House is set in a beautiful rural location near Widecombe-in-the-Moor, probably the most famous village in the National Park.

The park itself covers 368 sq miles of wild rugged landscape, characterized by towering granite tors, paths and tracks winding through the heather and the stunning River Dart that gave the moor its name. It is therefore a favourite place of walkers, cyclists and riders,with access to The Two Moors Way and the Templar Way, as well as many other marked routes to suit all users.

The tors provide 'letter boxing' and geocaching, or simply just a wonderful vantage point to enjoy views all the way to the sea.

For the adventurous there is rock climbing, kayaking and canoeing, also angling. Plenty of information is available about how to access all activities, the main Visitor Centres being Princetown, Postbridge and Haytor.

The area is steeped in history, folklore and legend abound, revolving around the tin-mines, the remnants of bronze-age villages, the famous granite long houses and the infamous Dartmoor Prison. Small wonder the Moor has inspired so many of our best known authors and produced such great works of literature.

Wildlife and animal lovers can enjoy the sight of sheep, cattle and Dartmoor ponies roaming free, and take advantage of the work of the many artists and photographers who exhibit in the local area.

There are many great places to eat and drink, from cosy, welcoming pubs with pretty gardens to tea rooms and village cafés. Widecombe itself is well served by two excellent pubs, charming cafés and a local shop, as well as the 16th century church whose imposing architecture can be seen from miles around and has given it the title 'cathedral of the moor'. On the second Tuesday of September every year the village opens its arms to visitors from all over the world who come to experience the famous Widecombe Fair, where rural crafts, livestock, local food, drink and music are all on display as well as Uncle Tom Cobley and his legendary grey mare.

The unique atmosphere of the Moor with its ever-changing moods cannot fail to enchant, but should the visitor wish a different experience, the rest of glorious Devon is on offer, the only county in Britain with two contrasting coasts, the south tranquil and calm, the north wild and untamed, home of excellent surfing.

Devon has everything to offer, from peaceful thatched cottage villages to vibrant towns with night-life and fine dining, Dartmoor standing out as the ancient shining jewel in its crown.
