About the property

Hatchwell Lodge is part of Hatchwell Hall, a grade 2 listed Dartmoor Farmhouse

Hatchwell lodge is a beautifully furnished hideaway on Dartmoor. The warm interior with its wood burning stove and endless beautiful touches provide a romantic setting to close the curtains and relax with films, books and a hot bath. However if you venture outside there is a garden that is south facing, where you can see the far reaching views of the moor. The welcome folder details walks over the moor, though I would head straight to the Rugglestone Inn! Widecombe in the moor is less than 2 miles and has a National trust property, Inns and shops. The main attraction however is the whole of the Dartmoor National Park with its unspoilt landscape, wild ponies and strangely highland cattle. Even driving to Hatchwell is an experience, if you are like me you will stop on route just to take in the views...truly breathtaking in all seasons.

Hatchwell lodge is perfectly located to explore the wide open spaces and enjoy Devon most incredible vistas. There are super pubs and places to visit and the lodge is full of suggestions. However this is a special little hide away and with its lovely wam interior, full of interesting touches it will be very hard to drag yourselves away.

Lovely lodge in beautiful Dartmoor National Park - A real escape!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Hatchwell Lodge and would love to return.

Isabelle (the owner) was lovely - really friendly and helpful, leaving us completely to ourselves but happy to give advice, local knowledge and to have a friendly chat if we wanted. She very kindly dropped a bird book at our door after we mentioned that we had seem some interesting birds and let us store our bikes in one of her outbuildings. (These were amongst other kindnesses that were over and above what we expected).

The lodge itself is beautiful and, I have to say, even nicer than it looks in the pictures on the website. The bathroom, for instance, is a lovely, bright, traditional room, beautifully decorated and with a very deep bath in which you can really stretch out.

There's loads of space in every room and plenty of room to store luggage etc. The lodge is really sunny with a fantastic atmosphere.

The view is terrific: the lodge looks onto a sizeable garden that in turn overlooks a valley. The garden is full of birdsong and busy with life with buzzards and even ravens flying over, nuthatches in the big tree in the garden and assorted songbirds nesting while we were there in late March.

Widecombe in the moor is only a short drive or a pleasant but challenging cycle away - beware the hills!

We had a lovely week here exploring the Torrs, local villages, cycling the trails from Princetown and nature-watching. Widecombe is a nice village with some good shops. The cafe on the green does terrific breakfasts and the Rugglestone pub is rightly renowned for its food and atmosphere. But we were mostly out and about on the moor.

A delightful week in a lovely place - we'd definitely return to Hatchwell Lodge and can't recommend it highly enough.

Fantastic cottage in a beautiful part of Dartmoor

  • 5 of 5

Had an absolutely fantastic time on our mininoon at this cottage, which is situated in a beautiful location on Dartmoor. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need, plus there was a lovely cream tea waiting for us on arrival! The cottage is well located very close to the village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor and a short drive from Bovey Tracy and Mortenhampstead. The Gateway Tea Room in Mortenhampstead is a well worth the drive. The owners gave us some good tips on where to eat and good pubs nearby. The cottage is very peaceful itself and has been finished to a very high standard with a excellent wood burning stove that keeps the place very cosy. Highly recommended.
