Wonderful setting.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a fantastic location and the view is outstanding. It is a cosy cottage, but has everything you need in it. This is our second time staying at Windtor and we hope to be back.

There was only a little negative which was a shame. You have to leave by 10 am on the morning of departure, which is more than acceptable. The cleaners turned up at 09.55 and waited outside, staring at us, which we found quite off putting as we were loading up the car. Apart from that little blip, everything was fantastic.

Perfect as usual

  • 5 of 5

The house is always a charming place to get away from it all. It's just far enough away from anything touristy to give peace and quiet, but not so far away that you have to drive for hours to do anything.

There's plenty to do, both in Widecombe and around it, including plenty of walks, and a lovely farm shop about 5-10 minutes drive towards Newton Abbot.

I can honestly say each time we go, it's a home away from home. You'd never know it was a holiday home, not too posh, it feels like a family home. Obviously it's very well taken care of, very clean, and there's always some every day essentials in the kitchen cupboards.

The only problem we had was needing more time to do everything we wanted. We'll certainly be back again.

Comfy cottage with superb views and excellent base for walking

  • 5 of 5

We found the cottage to be cosy and well equipped. It was good to have a secure garden for our dog. It's a perfect place to walk 'from the door', and the view from the lounge was stunning. We had an excellent meal at the Rugglestone Inn and would happily stay in the cottage again.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Rugglestone at 1 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Rugglestone at 1 Miles Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

The cottage is about 45 minutes from the South Devon beaches but some brave guests have been known to swim in the local Dart river.

Travel:

Windtor Cottage is best accessed from the A38 through Bovey Tracey and then Haytor, following the signs to Widecombe. You pass through the village and continue south till you come to Lady Meadow Terrace on the right hand side. Climb the hill past the row of houses until you see Windtor which is the second from the top of the road. The postal address of the cottage is Windtor Cottage, Dunstone, Widecombe.

Distances:

Bovey Tracey 15 minutes, Ashburton 15 minutes, Exeter 35 minutes, Plymouth 45 minutes.

Further Details:

The Shop on the Green in Widecombe carries some essentials. It also serves as an ‘out-reach’ Post Office. There are two pubs, the Old Inn in the village and the Rugglestone on the road out of the village towards Venton. Both serve excellent food and beverages. The National Trust shop and Church House are worth a visit as is the magnificent 14th Century St Pancras Church. Both Tesco and Waitrose deliver to the cottage and many of the local smallholders sell vegetables in season. There is some 02 reception near the cottage but none of the other providers are available in the valley. The River Dart Country Park with Zip Wires and an assault course is a few minutes’ drive from the cottage as is Dartmeet and South Devon Railway. The Two Moors Way runs across the top of Wind Tor and this takes you right through to Exmoor. We are also fortunate to be a few miles from the beginning of the Templer Way. We are about 45 minutes from the sea.
