“ I have never before, in my long and eclectic career, been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty as I experienced filming War Horse on Dartmoor.” Steven Spielberg.

Lower Willsworthy Cottage

Peter Tavy


A luxury escape on Dartmoor recommended by Countryfile Magazine and Barbour Clothing

Offering luxury, peace, tranquillity and stunning all round views of Dartmoor, our cottage is the perfect holiday escape for couples, families or friends.

The holiday cottage is a traditional converted stone barn, situated within 40 beautiful acres of private grounds. We pride ourselves on keeping it in excellent condition, making sure that we provide the perfect home away from home for you, your family and friends.

The cottage sleeps six people and comprises three large bedrooms, including an en-suite king-size master room and a large family bathroom. There is an open-plan kitchen, dining area and lounge with a woodburner.

All of the cottage accommodation is located on the first floor, except for the twin bedroom which is situated on the ground floor. The great benefit of this arrangement is that each and every room has a wonderful countryside view.

Luxury bedding, handmade soaps and fluffy towels are provided, including free unlimited Wi-Fi.

There are 40 acres at Lower Willsworthy to lose yourself in.

You can relax and unwind by the Willsworthy Brook in the secluded private guest gardens or enjoy some lovely walks and picnics around the grounds. There is even your very own stretch of the splendid River Tavy to enjoy (with single bank fishing rights), where you can take a dip in several rock pools – ideal for cooling off on a hot summer’s day. The lake and its surrounding area is the perfect place for wildlife lovers, where one can sit and relax, whilst taking in an abundance of nature all around.

In the evening, why not enjoy the stunning views of Dartmoor and gorgeous sunsets from the courtyard seating area.
