Widecombe Cottage


Luxury Self-Catering in the heart of Dartmoor

Widecombe Cottage at Lower Venton Farm is a cosy cottage perfect for couples who enjoy countryside activities or looking for a luxury romantic break in the heart of Dartmoor. A detached barn conversion, the one-bedroom cottage has been professionally designed and lovingly handcrafted using local oak finished to the highest standard, and stylishly furnished for your comfort.

The cottage has a terrace and garden views, features 1 bedroom with king-size bed, en-suite bathroom with a bath, a living room and a flat-screen TV.  The fully equipped kitchen includes a oven with gas hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and a washing machine – we even offer a fully stocked wine rack with an honesty payment arrangement!  Towels and bed linen are provided. There is also a comfortable seating area and a log burner, free private parking and free WiFi. Underfloor heating throughout ensures your comfort, whatever the weather!  Guests at the holiday cottage can enjoy hiking nearby, or make the most of the garden.

Lower Venton Farm is an especially peaceful place to stay, part of a small hamlet set just off a sleepy country lane.  Dartmoor ponies may be seen trotting past the gate and yet you are within easy reach of many of South Devon’s main attractions.  There are moorland walks from the doorstep and riding stables just down the lane offer stunning treks across Dartmoor for riders of all abilities.  A five-minute stroll takes you to “The Rugglestone Inn”, our closest local pub serving real ale and a menu featuring locally sourced, home cooked produce. The village of Widecombe In the Moor, well-known for its annual fair, is a further five-minute walk. There you can enjoy brunch or a cream tea at “The Cafe on the Green” or relax over a pint at “The Old Inn”.  Lower Venton has everything you could hope for in a country break.
