Description

Ancient and remote with glorious views, a comfortable house that sleeps 10 – plus up to 2 young children. Visit the beaches, hike from the door…

(PLEASE NOTE FROM 2022 WE ARE ONLY LETTING OUT THE MAIN PART OF THE HOUSE, WHICH SLEEPS 10 ADULTS AND 2 CHILDREN)

It's the sort of place where you long to pull on your boots or jump on a horse and head for the horizon. This historic 400 year old Manor House, forms part of the 6 Manors of Widecombe. This important Manor has been in existence since early medieval times. It is situated half way up the hill in an isolated and quiet position, yet is within easy reach of local amenities. The views across Dartmoor and Widecombe are among the best in Devon. The property is set within its own grounds of about 30 acres and has direct access to the moor, some of which belongs to the property.

There are five main bedrooms (two with doubles, 3 with twins), two stories and an attic, linked by a medieval stone stair. There is also one further small bedroom which can either be used for babies or young children on fold out beds. This room brings the total capacity to 12.
Note the wonderful granite flags as you enter the hall, and, through the window ahead, your first glimpse of the moor. In the sitting room, cosy with a wood-burner and TV with Sky – are oatmeal walls and comfy sofas. There's a kitchen for cooks (an Aga and a separate hob and oven), a lovely long oak table that seats 12, and a sun room with views you'll never want to leave. There is also a utility room and boot room.
Outside, lawns for children to tumble on, paddocks all around, and a table and chairs for the setting sun. After a day fixing tees to greens (golf is close) or building castles in the sand, how gratifying to come home to fresh flowers, crisp linen and fluffy white towels. What's more, Widecombe, home to the Rugglestone Inn, is a ten-minute walk downhill – a babbling brook, beer from the cask and chips to die for.

Dogs are welcome as long as they are dried off before entering the main house (an extra charge is payable for dogs).

Please contact me for prices of holidays for less than 7 nights. Please note during peak times the minimum number of nights is 7.

We are a family of 12, from 68 to 1 year old, and we all really enjoyed to stay in this huge, beautiful, comfy and peaceful house, with wonderful gardens and amazing landscapes and walks. Kind of paradise...! Delahaye, Belgium Jul 2018

The manor house is big and solid has a great setting on the valley above Widecombe. We loved the walk to the Rugglestone Inn and the opportunity to walk straight onto open moor. The location is central to Dartmoor attractions, and the house is big and complicated enough to lose people from time to time. We needed the wood burners, but the rooms were warm and the layout with multiple living rooms worked well for our family. The entrance to the driveway was a challenge at first when approached from Widecombe, but is much easier from the moor. We had a lovely holiday and hope we can revisit soon. Paul, London

Blackslade Manor is a very large house located near the top of a hill & looking down on a beautiful valley & the fabulous village of Widecombe on the Moor. The house is very large, we had 11 adults & 3 younger children in our party & there was more than enough inside space & lots of outside space for us to enjoy & not feel "on top of each other". The house is not luxury but it is well appointed with good facilities & nice furniture, it's very comfortable & homely so we all relaxed immediately on arrival. The garden terrace overlooking Widecombe was a very popular place, it ticked all our boxes Andy, Lowestoft Jun 2017
