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.

Easter 2024

By Heather M and family on 25-May-2024

Thank you very much for ensuring we had a good holiday. We enjoyed the house, its beautiful setting and the lovely scenery around. Lovely place to stay, the house has a lot of character and Colin was so kind and helpful, wonderful surroundings. Thank you

Christmas 2023

By Nigel and Bernie B. on 25-May-2024

The property itself is stunning with wonderful views over the moor. We arrived on a cold, wet windy day but when opening the door into the manor we were welcomed with a wonderful heated accommodation. The layout comprised of a kitchen, lounge and dining room in one area and then a large separate lounge with television and wood burner in the other area all on the ground floor. Colin ensured that we had a constant supply of logs for the wood burner. The accommodation for 12 people was no problem with comfortable beds and good shower/toilet facilities. I imagine in the summer the views over the moors will be stunning and would make for a pleasant walk to the Rugglestone Inn plus easy access to other areas of the moors. If you book this property, you will not be disappointed. We enjoyed it that much, we have already booked it for 2024.
