Beauty on Dartmoor

A stunning, recently renovated, cottage

About

 

Dartmoor Coach House is a beautiful, recently renovated cottage situated in the heart of Dartmoor. With stunning views across the moors this charming cottage provides a rural serenity that is rare to find in the UK.

 

The cottage is a mile from the picturesque village of Widecombe in the Moor, which provides pubs, cafes and tourist favourites. In the immediate vicinity are endless walks and trail rides for all your adventure needs.

 

Just next door you will find the owners of the property, who are there to help if any emergencies happen. They are also happy to point you in the right direction if you want any tips on where to explore!

 

Prices start at £325 for 2 people for a minimum 3 night stay.


Features

 2 bedrooms

One beautiful master bedroom has stunning views across Dartmoor. Second room has twin beds.

1 Bathroom

A large family bathroom services both bedrooms, complete with bath / shower - perfect to wash away those muddy walks.

Utility Room

The full service utility room can wash and dry clothes as needed. As well as provide a space for bike and outdoor equipment storage.

Table Football

The cottage offers fun for down time, including table football and family games.

Wood burning stove

A wood burning stove in the living room provides added warmth on winter nights (and the occasional chilly summer one too).

Dog Friendly

We will accept up to 2 well-behaved dogs. Please take care of the furniture as well as clean and dry muddy / wet paws. Thank you!

Flora and Fauna

 

The valley in which the Coach House is situated is blessed with an abundance of flora and fauna.

 

Three species of wild deer can be spotted (red, fallow and roe) together with badgers; squirrels; foxes; stoats; rabbits and (occasionally) otters.  Along with buzzards there are ravens, woodpeckers, nuthatches, wagtails, 5 species of tits, chaffinches, siskins, dippers, goosanders, mandarin ducks, herons, peregrine falcons, sparrowhawks, merlins, stonechats, kingfishers, numerous tawny owls and (in Spring and Summer) blackcaps, flycatchers, redstarts and chiffchaffs.

 

In May there is an explosion of bluebells in the woods and hillsides, followed by 1000s of foxgloves in June. There are many types of moss and ferns and if you look hard enough you may find wild orchids.  Out on the moor the gorse and heather provide spectacular colour.  Many of the trees around the Coach House - Oak, Beech, Cedar, Hemlock and Douglas fir - are over 200 years old and are impressively tall - over 130ft!

This has been the perfect location for our combined 150 years birthday celebration!! We managed to indulge ourselves thoroughly, despite the slightly disappointing glare of the Red Kite!! Thank you!

We’ve had a fabulous week on the Costa del Dartmoor!!  I think our favourite thing has been just sitting enjoying the peace and quiet surrounded by the incredible natural surroundings.  It’s literally been the perfect week and we can’t thank you enough for providing one of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed :)))

Lovely comfortable cottage.  Enjoyed listening to the cuckoos and very noisy owls some nights.  Rock Inn and Rugglestone Inn very good.  (Old Inn seemed good too!)
