“Fantastic Family Break”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Eleven of us visited WhiteLady House to celebrate 2 birthdays - we were a party of three generations and both the house and location provided plenty for everyone to enjoy!
The house was spacious, with lots of space for us to spreadout into. Part of our stay included a wonderful catered birthday dinner for 14 which was arranged for us by Carol, the owner of the house - the dining room just perfect for such an occasion.

There was lots to do - from walking the Lydford Gorge which was on our doorstep, visiting the local towns and sights, or going walking on Dartmoor.... and then when we got back to the house we could laze in the garden or in the hot-tub - or if a little more energetic have a table tennis championship!!

A great place to stay!

“Magic”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in May 2013

As a family of 11 we booked into Whitelady House to celebrate three milestone birthdays, and ended up celebrating a wedding too!

The house is beautifully decorated throughout, retaining a lovely cosy atmosphere where you can relax and unwind in front of a choice of two wood burning stoves, or out in the hot tub. It has everything three generations of guest could possibly ask for, including space if you needed peace and quiet!

Carol, the owner, could not have been more helpful, or thoughtful, throughout the processes of trying to arrange a memorable birthday meal and, subsequently, a small wedding reception at the House. She introduced us to chef Peter Gorton, whose outside catering arm came to the house and produced the most stunning four course meal for us. She provided us with contacts from taxis to marquee companies in an effort to assist us organising the reception from Kent. It felt like nothing was too much trouble.

Our young nephew summed it up in one sentence close to the end of the holiday “I feel like a millionaire!”. We all did!

So glad you enjoyed your stay, and I know how difficult it is to arrange things from afar, so am always happy to supply local knowledge and book anything for guests, whether a special celebratory meal with a superb chef to fabulous horse riding adventures to explore Dartmoor and of course I do love a wedding!

“Everything you could wish for...................”
Reviewed 30 July 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I stayed here with my husband, daughter, son in law, his mother and our four grandchildren in May for youngest grandson's eighteenth birthday. So ages ranged from 18 to 81! Whitelady House had everything to suit the needs of us all - from the tabletennis, croquet and hot tub to Dartmoor on the doorstep, plus Lydford Gorge. Wonderful walks for the dog too. Can't remember when we enjoyed a break this much.

“The most perfect girly weekend, gorgeous house and stunning surroundings!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I booked Whitelady house for my hen party and a group of 12 of us stayed including my mum and her sisters. The house was beautiful, very well decorated and plenty of space. The hot tub was brilliant and there were lots of other added extras like the table tennis and wii. The 2 lounges were great if people wanted to do different things and the dining room was perfect for all of us. Carol was brilliant, incredibly helpful and can suggest walks/bike rides etc. Right on the doorstop. She also offers a service where she cooks for you in the house and can arrange other things too. She very kindly left som champagne and brownies for our arrival, a lovely touch. The gorge and waterfall were right on the doorstep and I would highly recommend a vist. Carol can provide you with some free national trust passes. There are plenty of pubs nearby and great activities like tree-surfing, canoeing and horse riding nclose by. Tavistock is a short drive and great for a night out. All in all a highly memorable weekend enjoyed by everyone!
