Fridge, dishwasher, TV with DVD, WiFi, Fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot available on request, Off road parking for two cars. Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Region: Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea? Town: Widecombe is tucked away in a Dartmoor valley with the spectacular moorland and tors rising up on all sides, making it a perfect location for walkers, mountain bikers, riders or those that love dramatic landscapes. The village is made up of a pretty mixture of granite built houses and a lovely old church which is known as the cathedral of the moor. There are a couple of good food pubs, a café for indulgent cream teas and shops. Widecombe famously hosts Widecombe Fair every September, where you can see displays of livestock, local produce, vintage farm machinery and even a bale tossing competition. Further afield is Bovey Tracey – home to the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and worthy of a visit. Dartmoor National Park has the greatest number of archaeological remains in Europe and there are Neolithic tombs, mystical stone circles and abandoned medieval farmsteads to explore. Conan Doyle was inspired to write his classic novel The Hound of the Baskervilles and it is easy to imagine Sherlock Holmes wandering the wild moorland terrain, along with the wild and beautiful Dartmoor ponies.More
