Just to clarify, this TA page applies to (& has photos & reviews for) two cottages; the Oak Barn & Widecombe Cottage. We stayed in the latter; the smaller of the two. Both cottages are situated in a farm alongside B&B facilities & the owners house. Widecombe Cottage is very pretty, clean & well appointed with a lovely wood burner... More

I took my family of four to stay in 'The Oak Barn' which is directly behind 'Widecombe Cottage' in Feb 2013. The barn itself is a stunning renovation and everything from the bathroom and bedding to the kitchen is top quality. You can tell that no expense has been spared. The owner Richard has excelled himself in creating a truly... More

We were impressed with the high quality of the cottage, from the conversion/renovation through to the equipment. So often cottages for two are very cramped or have a tiny and poorly equipped kitchen, but this felt roomy and comfortable. The bedroom was large and the bed generously sized and comfy. Although we weren't too lucky with weather, we enjoyed several... More

Widecombe cottage is a wonderful place to get away from it all. It is completed to a very high specification and has a warm, cosy atmosphere. We found Richard really helpful and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the cottage and loved the long walks and pub lunches around this beautiful little village. There is a riding stable just... More

Stayed in the Oak Barn for the weekend. Couldn't have been more thrilled with everything about it. The bathrooms, the sauna the beds and bedding were total luxury. The barn was so warm is was easy to forget we had sub zero temperatures outside. Upstairs was just fab. The kitchen was really well equiped, it was much more than a... More

The perfect holiday starts with discovering the amazing views along the road leading to Oak Barn, which fits the description of luxury accomodation in every possible way. The cottage is stunning and beautifully designed, with a sense of quality and refinement, as well as 5 star facilities. Designer bathrooms complete with heated towel rails, a beautifully equiped kitchen, outstanding quality... More

We stayed for a week and wished it had been longer! The cottage is right in the middle of dartmoor with great views. It's also a five minutes walk from a gorgeous and welcoming country pub with great beer and great food and a 45 minute drive to the coast. The cottage itself is really cosy and high spec -... More

Absolutely loved our stay here. It's a great spot for getting out walking on Dartmoor and on one of the wetter days we found the coast wasn't too far away either. Found our hosts helpful when necessary but respectiful of privacy too. Really felt like a home from home as soon as we'd settled in. Should also mention that having... More
