“The perfect getaway cottage”
Reviewed August 20, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Dashel Cottage is a comfortable size for a family of 4, and is equipped with just about everything you need (including Sky and wifi). There's overflow fridge in the barn and the table tennis was a hit with our children. The location is quiet and idyllic, with occasional farm animals trotting passed. It has an enclosed private garden with patio table. Walks were great, the locally Widecombe in the Moo (missing r from sign post) is worth a go, stopping at the popular Rugglestone Inn (parking available) for good food and craft ales. Bellever Tor is an excellent walk parking at the E River Dart 5.6 miles away. Venetia and Norman are very accommodating, quick to answer any questions you have - thank you for such a lovely stay at your cottage, we can't wait to come again.

“A lovely refreshing stay”
Reviewed July 29, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

A perfect cosy little gateaway cottage for a weary city dweller. Venetia has been amazing in providing directions and tips even before we arrived at the cottage. The cottage is situated in the middle of the dartmoor national park in an idyllic setting.
Situated very close to Widecombe on Moor, car is strongly advised. There are quite a few walking trails starting from the back of the cottage.
The cottage is nicely stocked and has internet connection. Mobile phone reception would be absent or at best patchy.
There are open spaces for barbecue and a nice pond just opposite the cottage with lots of ducks and fowls. The children would enjoy the natural setting.
The cottage is located conveniently to reach the attractions in Dartmoor and the drives through Dartmoor national forest are highly recommended.
Widecombe On the Moor has some nice pubs and eating places. The main pub even boasts a resident ghost!!

“Really wonderful stay”
Reviewed July 19, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We had the most wonderful stay and Venetia and Norman made us feel extremely welcome. The cottage is in one of the most idyllic settings on Dartmoor and they have a lovely menagerie of animals that were great for city folk like ourselves. The cottage was well equipped and the garden is really pretty. We really enjoyed our welcome gifts too. It was an excellent base for our walking and we will definitely be returning. Thank you both so much.
