We had a really lovely stay at Higher Whiddon Farm! The house was very clean, comfortable and well equipped, and from the garden and kitchen you have a lovely view over the fields with horses. In the house there is also a lot of information available about the area. We certainly recommend this place to anybody who wants to explore Dartmoor National Park!
Ms Langenkamp

Peaceful tranquil location in picturesque Devon farming countryside, 5 minutes from Dartmoor! This is a lovely property we had no issues during our stay with family and our two dogs. The garden is not enclosed but for responsible owners with well trained dogs this is not an issue. The owners who live nearby are very very very friendly and helpful and there was not enough they could do to make us feel welcome and to make our stay stress free. Plenty to see and do nearby. A charming cottage in a beautiful location would defiantly recommend without hesitation.

An excellent cottage in a brilliant location for visiting Dartmoor.

The owners of the cottage were exceptionally hospitable and made us and our dogs feel very welcome. The location of the cottage provides an excellent base for the moors. The d?cor was also lovely. We will definitely return.
