Higher Whiddon Farm Whiddon Well

Ashburton 2 miles. This cosy cottage is attached to the owners' farmhouse, in a rural location on the outskirts of Ashburton in the Dartmoor National Park. Situated on a quiet farm that breeds and trains racehorses, along with keeping miniature Shetlands, this is the perfect spot for the family to enjoy the beauty of inland Devon, being surrounded by acres of rolling green pastures grazed by ponies. This lovely cottage feels warm and welcoming yet the oak floors, exposed stone and inglenook fireplace give the cottage a lot of character. The décor is tasteful and modern and the woodburner is ideal for toasting your toes after a day walking on Dartmoor. On the first floor there is a spacious king-size double bedroom, plus a twin bedroom (or super king-size double on request) and bathroom on the ground floor. Also on the ground floor is a well-equipped kitchen, housing a range of appliances so you can easily cook up a storm for the whole family, and boasting a washing machine for your comfort. The dining area provides ample space for family gatherings over a hot meal and a refreshing beverage. Spend your evenings in the spacious sitting room where you can catch up with the day's events on the sofas, or enjoy a family move night. The property boasts a private lawned garden with a patio that backs on to the property's 25 acres of land which boasts fantastic views. There is a public footpath running alongside the property which leads to Ashburton, a 20 minute walk, where there are excellent shops and pubs. The pub in the charming Dartmoor village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor is highly recommended, as is Ilsington village pub. In this beautiful rural heartland of south Devon you are spoilt for choice when it comes to farm food and local ales. Stay with a friendly family of racehorse breeders who are incredibly welcoming and helpful and be inspired by the natural beauty of Devon. Whether it's a private break away or an adventurous Dartmoor family trip, Whiddon Well caters to all.
