Set within the picturesque Dartmoor National Park, this charming traditional property has been lovingly renovated to create spacious and family-friendly accommodation for 12. Located on Dartmoor’s western edge, it is ideally placed for exploring the nearby Whitelady Waterfall, the park’s rugged tors and the rest of Devon. After a busy day of adventuring, return to this cosy cottage to relax in front of the roaring wood burner, entertain in the stunning country kitchen or enjoy a long soak in the private hot tub.

Inside, this historic home has been sympathetically updated to introduce fresh, contemporary decor and appliances while retaining oak beams, inglenook fireplaces and exposed stonework. Ideal for entertaining, the spacious farmhouse kitchen boasts both an Aga and double electric oven together with a sociable breakfast bar. Once prepared, enjoy family feasts at the large table in the dining room before hunkering down beside a wood burner in one of the two inviting lounges. Each of the six bedrooms has been individually and tastefully decorated, five of which boast TVs. Stepping outside, the large garden is perfectly equipped for family fun, with a croquet area and fire pit with BBQ grill. There is a patio area for al fresco dining and a hot tub for soothing aching muscles after a long walk.

Head out on foot to reach the magical 30-metre high Whitelady Waterfall just 0.5 miles away, or continue to Lydford village (1.5 miles) to enjoy a bite to eat at the pub. Explore the beautiful and rugged Dartmoor National Park on foot, bicycle or horseback, with its tors, flora and fauna. Just 10 miles away, Roadford Lake is a great day out for the whole family, with its nature trails, cycle path, cafe and water sports facilities.

A lovely house, suitable for different family groups, ages, interests, with space to spread out, and rooms big enough to come together. Well appointed kitchen and lots of crockery, glassware etc made entertaining easy

A pleasant cottage in a good location. The hot tub was very enjoyable and was used more frequently than anticipated. It had a well appointed kitchen with more than enough crockery and glassware. The only real downside is that because of the cottages thick walls Wi-Fi is only available in a small part of the cottage.

Wow what a place, 11 of us stayed here for a week, it's such a stunning house and setting. I would highly recommend a stay in the Whitelady House, it had everything you need and more, the hot tub was fantastic after a walk across the moors. Lovely people who own it too. This holiday has definitely made us want to spend more time on Dartmoor.

Just back from a wonderful week. Spacious, well equipped accommodation. Hot tub, games barn were particular favourites with our extended family group. Having two living rooms was very useful. Pleasantly surprised at the size of the garden area. Had a lovely BBQ over the fire pit. Also had Sunday lunch at The Castle which was scrummy. The welcome giRead moreft of a box of flapjacks went down really well. Hide

Excellent equipment throughout, particularly in the kitchen with everything you could require. Friendly owners who provide lots of details for local shops, pubs etc. House was exactly as described and couldn't have had a better experience with my group in Devon.

A very large house with everything you could possibly need, comfortable and spotless. The kitchen was well equiped and the dining table great for all of us to eat together. The whole family (5 to 80 year olds) were well catered for with 2 fire places, the hot tub, croquet on the lawn, outdoor bbq and pool/table tennis in the outbuilding.
