Widecombe is a small village on the sprawling wild moorland of Dartmoor and acts as a safe haven from the elements for visitors to the moor who stop at the gift shops, pubs and cafés. The country village is steeped in ghostly myth and legend and is presided over by a Gothic style 14th century church.

Our collection of Widecombe-In-The-Moor holiday cottages combines rural tranquillity with country style in the perfect location for outdoor pursuits.
