Nice location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is well situated and we really enjoyed the walks. The cottage could do with a good clean. On the serface it looked clean but we found used bottles of drink under the beds amongst a year of dust same as behind chairs and we couldn't use the bed settee for same reason it could be because it's the end of season. It was well equipped and warm enough. Bed linen very clean beds abit hard but to be fair I do like a soft mattress. My dogs loves the garden but please be careful to check them each time as both came in with ticks and blood suckers on them so needed a couple of trips to vet but we did expect this as pre warned by our vet. All in all a good holiday.

Owner's Response: Hi Jenny, Many thanks for taking the time to review Windtor. I'm glad you found the cottage clean and apologise for the sofa bed. It is not really intended for guest use and I normally have it checked for any guests who do ask for extra sleeping space because there is no bedding available in that room. I'm pleased you found the garden great for dogs!

The cottage is about 45 minutes from the South Devon beaches but some brave guests have been known to swim in the local Dart river.


Windtor Cottage is best accessed from the A38 through Bovey Tracey and then Haytor, following the signs to Widecombe. You pass through the village and continue south till you come to Lady Meadow Terrace on the right hand side. Climb the hill past the row of houses until you see Windtor which is the second from the top of the road. The postal address of the cottage is Windtor Cottage, Dunstone, Widecombe.


Bovey Tracey 15 minutes, Ashburton 15 minutes, Exeter 35 minutes, Plymouth 45 minutes.

Further Details:

The Shop on the Green in Widecombe carries some essentials. There are two pubs, the Old Inn in the village and the Rugglestone on the road out of the village towards Venton. Both serve excellent food and beverages. The National Trust shop and Church House are worth a visit as is the magnificent 14th Century St Pancras Church. Both Tesco and Waitrose deliver to the cottage and many of the local smallholders sell vegetables in season. There is some 02 reception near the cottage but none of the other providers are available in the valley. The River Dart Country Park with Zip Wires and an assault course is a few minutes’ drive from the cottage as is Dartmeet and South Devon Railway. The Two Moors Way runs across the top of Wind Tor and this takes you right through to Exmoor. We are also fortunate to be a few miles from the beginning of the Templer Way. We are about 45 minutes from the sea.
