Description from manager

This characterful Devon cottage is situated near Widecombe-in-the-Moor in the heart of Dartmoor and can sleep two people in two bedrooms.Hamel Down Hideaway is a sweet little semi-detached cottage in the heart of Dartmoor, two miles from the Devon village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor. The cottage sleeps two people in two double bedrooms with bathroom. On the ground floor is a sitting room with wood burning stove and dining area and a galley kitchen. Steps down to a bathroom and a lobby. Outside is an open shared garden, with pond, covered with a metal grill and 23 acres of fields which lead to the open moor. Close to a famous traditional Dartmoor village, Hamel Down Hideaway is a perfect place to walk and tour Dartmoor and Devon.

Amenities: Central heating with wood burning stove. Fridge, dishwasher, TV with DVD, WiFi, Fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot available on request, Off road parking for two cars. Sorry, no pets and no smoking.

Region: Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

Town: Widecombe is tucked away in a Dartmoor valley with the spectacular moorland and tors rising up on all sides, making it a perfect location for walkers, mountain bikers, riders or those that love dramatic landscapes. The village is made up of a pretty mixture of granite built houses and a lovely old church which is known as the cathedral of the moor. There are a couple of good food pubs, a café for indulgent cream teas and shops. Widecombe famously hosts Widecombe Fair every September, where you can see displays of livestock, local produce, vintage farm machinery and even a bale tossing competition. Further afield is Bovey Tracey – home to the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and worthy of a visit. Dartmoor National Park has the greatest number of archaeological remains in Europe and there are Neolithic tombs, mystical stone circles and abandoned medieval farmsteads to explore. Conan Doyle was inspired to write his classic novel The Hound of the Baskervilles and it is easy to imagine Sherlock Holmes wandering the wild moorland terrain, along with the wild and beautiful Dartmoor ponies.
