“Probually the best cottage for two in England.”
Reviewed 6 December 2009 for a stay in December 2009

If you like the feel and experience of living in your own cosy traditional stone and oak barn then this is the place for you. The quality of the renovation is outstanding with every attention to detail of a traditional oak framed building with loads of exposed beams two foot thick stone walls with the added benefit of draft free modern living environment. There is a log burner, under floor heating and a kitchen with granite work tops all coupled together with state of the art appliances. Only 350 meters away is a fabulous friendly pub (Rugglestone Inn) with stone floors and a warming log burner serving excellent food, local ales and cider. Only 350 meters further on past the pub is the village of Widicombe with local shops and plenty of chalm.

“The Oak Barn is probably the most luxurious holiday house we've ever experienced”
Reviewed 4 November 2009 for a stay in September 2009

The owners have hand crafted every detail to create probably the most luxurious holiday house ever experienced, which is fresh and modern, and yet has the character which comes with exposed oak beams, and is ideally located in the beautiful and tranquil heart of the Dartmoor Park. We were privileged to be Richard and Lesley’s first guests to enjoy the 5-star luxury of their stunningly rebuilt & restored Oak Barn, with its vast open plan living space, with top quality, solid hand made furniture, and yet opulent fabrics, cozy underfloor heating, and a log fire to top it all. The 2 bathrooms / wet rooms (en suite) can rival top spa’s, with free-standing baths, plus a sauna. The kitchen is fully equipped (complete with a couple of cases of wine), and if you can glance away from the gorgeous view over the rolling landscape, the living area is fitted with a large screen TV, Blue-Ray player (with dozens of DVD’s) and i-Pod connecting Hi-Fi. We loved Richard’s accomplishment on the Oak Barn so much we asked him to build us a house just the same. Just book it, its fantastic.

“Beautiful, luxurious, restful I cannot recommend this highly enough”
Reviewed 7 June 2009 for a stay in May 2009

This place exceeded my expectations even with the fantastic reviews already on trip advisor. The weather was good so was able to take advantage of large south facing lawn looking over dartmoor ponies in the fields beyond. The cottage itself is finished to such a high standard and it is all the little touches such as home baked bread and eggs from the hens that makes it extra special. There are lots of walks and lovely things to see nearby and the local pub (Rugglestone Inn)serves a mean fish pie and really is only 3 mins walk which was perfect.
We switched off and relaxed which is all you can ask for a holiday - thanks to Richard and Lesley for their helpful but unintrusive presence and for recommending a beach which had a shop selling fresh seafood which we had on a barbeque on the beach - it was great!

“Perfect Honeymoon....”
Reviewed 25 March 2009 for a stay in March 2009

What a great place for a honeymoon, to get away from it all after a hetic few days. Very high quality cottage which has everything you need in it. Great pubs (Rugglestone & The Old Inn) within easy walking distance. If you like walking and being outdoors this is the place to go. Richard and Lesley (owners) were very friendly and helpful, we even ended up staying longer than we should of - I think that says it all....

“Idyllic, romantic, luxurious...”
Reviewed 11 March 2009 for a stay in December 2008

My husband and I stayed here for ten days over Christmas and New Year 2008 into 2009. I haven't slept so well in ages! Loved the quality of the finish, fixtures and fittings. The location is second to none, and the cottage is ideally placed for exploring Dartmoor and all it has to offer. You can walk the half a mile to the fab Rugglestone Inn for great food and beer, or cook in the very well-equipped kitchen using produce from the many local producers and suppliers. We were here in the middle of winter and it was toasty warn, but in the summer it would be a total sun-trap. Just beautiful and have already recommended it to many others.

“Very Romantic”
Reviewed 24 November 2008 for a stay in October 2008

We stayed in Widecombe Cottage whilst visiting Widecombe in the Moor . We only stayed for a weekend, but could have stayed much longer - but we had to get back to London. Widecombe cottage is a beautiful little cottage ideal for a romantic getaway to the countryside. Set in the rolling hills of Dartmoor , the cottage is 5 star and self catering . It has been recently furnished to an exceptional standard , has a great log fire and living space downstairs with a great kitchen. Upstairs is a very cosy double bedroom and bathroom. Mr Richard Code and his lovely wife were only too happy to help us with advice on walks or activities to pursue - we really hope to return v soon . Thankyou.
