Lovely cosy cottage in the perfect location for a peaceful stay in the middle of Dartmoor. Very well equipped with everything we needed, we would have loved to stay longer.
Lovely cottage and people will return great scenery and pleasant environs good facilities
Norman and Venetia very helpful
Had another lovely stay at dashel cottage. A warm welcome but never in your face. Widecombe is only a twenty minute walk (longer coming back uphill). Don't miss the walk from Jordan to Ponsworthy and see another side of Dartmoor, we usually go the extra (country) mile for lunch at the Tavistock Inn. Already booked for next year.
Charming barn conversion in lovely location. We have stayed here four times and are booked again for next year. Cottages actually on the moor are rare. There are great walks straight from the cottage. The Rugglestone Inn in Widecombe is just too far to walk - and after one of their meals no way could one walk back
We've stayed at Brimble and Dashel Cottages a few times over the years and always had a lovely time. The cottage is pretty well set up and the owners' friendliness (to our aging dog as well as ourselves does make a difference). The only issues we had this time were 1) the firmness of the mattress on the double bed made it quite uncomfortable....although possibly that's just us getting old and 2) the still over-sensitive smoke alarm....using the toaster or doing any cooking required us to have both front and back doors open for fear of triggering it. Notwithstanding those niggles Dockwell is a delightful place to spend time and located very handily for the nicest parts of Dartmoor
Lovely cottage, beautifully situated just over the moor from Widecombe.
Cosy sitting room/kitchen/diner downstairs - lovely log fire would be great in colder months no doubt! Has Sky freeview channels and decent wi-fi.
Upstairs is large bathroom (could do with a shower screen fitting to bath though to avoid flooding!), decent sized double bedroom and on upper floor a further 2 single beds.
Pet friendly too which was a bonus for us - there's a decent sized rear garden for the dog - just be aware that there are geese, hens, guinea-fowl on the farm roaming around so keep dogs under control.
Overall a great place to stay - centrally located for days out etc. Definitely one to return to in the future!
Dashed Cottage place is a wonderful place to stay. It's very comfortable and cozy with everything you need. The position on Dartmoor is lovely for walking from the door and well placed for day trips further afield. Venetia and Norman are excellent hosts - very friendly and helpful as needed. We look forward to our return!
