A short stroll down a quiet country lane leads you to Widecombe Village with two pubs, a post office, gift shops and the 'Cathedral of the Moor'. A short drive will take you to bustling moorland towns with a host of tasty tipples, delicious delicacies, designers and makers, boutique stores, unique gifts and shiny treasures or venture a few more miles and reach the beautiful South Devon Coast. The farm includes a riding centre and riding can be arranged to suit all abilities; either in advance of your stay or on arrival. Well behaved dogs (up to two) are welcome by arrangement at no extra cost. We very much look forward to welcoming you Please note that the nightly price you see advertised is based on a 7 night stay. Generally a 5 night stay would cost 90% of a 7 night stay, 4 nights at 80%, 3 nights at 70% and 2 nights at 60%. But this maybe flexible so please do contact me for a quote. .More
