Cottage & Grounds
"A SUPERB COTTAGE WITH FABULOUS VIEWS" Pauline & John, Bristol
Self Catering Cottage... The holiday cottage is a warm, traditional detached converted stone barn, situated within our 40-acre estate. We pride ourselves on keeping it in excellent condition, making sure that we can provide the perfect home away from home for you, your family and friends.
The cottage sleeps six people and comprises of three large bedrooms, including an en-suite king-size master room and a large family bathroom. There is an open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area with a wood-burner and every modern facility you could wish for – from dishwasher to iPod docking station. Luxury bedding, soaps and towels are provided, as is free Wi-Fi if you don’t want to completely disconnect! The cottage is the sole holiday home on the estate, so you don't have to share the lovely gardens and grounds with anyone else. Lower Willsworthy is a non smoking cottage, however smokers are more than welcome to smoke outside.
The private gardens & grounds... There are many great features for everybody here at Lower Willsworthy Holiday Cottage. You can relax and unwind by the Willsworthy Brook in the seclude gardens or enjoy some lovely walks and picnics around the grounds. There is your own stretch of the splendid River Tavy to enjoy (with single bank fishing rights included) and you can even take a dip in our rock pool, the perfect place to cool off on a hot summer’s day! You can even try your hand at Clay Pigeon shooting, which is available onsite. In the evening enjoy the stunning views of Dartmoor and gorgeous sunsets from the courtyard seating area.
Horses... If you love horses then Lower Willsworthy is the place for you. As well as being surrounded by the wild Dartmoor ponies, we also have a stable yard within the grounds. For our younger guests there is 'Jerry' our infamous Shetland pony who loves to be groomed! Pony rides can be arranged on site for children. Horse & pony trekking is available throughout the week at the local trekking centre, just a 5 minute drive away and for the more adventurous rider there are day long expeditions across Dartmoor, taking in locations from the award-winning film War Horse.
Dog Friendly...Dogs are welcome here in our very own luxury guest kennels situated adjacent to the cottage. They feature a large indoor area and large outdoor run. You and your four legged friend can enjoy some lovely walks on Dartmoor or around the estate grounds. The cottage garden provides a safe and secure area for your dog to play in. You can be rest assured that your pet will have a great holiday as well! Please note there is an extra charge for this facility.
