Widecombe is a historic village, with its parish church rightly known as the cathedral of the moor. it is also home to the famous widecombe fair. The area is surrounded by beautiful Tors and streams. Hidden valleys contain the remains of many past settlements, from medieval villages destroyed by the black death, to stone age and bronze age hut circles. the world famous Merrivale stone row is only half hours drive away. Horse riding and canoeing are also popular local activities. surrounding villages and towns offer regular farmers markets, with a taste of local (website hidden) most of these villages you will find a warm welcome in their tearooms and inns. the larger villages also home their own traditional country fair, emphasising country music and folk dancing. Many of Dartmoors long distance walks pass this way, including the very popular two moor way which links the south Dartmoor coast with the Exmoor coast.
Best to bring your own car to really indulge your self here on the moors.

We should tell you that we are on the open moor, continually visited by cattle.
ponies, sheep and cows graze just inches away from the house, so get your cameras on stand by. If you are lucky, you might even get to see new born lambs and even baby ponies.
The cottage has a new carpet fitted recently ,so i would appreciate that shoes are removed at the entrance.
We do not permit dogs.
No smoking in the house please.
I was born in Japan, Nagano. I worked as a nurse in a hospital in Japan. I was interested in terminal care so I moved to England to study Hospice care and English with my children at 2003, but we could not speak English at the time so I studied English at Totnes Language school for several years. Art therapy (Anthroposophy, Rudolf Steiner) at Hibernia college and Drama-therapy. I have been living in Dartmoor since marriage. I love Dartmoor!! We love walking on the coast and the Moors. We are members of the Widecombe History club. My husband Peter have lived here in Widecombe for more than 23 years now.Pete is an award winning Dartmoor historian and guide. He loves art, cricket and taking a stroll on the moors. I love gardening, cooking, walking, and meeting new people.
