Higher Whiddon Farm Whiddon Well is a cottage attached to the owner's farmhouse near the village of Ashburton, just a short distance from Dartmoor. The cottage sleeps four people and has one king-size double bedroom on the first floor, plus one twin bedroom (can be super king-size double on request) and a family bathroom on the ground floor. Also in the cottage are a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with dining area and woodburner. Outside is off road parking for three cars and a patio with furniture, a secured well with safety mesh and a children's slide. Situated in South Devon, Higher Whiddon Farm Whiddon Well is a lovely family cottage all year round.

The ancient Stannary town of Ashburton lies on the southern slopes of Dartmoor and is an ideal spot from which to explore rugged high moors to the North and a beautiful coastline to the South. The scenery in this area of South Devon is glorious in all weathers and offers visitors opportunities for walking, pony trekking, canoeing, fishing and lazing on the beach. Ashburton has some interesting artisan shops and with its interesting history and museum, has built a reputation for its high standard of antiques and fine collectables outlets.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

We had a really lovely stay at Higher Whiddon Farm! The house was very clean, comfortable and well equipped, and from the garden and kitchen you have a lovely view over the fields with horses. In the house there is also a lot of information available about the area. We certainly recommend this place to anybody who wants to explore Dartmoor National Park!

My need was to relax and chill out and this splendid cottage certainly gave us all we needed. The owners were charming and so helpful. Our holiday really was truly wonderful and the horses were the added bonus.

We had a really wonderful time at the property. The owners were so helpful and friendly but at the same time respected our privacy and made the experience extra special. It was a fantastic location, right on the moors for some wonderful walks and with lovely pubs near by. We would highly recommend staying here and will be sure to come back.

The quality of the cottage and furnishings were 5 star. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the wood-burning stove was fantastic, the cottage was really warm and cosy. The owners were so welcoming and were happy to help any time. The cottage was easy to access off the motorway and yet still truly remote and quiet. A good location for access to Dartmoor national park and all its attractions.

Excellent accommodation to explore South Devon and Dartmoor looking at its best. A quiet location, and the owners were very friendly and breed racehorses. We have had most enjoyable holidays in several of your cottages around the country for many years and Higher Whiddon Farm was one of the best!

Peaceful tranquil location in picturesque Devon farming countryside, 5 minutes from Dartmoor! This is a lovely property we had no issues during our stay with family and our two dogs. The garden is not enclosed but for responsible owners with well trained dogs this is not an issue. The owners who live nearby are very very very friendly and helpful and there was not enough they could do to make us feel welcome and to make our stay stress free. Plenty to see and do nearby. A charming cottage in a beautiful location would defiantly recommend without hesitation.
