15th century traditional Devon Longhouse, located within the confines of Dartmoor National Park, with the English Riviera resorts of Torquay, Paignton, and Brixham just twenty miles away.

Enjoy the splendid surroundings of Dartmoor National Park from this exquisite former longhouse, which welcomes up to six guests and three four-legged friends, near Widecombe in the Moor. Explore your gorgeous surroundings from the three-bedroom, 15th-century stone property, which is one of two welcoming properties set on a farm. Plan days out at sandy beaches on the English Rivera or simply relax at home with your pups in your large, enclosed garden or by a roaring wood burner inside.

Walk into this character-filled holiday home to find beautiful, exposed stone floors, as well as timber beams and whitewashed walls. Enter via the hall where you can rub down your happy chaps after fun-filled days out, then call them through into the enchanting lounge with its attractive inglenook fireplace and wood burner. Watch TV while your contented canines bask in the heat. You’ll find everything you need in your kitchen to prepare tasty meals, as well as a washing machine and tumble dryer for dealing with those damp doggy towels. Dine in style with friends and family around the table in the dining room, then climb the stone staircase to your three bedrooms and family bathroom. Spend sunny afternoons playing outside with your best four-legged friends and enjoying your generous, grassy garden.

Head out from home and follow a section of the 102-mile, long-distance Two Moors Way, which crosses the stunning moorlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Pack your beach gear, grab the leads and drive 18 miles to the English Riviera at Maidencombe. This peaceful sandy beach, which is surrounded by red sandstone cliffs, welcomes wagging tails all year round. Return after a long day out to enjoy a bite to eat or refreshing drink at the pub in Widecombe in the Moor, where your canine companions are also very welcome.

A warm, characterful and clean cottage set in classic Devon countryside in easy reach of stunning walks, tors, prehistoric monuments and pretty villages. Despite some less than good weather, we had a brilliant week.

A quaint, tucked away cottage with bags of charm and original features, set in a lovely location not far from Widdecombe. Whilst the bathroom is basic and the kitchen quite small, it didn't detract from the wonderful week we spent there. Cosy and warm with a log burner if you need it, we spent our week walking the moor or tucked up reading in frontRead more of the fire. Delightful and will definitely return. Hide

Great location and a lovely place to stay. Excellent standard of preparation, a pleasure to walk into! Well equipped to a high standard and level of comfort. Our three dogs loved the garden, which is enclosed and safe, and for exclusive use of the Longhouse - perfect. We will definitely book to stay here again.

A lovely old cottage literally in the middle of nowhere. Despite the slightly confusing directions, it was actually quite easy to find. We found it quite cold, probably because it was very early in the year. The villages a drive away but hast two excellent pubs. Access to all parts of Dartmoor is within easy driving distance.

If you want to get away from everything then this is a great place. Owners are making a good effort to encourage wildlife and we found Spotted Flycatchers and Redstart nesting on the premises as well as sparrows etc. Good enclosed garden for dogs.
