situation


Pond Cottage is located in the heart of Dartmoor in a peaceful sheltered valley about three miles west of the village of Widecombe, made world famous by its Annual Fair started in 1850.

Dartmoor is a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty, with its rugged tors contrasted by sheltered combes, containing some of the most spectacular landscapes within the Westcountry. There are unlimited opportunities for riding and walking literally on the doorstep.

The village of Widecombe has a traditional green, handful of shops, two inns, post office, primary school, village hall and splendid 16th century church known locally as "The Cathedral of the Moor".

Although very much a rural community, Widecombe is a surprisingly accessible village, being approximately six miles north of the town of Ashburton and the A38 Devon Expressway, which provides a quick link to the cities of Plymouth in one direction, and Exeter and the M5 motorway in the other.
