Overview

About the property

Hatchwell Lodge is part of Hatchwell Hall, a grade 2 listed Dartmoor Farmhouse

Hatchwell lodge is a beautifully furnished hideaway on Dartmoor. The warm interior with its wood burning stove and endless beautiful touches provide a romantic setting to close the curtains and relax with films, books and a hot bath. However if you venture outside there is a garden that is south facing, where you can see the far reaching views of the moor. The welcome folder details walks over the moor, though I would head straight to the Rugglestone Inn! Widecombe in the moor is less than 2 miles and has a National trust property, Inns and shops. The main attraction however is the whole of the Dartmoor National Park with its unspoilt landscape, wild ponies and strangely highland cattle. Even driving to Hatchwell is an experience, if you are like me you will stop on route just to take in the views...truly breathtaking in all seasons.

However this is a special little hide away and with its lovely wam interior, full of interesting touches it will be very hard to drag yourselves away.

Fantastic cottage in a beautiful part of Dartmoor

  • 5 of 5

Had an absolutely fantastic time on our mininoon at this cottage, which is situated in a beautiful location on Dartmoor. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need, plus there was a lovely cream tea waiting for us on arrival! The cottage is well located very close to the village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor and a short drive from Bovey Tracy and Mortenhampstead. The Gateway Tea Room in Mortenhampstead is a well worth the drive. The owners gave us some good tips on where to eat and good pubs nearby. The cottage is very peaceful itself and has been finished to a very high standard with a excellent wood burning stove that keeps the place very cosy. Highly recommended.

Hatchwell Lodge is set in a beautiful rural location near Widecombe-in-the-Moor, probably the most famous village in the National Park.

The park itself covers 368 sq miles of wild rugged landscape, characterized by towering granite tors, paths and tracks winding through the heather and the stunning River Dart that gave the moor its name. It is therefore a favourite place of walkers, cyclists and riders,with access to The Two Moors Way and the Templar Way, as well as many other marked routes to suit all users.

The tors provide 'letter boxing' and geocaching, or simply just a wonderful vantage point to enjoy views all the way to the sea.

For the adventurous there is rock climbing, kayaking and canoeing, also angling. Plenty of information is available about how to access all activities, the main Visitor Centres being Princetown, Postbridge and Haytor.

The area is steeped in history, folklore and legend abound, revolving around the tin-mines, the remnants of bronze-age villages, the famous granite long houses and the infamous Dartmoor Prison. Small wonder the Moor has inspired so many of our best known authors and produced such great works of literature.

Wildlife and animal lovers can enjoy the sight of sheep, cattle and Dartmoor ponies roaming free, and take advantage of the work of the many artists and photographers who exhibit in the local area.

There are many great places to eat and drink, from cosy, welcoming pubs with pretty gardens to tea rooms and village cafés. Widecombe itself is well served by two excellent pubs, charming cafés and a local shop, as well as the 16th century church whose imposing architecture can be seen from miles around and has given it the title 'cathedral of the moor'. On the second Tuesday of September every year the village opens its arms to visitors from all over the world who come to experience the famous Widecombe Fair, where rural crafts, livestock, local food, drink and music are all on display as well as Uncle Tom Cobley and his legendary grey mare.

The unique atmosphere of the Moor with its ever-changing moods cannot fail to enchant, but should the visitor wish a different experience, the rest of glorious Devon is on offer, the only county in Britain with two contrasting coasts, the south tranquil and calm, the north wild and untamed, home of excellent surfing.

Devon has everything to offer, from peaceful thatched cottage villages to vibrant towns with night-life and fine dining, Dartmoor standing out as the ancient shining jewel in its crown.
