very comfortable cottage and great location for exploring Dartmoor

ANDY very Friendly-helpful .nice location- nice pubs and cafe

Very comfortable cottage with great views and is a great place to relax.

Cara (dog) and I really enjoyed our stay in Widecombe. Everyone is very friendly, village shop carries a surprising variety. As a non-driver, I found several lovely walks nearby.

Cottage had everything needed-very comfortable. Village and local area very nice. Good pubs, cafe and shops in village. Not very far from good walking areas.

Fantastic cottage in a beautiful location. We cannot wait to come back and stay again!

Just love this super cottage in the heart of Dartmoor, and can't wait to return. Great base, two fantastic pubs nearby and Andy is a lovely host.

Little place but very cozy. More than enough for two people. Comfortable bed, good shower, kitchen has everything you need to cook simple meal. The whole place is very clean. Very quiet and location is good. Lovely small village with good pubs.

Andy is very good host, very friendly.

Except the last two days without wifi connection is a bit inconvenient, otherwise all is good

Cosy and clean and very comfortable, in a great location. Basic in terms of appliances etc, but pretty much all you could need. The owner is charming and welcoming and very helpful. Perfect for a short getaway!

A beautiful little cottage in a beautiful location, we had a lovely stay!

A fantastic stay in a lovely place. The cottage is comfortable, clean and well-equipped. Andy is really welcoming and helpful. A real retreat.

Fantastic cosy little cottage in the heart of Dartmoor

Cosy size but fine for a couple, excellent location for exploring Dartmoor and situated handily for 2 good pubs.

Second visit this year. Thoroughly enjoyed the perfect location and a brilliant visit to Widecombe Fair. Early mornings and late afternoons, when the crowds have gone, are especially great.

What a fabulous spot to enjoy all the fun of Widecome Fair! We're so glad you had a great stay and hope you'll return again soon. Tanya, Customer Support

Our second stay at this lovely little bolthole. A great use of the space available, and very cosy and warm even on cool nights. The location is perfect for exploring the area, with fabulous walks from the doorstep and a choice of two pubs within a gentle stroll. Andy is friendly, welcoming and hospitable - we'll definitely be back.

Ned's Nook is a cleverly compact cottage - very comfortable and in a wonderful location. Great cafes and pubs made life very easy! Widecombe is beautiful especially as it wakes up each morning. Never thought that you could chat to sheep through the bedroom window and that they would reply so enthusiastically! We really hope to visit again.

Ned's is a delightful little cottage for two and an ideal base for exploring the east side of Dartmoor. The owner, Andy, could not have been more welcoming - indeed all the villagers we met in Widecombe were equally warm and friendly. Ned's is most suitable for those who, like us, love to hear the sound of sheep early in the morning - no need for an alarm clock with their regular arrival in the village each day!

The Old Inn next door to Ned's is a good pub with good food and staff Excellent pasties and other food are available from the small outlet outside the cottage as well as the cafes in the village

Lovely holiday. The perfect getaway for us and the dog. The owner was really friendly and gave great ideas on walks. Thanks so much!

This cottage is not suitable for companion dogs. Your dog is not allowed in the living area with you.

We are sorry that this property didn't meet your requirements. We do ask that dogs are not allowed on the furniture or in the bedrooms, but they are allowed in the living areas. We appreciate in a reversed level open plan cottage such as this, it can present some challenges. The owner was sorry that you hadn't raised this with him during your stay so that he could help to find a solution for you. Tanya, Customer Support

A great property, close proximity to local pubs and shops and easy access to Dartmoor walks.

Great location, friendly owner and lovely little retreat for two (+ dog!)

The property is small and perfectly formed. It suits us so well and the owner is just charming. The cottage is in the centre of Widecombe and is an excellent site for exploring Dartmoor.

Idyllic, tranquil ..great walks and views ...ideal for dog owners/walkers with great food on your doorstep..

Ned's was the perfect little bolthole for our weekend away. The location in the centre of popular Widecombe is perfect - two pubs and two lovely cafes within an easy walk (definitely try the Rugglestone Inn just down the hill) and views over the green. It's so peaceful in the evenings and early mornings, only a few ponies, cows or sheep passing through. The courtyard was a lovely little private suntrap - we were blessed with true 'flaming June' weather and it was idyllic sitting outside with a glass of something cold! There are many walks to enjoy from the village itself, and it's very easy to jump in the car to go a little further afield. Andy the Owner was most hospitable and charming, and we can't wait to return.

Ned's is an ideal 'away from it all' retreat. Small but cosy, well equipped and furnished to a high standard. It's location in the village is great for the two pubs and one can walk out straight on to the moors.

A lovely little place - our stay was brilliant and we'll be back again soon!

This is a delightful little cottage, at the heart of Widecombe. We (myself, wife and Jack Russell) stayed for 4 nights and found the accommodation very comfortable. A great place to start a moor walk or just chill out and people watch.

Ideally placed in the village with own car parking spot. Two good pubs in the village and a local shop serving papers, milk etc. The cottage is a pleasing mixture of quaint and boutique.

Ned's is a compact, charming 'cottage'. Perfect for a couple with a dog. It is situated in pretty Widecombe which has easy access to good walks on the moor.

An excellent and comfortable little property. The owner very pleasant and helpful and lives next door.
