We are located in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, which is one of England’s last great wildernesses with a uniquely diverse landscape. Over 200 granite tors tower majestically over open moorland where native breed ponies, cattle and sheep graze freely. There are no pylons or wind turbines and the landscape is rich in stone and iron age remains. Lush valleys with torrenting rivers, picturesque villages and ancient stannary towns await exploration.
The sandy beaches of the South Hams are just under half an hour away as are the exciting cities of Exeter and Plymouth. Take a Steam Trains and River Boat down the River Dart to Dartmouth, explore the Jurassic Coast, Eden Project, breakers on the North Cornwall Coast equally accessible from Holwell as day-trips.
Widecombe in the Moor is a picturesque moorland village nestling in one of England’s most beautiful and unspoilt valleys. Ponies come to greet you and there are several pubs to rest in after an exhilarating walk of the nearby Tors. The famous Fair still takes place every September. Other nearby attractions include the Stanary towns of Ashburton, Chagford and Tavistock; all have great local food shops and markets.
Bovey Tracey also features a great outdoor pool, renowned Craft Centre in the old mill and famous Marble House for great gift ideas. Activities for all the family from walking and hiking, riding, climbing, cycling and fishing. Young children love to walk to the nearby Bonehill Rocks for a spot of “letterboxing”.
Location perfect for beautiful walks, drives and climbing Tors. There are several really good family friendly pubs and cafe’s within walking and short driving distance. You always know that your children will sleep well at Holwell because the air is so pure and they will be so exhausted from their hikes etc.
Holwell is a place where all the family can have a fun and relaxing time. There are so many natural pursuits to enjoy that don’t cost any more money. One of the activities that is available all year round on Dartmoor is fly fishing. You can choose from the tributaries of the River Dart on the high moor where the water first rises to the wider reaches down near Totnes.
Holwell is home to a varied and rich wildlife. Flora and fauna greet you at every turn. On Dartmoor there is really something for everyone. Gentle strolls along easily navigated paths combine with more ambitious hiking routes which will keep you going for up to a day at a time. The Dartmoor National Park offers a really great Guided Walk service and we can arrange for a Park Ranger to take you for walks in advance of your stay. Certainly a “greener” approach to getting about on your visit to Dartmoor.
We can hire in cycles for the whole family that are here for your arrival and duration of stay. The location is also ideal for day trips to Torquay, Paignton, the Eden project etc. Something for everyone at Holwell Holiday Cottages.
