The cosy living room includes a log burner and underfloor heating - perfect for a quiet night in watching a movie on the large screen TV or listening to music. The underfloor heating and hot water are powered by a combination of solar power and gas - ensuring your comfort whatever the weather.
The kitchen is handmade in solid oak with granite work surfaces and fully equipped with a 4-ring gas hob, double oven, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and washer / dryer and other essentials. We even offer a fully stocked wine rack with an honesty box arrangement for payment.
The south facing sun terrace and garden with BBQ and dining area offer breathtakingly beautiful views over the surrounding pastureland towards Dartmoor and its many tors.
Lower Venton is an especially peaceful place to stay, part of a small hamlet set just off a sleepy country lane. Dartmoor ponies may be seen trotting past the gate and yet you are within easy reach of many of South Devon's main attractions. There are moorland walks from the doorstep and riding stables just down the lane offer stunning treks across Dartmoor for riders of all abilities. A five-minute level stroll takes you to “The Rugglestone Inn”, our local pub serving real ale and a menu featuring locally sourced, home cooked produce. The village of Widecombe-In-the-Moor, well-known for its annual fair, is a further half mile walk. There you can enjoy brunch or a cream tea at “The Cafe on the Green”, pick up your daily provisions at the village shop or relax over a pint at “The Old Inn”. Lower Venton has everything you could hope for in a country break.
Visit us in autumn or winter and curl up for cosy evenings in front of a log burner - or enjoy year-round walks in the fabulous Dartmoor countryside. Any time of the year, Lower Venton is the place to enjoy Dartmoor!
