AROUND MANOR COTTAGE
There is plenty to keep you occupied in and around Widecombe - from horse riding to hiring an electric bike to explore Widecombe Valley, or from hiking up to Grimspound to just enjoying the good food and ales in the local pubs! The choice is yours and Diana and Richard will be happy to help you plan your day.
HORSE RIDING ON DARTMOOR
Spoil yourself with a bit of 'me time' and enjoy the National Park on horseback.
Shilstone Rocks Riding Centre offers horse riding over Dartmoor and lessons in their outdoor menage all tailored to your experience.
Rides are organised in small same ability groups of four people or less, although larger groups can also be accommodated.
Advanced booking is essential to guarantee a place.
HIKE & BIKE
For something a little bit different why not explore Dartmoor on foot or on a top-quality electric bike - or both!
Dartmoor Walks & Rides this Way offer guided tours, designed specifically to suit you, that start from a variety of locations on Dartmoor and last a full or half day
EATING AND DRINKING
Widecombe is blessed with two pubs - The Old Inn and the famous Rugglestone Inn, it also has a plethora of cafes and tea rooms - so if cream teas are the order of the day why not try the Wayside Cafe or The Cafe on the Green
Why not hire a local Dartmoor Guide to provide a bespoke walk? Moorland Guides can provide local, well-informed and friendly guides to conduct a tour for you, or alternatively visit their website to book on one of their regular walks.
Widecombe is an ideal stopover point for walkers undertaking the Two Moors Way, and Manor Cottage can organise baggage transfers if required.
