Lower Blackaton
Reviewed 23 May 2011

Stayed at Lower Blackaton in mid May with a Chinese couple who are close friends of mine. A genuine ancient longhouse located in a beautiful setting on Dartmoor. The landlady and landlord were friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. The bedrooms were full of character and were beautifully furnished in a homely old fashioned sort of way. The views from some of the many windows can only be described as gorgeous. The breakfast was a perfectly cooked classic example of the "full English breakfast" - absolutely delicious. Try to arrive before sunset as the house can be a little tricky to locate after dark. A small price to pay for a wonderful night spent far from the madding crowd. Highly recommended by Roger, Jing & Hong.

Reviewed 14 June 2009

Lower Blackaton is a lovely old Devon long house in a beautiful location just near the picturesque village of Widecombe. It has a pleasingly old-dashioned feel, and bedrooms are not en suite, so it may not be everyone's ideal. But David and Judy are excellent hosts with an expert knowledge of the area, the breakfast in a big kitchen with Aga was first-rate, and the charges are very modest. The whole house can also be rented for big family parties also at reasonable rates. It really does feel like being at home in one of the loveliest parts of England.
