Property Type: 
Holiday house with hot tub and games room sleeping 12 on the edge of Dartmoor National Park

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Whitelady House, Lydford, Okehampton, Devon, sleeps 10-12 in 6 bedrooms.

Whitelady House (formerly Manor Farm) is a large old Devon farmhouse with many original features. Set over two floors and comprising six bedrooms and four bathrooms, the house is ideal for anniversaries, birthday celebrations, hen parties, reunions or family get-togethers, with plenty of space to unwind and relax.

The house has been renovated and lovingly refurbished, exuding style and character with oak beams, inglenook fireplaces and exposed stone work, but retaining a homely, relaxed atmosphere.

Whitelady House provides a memorable venue for a fun & relaxing house party, either self-catering or catered. As an alternative to self catering we can remove the burden of preparing and cooking for a large group by providing a luxury “ski chalet style service” where we will create and serve meals at the house. Sit back and enjoy the company of friends & family, while we do the work.

Situated on the edge of Dartmoor close to the picturesque market town of Tavistock, the huge expanse of Dartmoor is yours to enjoy. Dartmoor National Park is, quite simply, spectacular. The landscape has changed little for thousands of years; with its ancient woodlands, high granite tors, winding valleys, sparkling streams & vast tracts of moorland offering an enormous range of activities for the adventurous – canoeing, riding, gorge scrambling, fishing, rock climbing, epic cycle rides on the Granite Trail, gliding…. the sky’s the limit!

For the less adventurous there is plenty to do, whether hunting out antiques in Tavistock Pannier market, discovering the numerous independent boutique shops down the high street or visiting the National Trust's Buckland Abbey or Cotehele - something for eveyone.

The area is also full of great traditional local pubs serving good locally sourced food and local beer & cider.

Back at the house you can enjoy the large garden equipped with teak furniture, loungers, swinging hammock, table tennis table, outdoor games, croquet set & gas barbecue. And not forgetting the hot tub - which is emptied, cleaned & refilled for each set of guests.

Whitelady House is the perfect place for a relaxing break away from it all with family and friends.
