Littlecott Farm occupies an outstanding position in the very heart of Dartmoor in a peaceful, sheltered valley some two and a half miles north-west of the village of Widecombe, made world famous by its Annual Fair started in 1850. Dartmoor is a conservation area of outstanding beauty, with its rugged tors contrasted by sheltered combes, containing some of the most spectacular landscapes within the Westcountry. There are unlimited opportunities for riding and walking literally on the doorstep of Littlecott Farm.

The vallage of Widecombe has a traditional green, tea rooms, two inns, primary school, village hall and splendid 16th century church known locally as “The Cathedral of the Moor”. Although very much a rural community, Widecombe is a surprisingly accessible village, being approximately fifteen minutes’ drive from the town of Ashburton and the A38 Expressway, which provides a quick link to the cities of Plymouth in one direction, and Exeter and the M5 motorway in the other. The towns of Chagford, Moretonhampstead and Bovey Tracey – each with their individual characters, can all be reached within 20 minutes.

Littlecott Farm is set at the end of its own tree-lined driveway, either side of which lies excellent grazing land divided into four well fenced and hedged enclosures. The property offers the perfect set-up for keeping horses and animals with large multi-purpose barn providing stabling, storage, tack room and workshop. There is also a modern open-fronted garage building on the opposite side of the yard to the barn. The bungalow has family-sized accommodation with a particularly large kitchen-day room and a cosy living room-both with woodburners. The four double bedrooms are spaced to allow for an extended family and are served by two en-suite shower rooms and a large main bedroom. Many of the rooms take in the wonderful views down the moorland valley and the kitchen-day room and living room both have access to a paved terraced and level lawned garden beyond.

Outside Continued
The land is divided into four useful sized level enclosures with water and currently provides grazing for horses. It is a scenic, private setting and, like the bungalow itself, the land enjoys views over surrounding moorland.

There is a south-facing level lawned garden in front of the bungalow. Small wooded area on one side and an area of lawn at the rear with granite boulders.
