Cottage Holidays in Ponsworthy, Devon, England

After a busy day of touring and sightseeing there can be no better place to get back to and relax than the tranquil environment that Ponsworthy offers. This small quaint hamlet in the heart of Dartmoor National Park is a superb, peaceful get away for your holiday in Devon. With just a few thatched cottages and some fantastic countryside you’ll soon forget that you’re in the 21st century.  Nestled amongst the greenery of Dartmoor National Park, Ponsworthy could be an excellent choice for a rural retreat or country cottage holiday.

As a small village, Ponsworthy is a sleepy little place.  One notable attraction though is the Dartmoor Llama Walks that run from the village.  You can book to take a guided walk with a llama through some of the best scenery that the Dartmoor National Park has to offer.  How’s that for a unique experience?

There are plenty of other pretty little villages to discover within Dartmoor National Park whilst taking a cottage holiday.  Close to Ponsworthy is the village of Poundsgate with its post office, shop and a pub, the Tavistock Inn. And just 3 miles away is Widdecombe-in-the-Moor. Famous for its September fair and ‘Uncle Tom Cobley and all’, the village is a tourist attraction and is well set up to cater for visitors, with two pubs, shops and cafes. It also has an ancient church with a huge tower that is referred to as the cathedral of Dartmoor.

Nearby to Ponsworthy is Dartmeet, where the West Dart and East Dart rivers cross, a spot that is appealing to walkers and is included on many recommended walks. While the immediate countryside is an attraction in itself there are many other attractions and activities further afield on Dartmoor. Based in Ponsworthy for a cottage stay you are well placed to explore them.  Relatively easily accessible for day trips also is Torbay and other popular South Devon coastal resorts.

Both Ashburton and Buckfastleigh are towns on the A38 within easy reach of Ponsworthy. Buckfast Abbey, near Buckfastleigh, with origins dating back to 1147 has been the home of monks for centuries and is now occupied by the Benedictine order.  There are 3 shops within the abbey grounds, one of which retails monastic produce from all over the world much of which is produced by monks and nuns. Buckfastleigh is also the home of the South Devon Railway operating trains pulled by vintage steam engines through the Devon countryside in view of the river Dart to Totnes.

The quiet rural hamlet of Ponsworthy has lots of fascinating hidden attractions to offer in the local area.  Dartmoor National Park is an excellent area for walking, hiking and cycling and can be a great choice for romantic breaks and family holidays.  We trust that you’ll find the scenery inspirational in this part of the West Country and hope you find the best rural country cottage or holiday log cabin to meet your needs.
