The Dartmoor Holiday Cottage Co. is a family run company based in the tiny hamlet of Chaddlehanger, near Tavistock and we have a selection of cottages which are ideally placed to explore Dartmoor, the North and South Coasts of Devon and on into Cornwall. All our luxury holiday cottages have been carefully and imaginatively renovated to provide everything needed for a relaxing and romantic holiday or short break in this spectacular part of England.

But the area offers so much more for your holiday than the Moor – Tavistock, a World Heritage Site dating from 961 AD, has many fantastic shops & restaurants and was twice voted Best Food Town in the UK. All the cottages are in close proximity to a large number of places of interest and things to do, both in Devon and Cornwall - just look on the Adventures & Relaxing pages for some inspiration...

Each holiday cottage offers beautifully designed accommodation and we have ensured that they are equipped to the very highest standard – if you need any help choosing between them or advice on the area then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

We are also venturing further afield - please follow this link for our holiday home in the Dordogne, France  a wonderful old house which sleeps up to 10 people and has its own private swimming pool.

Dine with us - self-catering made easy...

We're delighted to be in partnership with a wonderful Mediterranean food shop in Tavistock - De La Torres - who provide the most delicious home-made  fresh pasta & sauce.  With advance notice I can ensure that it is in the cottage for your arrival to take the worry out of dinner!   See our Foodie Heaven page for full details.



The Government has said that self-catering holiday homes will be able to re-open for guests from 4th July. 

The health and safety of our guests is our paramount concern so we are going over and above Government guidelines for cleaning and protection from Coronavirus.  We are extending the time between guests departure and arrivals and have doubled our cleaning staff, additionally we have invested in an anti-viral fogging machine*.  By fogging the entire cottage we will ensure the cleanest possible space for your holiday. 

None of our cottages share communal facilities and as you will see on the website the cottages are not only in a beautiful part of the world, perfect to recharge your batteries.   

We have also updated our cancellation policy so if you are unable to take your holiday because of state restrictions on travel you will be able to receive a full refund or postpone your booking without financial penalty.

The Area

DHC dartmoor

"I have never before, in my long and eclectic career, been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty as I experienced filming War Horse on Dartmoor... And, with two-and-a-half weeks of extensive coverage of landscapes and skies, I hardly scratched the surface of the visual opportunities offered to me.
