"I stayed at Whitelady house back in November with my family to celebrate my fathers 70th birthday. He had had a particularly bad year with health complaints so we wanted to throw him a really good surprise birthday weekend. It couldn't have been more successful. Everything from booking the property to checking out on the last day was seamless and perfectly organised. The house itself exceptionally comfortable, clean and beautifully presented. A real treat to stay here for the weekend. We ordered some food for the weekend too which was delicious, particularly the lemon meringue pie! Carol so kindly left us some delicious flap jacks and a pot of tea for when we arrived as well which I thought was a really lovely touch.  I can't fault Whitelady house in anyway. It really was the perfect weekend and I can highly recommend it. I'll most definitely be back."



"We arrived to a fabulous greeting by Carol who showed us around the delightful whitelady house and homemade cakes! We are a group who annually holiday together and whitelady house not only measured up to passed trips to luxury houses but surpassed all expectations.

We walked from the house to whitelady waterfall in the gorge and were all wowed by its majesty. Took a trip into Tavistock, a ten minute drive away, and enjoyed the moors. The house had a splendid kitchen with enough space for all to enjoy, a lovely hottub, a few steps from the frenchdoors outside the downstairs twin bedroom and even table tennis in the barn opposite. The house deserves five stars for luxury and comfort and we promise to be back!"



"I have just had 3 amazing days at Whitelady House, to celebrate my Birthday. The house is beautiful, clean and has a lovely homely feel. All my guests loved it and on my Birthday Harriet cooked, served and cleared up it was fantastic It enable me too just relax and enjoy my evening!! Hot tub was another luxury treat to star gaze!!! Great location just walked out the door to Lydford Gorge which is worth seeing, I would love to return one day to explore more off Dartmoor."

"We had a delightful week at Whitelady House. the house is perfectly equipped with everything one could need, the beds are super comfortable and the garden (and hot tub) fab for the children. Dartmoor is a wonderful place, great walks, activities and food. we can’t wait to come back! "

The Wall's Family


"What a truly beautiful place Whitelady House is, we are a family with 3 generations and children ranging from 2 to 14 and the house accommodated us comfortably. We have loved the warmth of the kitchen, the opulence of the dining room and the comfort of the drawing room. But the favourite place of our family is the garden. Hide and seek, relaxing with a beer, frisbee throwing, football or quoits you can play them all. Would we stay again - without doubt, a wonderful week spent in a wonderful place - Thank you xxx"

"What an amazing house! Carol was such an accommodating hostess - with beautifully baked cakes and a superb dinner. Also very helpful with lots of local info on pubs to eat at and things to see and do - we managed a run on Dartmoor and another run/climb in the gorge - will have to save the cycle for next time. "

G Hunter - Jones


"I was looking for somewhere special to stay with some friends to celebrate my 40th and this beautiful house was spot on! A lovely warm welcome on our arrival (delicious homemade cakes, tea / coffee, champagne in the fridge) – what more could we want? – Having viewed pictures on-line I was surprised that the rooms were BIGGER than I thought! I could go on and on about how wonderful it is – but really I’d like to keep it a hidden gem!
