View of Whitelady House in the summer


Whitelady House offers free Wifi and a hot tub in the large garden along with a firepit with BBQ attachment. We provide table tennis and croquet. Next door to Lydford Gorge we boast of 2 village pubs and Dartmoor on our doorstep. Dogs are welcome. We have a vast array of things to do in the local area and beyond.

Horses riding across Dartmoor


One of the best ways to discover Dartmoor is on horseback. If you’re a novice or a beginner there is a trekking centre close by offering an hour or two pony trekking. 

Whitelady waterfall


The Whitelady house dates back to the 1600’s. It was the farm house to the Manor hence its original name of Manor Farm. This was changed when the house was renovated to reflect it's position next to the Whitelady Waterfall in Lydford Gorge, the deepest gorge in the South West.

Dining room laid for a meal


At Whitelady House we offer self-catering with the option of meals made to order ahead of your arrival,  or a  "chalet" style catering where we come in and cook for you at Whitelady House. For cooking alfresco there is a firepit with BBQ grill or (for an additional charge) wood-fired ovens are available.
