Located in the centre of Princetown, Duchy House has five en-suite rooms, and is a two-minute walk from the village pubs, cafes and shops.

Lundy lies off the coast of North Devon, where the Atlantic ocean meets the Bristol Channel with nothing between it and America, a granite outcrop, three and a half miles long and half a mile wide. In the hubbub of the modern world it is a place apart, peaceful and unspoilt.

Museum of Dartmoor Life
The Museum of Dartmoor Life is a vibrant centre of community life and lifelong learning. The Museum boasts an outstanding collection telling the story of 5000 years of Dartmoor and will bring to life some of the history of Dartmoor and the surrounding Okehampton area.
North Hall Manor
The site of North Hall known as “Widecombe’s deserted Medieval Manor” lies just to the north of the village green, nestling under the gaze of Widecombe’s magnificent Church Tower. Sadly all that remains now of this once imposing site is the over grown Moat and Apple Pound surrounded by a dilapidated mix of farm buildings ranging from 1940’s milking parlour with dairy alongside livestock buildings.
Peak and Moor
Peak and Moor is an unofficial website offering an alternative to the official tourist and national park websites. The aim is to provide a wide range of information for those who enjoy the countryside for leisure and pleasure, it is intended to be as much for the serious outdoors enthusiast as for families looking for a day out.
