The three light and airy cottages at White Oxen Manor, retain many original features including owl slit windows and exposed beams and offer very comfortable and spacious accommodation personally maintained by the owners. White Oxen Manor is an ancient listed Devon Longhouse standing in its own grounds, and these three delightful cottages have been converted from a 17th Century barn situated in the courtyard. They are set within a sheltered valley on the southern boundaries of Dartmoor National Park surrounded by fields and woodland. They are ideally situated for visiting the moors, the lovely South Hams area, the ancient towns of Dartmouth and Totnes, nearby Dartington Hall and Devon’s wonderful coastline and beaches. The nearby tiny village of Rattery has one of the earliest pubs in the country dating from 1028. Guests are welcome to enjoy the land around the cottages.
Owl Cottage is a must as a romantic hideaway, Corner Cottage is spacious and ideal for a family and The Roundhouse features an unusual, very roomy and attractive living room, excellent for extended families. All the cottages are fully centrally heated, so ideal for winter breaks.

A totally enjoyable return (as in many previous years) to this excellent property with its most helpful and friendly of owners in Philip and Margaret Andrade.
This house was absolutely perfect for us. Fabulous location, equipped with everything we could possibly need, and spotlessly clean. The owners, Philip and Margaret, were so friendly and helpful. A real home from home. Particularly enjoyed the home made scones, jam and clotted cream. Can highly recommend and hope to return one day.
A beautiful cottage in a great location. The beds were so comfortable. Plenty of hot water and the showers were superb. Owners were helpful and the cream tea on arrival was spot on . A great stay
'Roundhouse Cottage' was very clean, comfortable and equipped to the highest standard. The description and pictures on the website were accurate in every way. 'Roundhouse Cottage' is set on the edge of Dartmoor National Park and places in the South Hams area are easily accessible as the A38 (Devon Expressway) is 2 minutes drive away. We would like to thank Margaret & Philip, the owners, for their warm welcome and the lovely cream tea on arrival. We would highly recommend 'Roundhouse Cottage' to anyone seeking the best in self-catering accommodation.
We enjoyed our stay at Oxen Manor, the setting was superb and the cottage was clean throughout. The added touches of fresh flowers, scones, cream and jam were a real treat. We would like to say the owners Phillip and Margaret were really welcoming and especially kind to our children who enjoyed their visits to see Phillips horses. We would definitely recommend this cottage. Thank you Phillip and Margaret.
Outstanding, helpful and really relaxing
The cottage was excellent ,the owners very friendly and helpful The cream tea on arrival was delicious
Toad Hall Cottages make a holiday a total pleasure from the moment you open the brochure to the last farewell glimpse of splendid accommodation.
The proprietors were very welcoming and helpful at all times, consequently we felt at home and very relaxed. The accommodation was comfortable, warm and equipped to the highest standards. I would highly recommend this property to anyone seeking the best in self-catering accommodation.
The Roundhouse was beautiful in every way. The owners extremely friendly and helpful, the house immaculate and the position for us was perfect on the edge of Dartmoor. However, obviously not so suitable for disabled as it is surrounded by hilly fields which makes for beautiful scenery. You need a car unless you are a good walker but that was no problem to us - our ages ranged from 76 down to 14 - but then we love Devon!!
Lovely cottage, lovely owners we were made to feel most welcome. Well equipped cottage with nothing missing everything you could ask for. The cottage is set in a nice area, within reach of some great places. We very much enjoyed our stay and more than enough room for all six of us. lovely scones with cream and jam to welcome us Thank you would stay again
fantastic cottage with lovely welcoming owners
