Good times flow naturally on the edge of Dartmoor

Sip bubbly among the hot-tub bubbles. Get warm and cosy in front of the log burner. Pop a cork and sizzle some sausages on the party terrace. Laze and lounge or party hard.

Head back to nature in a fun-filled fairytale

So idyllic is the location of Waterfall House, you might expect to find fairies at the foot of the garden. Instead, it’s Lydford Gorge and the famous White Lady Waterfall. But this twelve-guest retreat is no fairy story. It’s a natural destination for celebrations, get-togethers and holidays.

Fill the cavernous spaces with fun and laughter. Fill the hot tub with chums and sip bubbly among the bubbles. Fill your time exploring Dartmoor, summoning our chef for a fully-catered, food-filled extravaganza, or lazing and lounging on squishy sofas beneath oak beams before Inglenook fireplaces.

Get together for a celebration around the big dining table. Just add popcorn for a movie night in front of the woodburner. Let the iPod dock provide the soundtrack to your party. Wind up on the Wii, then wind down with a good book. There’s space here to be as much a part of things or apart as you wish.

Whether from the house or gardens, Waterfall House is gushing with great views. Stroll down the gorge to find the waterfall. Somewhere beyond the garden terrace, the croquet lawn, the pop of the cork and the sizzle of barbecued salmon or fish, Dartmoor begins.

Gardens and Hot Tub

Waterfall House has a large landscaped garden overlooking the Lydford Gorge. Potted plants, flower beds and luscious lawns await.

Make the most of the spectacular country views in the bubbling Hot Tub, pour a glass of wine and take a dip, it’s the perfect way to relax after a long day’s exploration of Dartmoor.

There is a also a garden terrace complete with a barbecue area and furniture for alfresco dining in the summer months. The kids will really enjoy the croquet lawn and table tennis and you are even welcome to use the stables, if you wish to bring your own horse and ride out on the moor.
