‘One of a kind’ doesn’t do this incredible retreat justice. We promise you, jaws will drop on arrival at this beauty, set in an idyllic and peaceful hamlet within Dartmoor National Park. As soon as you drive in to the main courtyard of Eadric House, you’ll be blown away by the size and beauty of the ancient converted barns, surrounded by verdant trees and beautiful, well-kept gardens. Step inside and you’ll find an abode like no other; with so many rooms we’ve lost count – covering 12,000 square feet - and with everything from a parlour to a play room (one for kiddies and one for adults, naturellement), there’s plenty, and we really mean plenty, of space for all – not to mention the swimming pool, sauna and gym, as well as Buddle Barn, a separate cottage retreat across the courtyard which sleeps four. Please note that as this is a family home, the house is not suitable for hen or stag parties.

If you have particular dates in mind and they don't appear to be available on the website, do give us a call on 01872 553 491 as we may be able to accommodate them.


Entering Eadric House via huge wooden doors, you find yourself in the astonishing entrance hall (which doubles up as a dance floor, by the way). From here you can go left, right and up through the warren-like house and find numerous sitting rooms, drawing rooms, snugs and lounges to squirrel yourself away in. With gorgeous Loaf sofas, fab throws and sumptuous cushions, these rooms are meant to comfort – whether you want time to yourself or to meet up all together. All of the main living areas have wood burning stoves to keep things cosy in winter, whilst ancient walls keep things cool on hot summer days. Additionally, there’s the most incredible thatched Games Barn complete with play room for little ones filled with wall-to-ceiling shelves stacked with toys, a large table for crafts, TV with surround sound system and a loo. Just above, there’s an adult games room too with full size snooker table, table tennis and table football with sofas and a beer fridge. Buddle Barn, across the courtyard, also has a fabulous living area and affords an escape should you want a bit of peace of quiet. For entertainment, there are televisions and WiFi throughout, as well as a SONOS sound system linked throughout the house, the barn and the swimming pool.


Fully equipped with everything you’d need to create a feast, the house has fantastic kitchen facilities including a four oven Aga, Rangemaster and another Aga in Buddle Barn. Gorgeous aged beams run up and around the main kitchen, making it feel very warm and snug. There’s plenty of work top space provided by the island in the middle of the room and a fab American-style fridge-freezer. A Belfast sink, wood burning stove and gorgeous plum-coloured cupboards complete this homely room. The house has three dining areas, the largest of which is complete with everything you need for a cocktail evening including an honesty cocktail bar. Buddle Barn also has a dining area perfect for six people.


There are 11 gorgeous, unique bedrooms at Eadric House with four kings, four doubles, two singles and one small single. There are mezzanine levels in some of the bedrooms offering additional flexible sleeping as well (one super king and one king - plus a single trundle is available if required). Four of the bedrooms are en suite and all are decorated to an exceptionally high standard and come complete with super comfy beds ensuring a great night’s sleep.


Eadric House has seven bathrooms, four of which are en suite. Three have roll-top baths and one has a fantastically luxurious rainfall shower. There are 11 toilets throughout Eadric House, so there shouldn’t ever be queues for the loo!

Swimming pool, sauna and gym

For the ultimate treat, Eadric House comes complete with a 15 meter indoor swimming pool, sauna and gym with treadmill, indoor bike trainer and a Swiss ball. There’s a changing room and wet room too.

Outside space

Eadric House is surrounded by gorgeous landscaped gardens with two large lawns, plentiful flower beds and a pretty summerhouse on the back lawn. There’s also an enclosed potager (former vegetable garden) next to Buddle Barn. With outdoor furniture to seat over twenty people and two gas barbeques and a coal barbeque, you’re all set for dining outside, whilst there’s croquet and other outside games to while away an afternoon.


Eadric House has WiFi so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.


There is ample parking within the courtyard.


Two dogs are most welcome at Eadric House, it's £30 per dog per week or short break. Do ask us if you would like to bring more along.


'Fantastic holiday - the pool and games room were amazing and enjoyed by all! Everything we needed was here and we hope to be back soon. Thank you.' - August 2018

'I stayed over Easter weekend with my siblings, my mother and large numbers of assorted children between 3 and 22. We had a chef in each evening and for Easter lunch who was great . It was all in all excellent, the property is beautifully located, immaculately clean and has every facility we needed. The children swam in the warm pool, played in the tree house, and played in the play barn. The adults took long walks to the pubs , swam and made cocktails. It was wonderfully quiet and peaceful and so cosy with all the woodbyrners. We will be back ...' - March 2018
