From here, you can go left, right and upstairs for exploration, ready to uncover the numerous sitting rooms, drawing rooms, snugs and lounges to relax and reset in style. With gorgeous Loaf sofas adorned with thick blankets, throws and sumptuous cushions, these rooms are designed for pure comfort, whether you're looking to curl up with a book or gather together for a games or movie night. For added cosiness, each of the main living areas is dressed in soothing neutral tones and benefits from a wood burning stove to radiate warmth in cooler months.

For leisure and play, Eadric House caters to all generations with an incredible thatched games barn, complete with two playrooms. With wall-to-ceiling shelves home to a wide selection of toys, a large table for crafts, a home-cinema projector screen with surround sound system, and a bathroom, little ones can make the most of their own magical world in the children's play area.

Buddle Barn, across the courtyard, has a fabulous living area and affords a wonderfully peaceful escape.

There's even a piano and guitar if you'd like to create your own soundtrack.


What better way to celebrate a family gathering or special occasion than with food? Whether you have a culinary guru in your party or you would like to hire a private chef, Eadric House's three kitchen spaces cater to all occasions. Inside the main house, you'll find two kitchen areas, each embodying a homely, traditional style splashed with modern luxuries and featuring attractive kitchen islands. With exposed, aged beams, neutral hues and warm tones perfectly balanced throughout, they each make for wonderful spaces to rustle up hearty feasts from morning 'til night. You'll find all the equipment you could need, with a four-oven Aga, Rangemaster, American-style fridge-freezer and more. Buddle Barn houses the third kitchen, which also has its own range cooker. For indulgent meals gathered together, there are three separate dining areas to choose from inside, affording ample space for everyone to congregate and dine. The largest dining area even comes with its own honesty cocktail bar, so you can mix your favourite beverages to lend a sense of stylish occasion to those evenings at home.


There are eleven beautiful bedrooms to choose from at our dreamy homestay: nine in Eadric House, and a further two in Buddle Barn.

Inside, you will find a double bed topped with a downy duvet and throws, along with a ladder leading to an inviting mezzanine with a single bed, cosy cushions, beanbags and sheepskins. A serene space for relaxing, Cherry comes complete with a wood-topped writing desk for creativity and journaling and open shelves lined with children's books.

With lovely country vistas and a hygge-filled atmosphere, this bedroom is topped off with a spacious ensuite with his-and-hers sinks and a bathtub for bubbly soaks.

'Sycamore' is an oh-so-sweet double bedroom promising leisurely lie-ins and cosy nights. Next door to Birch, it features a sloping ceiling, exposed beams, and a low window perfect for view-gazing from the comfort of bed. Overlooked by stars and flourishing dreamy blues, it also benefits from its own ensuite with a bathtub with overhead shower.

'Beech' is accessed via another staircase and has a king-sized bed draped in ultra-fine linens and heavenly throws and cushions. With shades of grey and cream notes harmonised alongside exposed wood beams and details, this bedroom is all about comfort and calm. For moments of quietude with your latest page-turner, this room also features two cosy armchairs.

Next door to Beech is 'Apple', a charming double bedroom where soothing tones are brightened with tasteful pops of colour from striking artwork. On the bed, the highest quality linens and comfiest blankets and pillows create a beautiful cocoon for rest.

In the Area

Set on the outer fringes of Dartmoor National Park, Eadric House is perfectly placed for days of romantic exploration. Near to Devon's south coast and on the doorstep of some of the most beautiful moorland in the UK, it promises untold majesty for lovers of country and coast alike. It's also not far from a number of picturesque Devonshire towns, including Bovey Tracey, Newton Abbot, Dawlish and Teignmouth. To begin your adventures, enjoy some of the local walks nearby and head to Canonteign Falls. Just half a mile away on Canonteign Estate, the falls are the highest in the South West and a fantastic sight to behold. Perfect for all the family, the surrounding estate is also home to a super children's outdoor play area and the welcoming Canonteign Kitchen, where home-cooked food and refreshing drinks are served throughout the year.

For the walkers in your party, the web of trails that weave through Dartmoor will be hard to resist. Just eleven miles away, the craggy top of Haytor is a favourite amongst ramblers, affording far-reaching views over bracken-tufted upland and the distant coast beyond. For a coastal twist, you can easily pick up the South West Coast Path from any of the county's seaside towns and villages too, walking north or south to soak up some of the most beautiful sights imaginable. To dose up on city culture, travel to Exeter and follow its historic cobbled streets to browse shops, galleries and cafés galore. Or, for the tastiest food around, head to the Michelin star Lympstone Manor in Lympstone, Elephant in Torquay or Gidleigh Park in Chagford. The crème de la crème, these sought-after establishments offer the most flavourful, refined dishes in sophisticated settings.

Our dog friendly Dartmoor homestay is great for special celebrations and reunions, promising stunning interiors, extensive grounds and an indoor swimming pool.

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Eadric House:

A remarkable find, Eadric House is a real gem and was absolutely perfect for our extended family get together. Everything we needed for a fantastic week was provided, we made good use of the lovely pool, sauna and games rooms and we loved the beautiful furnishings and personal touches throughout… We enjoyed exploring the gardens and finding endless nooks and snugs both inside and out. Finally as an extra bonus, Canonteign waterfalls are almost at the gatepost! We all have wonderful and very happy memories of our stay.

'We were totally delighted with our stay at Eadric House. It was just perfect, meeting all our needs and it is a VERY special property. The house is beautifully designed, furnished with immaculate gardens. The playrooms and pool are invaluable and greatly used. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious with extensive outdoor seating for all. I cannot think of any possible improvements and the owners are delightful, helpful, and accessible. Everywhere was fully prepared and clean on arrival and the cleaners arrived promptly as we departed. Eadric House must be your premier property.' - August 2019

'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
