Widecombe-in-the-Moor : Michelin's recommendations
A cluster of white-walled, thatched cottages grouped around the church, sometimes called the Cathedral of the Moor, stands in a shallow valley surrounded by 460-m high granite ridges. Widecombe in the Moor is, as its name suggests, sited on Dartmoor, the largest of the five granite massifs which form the core of Southwest England.

St Pancras is a vast building that is 32m long and in the Perpendicular style, flanked with a 40m-high red granite tower. It is sometimes called the Cathedral of the Moors. The barrel vault is decorated with fine sculpted bosses.
This two-story stone house has a loggia on its façade with seven octagonal columns and dates back to 1537, when it was the village hospice.
