The Way of the Runner

Running and writing retreats on dartmoor with Adharanand Finn | Next retreat: 17th - 20th May 2019


Our basecamp for the retreats is Blackslade Manor, a  historic 400-year-old manor house that forms part of the Six Manors of Widecombe, and has been in existence since early medieval times. It is situated halfway up the hill in an isolated and quiet position, with views across Dartmoor and the Widecombe Valley.

The property is set within its own grounds of about 30 acres and has direct access to the moor, some of which belongs to the property.

Downstairs there is plenty of room to relax and recover after the runs, with cosy sitting rooms with log-burners and a sun room overlooking the moor.


Upstairs there are seven comfortable bedrooms, four doubles (two with en suite),  and three twins, as well as two family bathrooms.
