**Special Offer** - 25% Early Booking Discount for 2015 on all bookings for 3 nights or more.
The 'Shippon' has been lovingly converted into a luxury Barn Conversion (The Granary) & luxury Cottage (The Mill).
'The Granary' truly is an exquisite place to stay – a countryside retreat and the perfect location to escape from the world. We are located in a hidden valley that slopes down to a small stream. There are four ponds along the stream. The ground is slightly sloping and we also have big 'Devon Hills'!
The barn conversion is first class and oozes character and charm (vaulted ceilings,beams,chandeliers, king sized bed, 'sunken' shower, leather sofas, easy chairs, thick pile carpets/rugs).
We offer a Bottle of Wine, eggs (from our chickens) and milk on your arrival.
Set in an Idyllic countryside retreat with woodland walks set in glorious rolling Devon hills we have a small fishing lake and ponds filled with carp. A Tennis court is available for you (please borrow our rackets and have a friendly game!), alongside our workshop and secure storage for bikes.
A bird watchers paradise (goshawks, buzzards, owls, ducks) we have excellent Dartmoor walks and we are very near to Haytor, Widecombe in the Moor, Ashburton, Totnes and Hound Tor (made famous by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles). We are 5/10 minutes from the A38 Expressway and very accessible.
As we are a farm, we have animals who are looked after extremely well - our native breed cattle (born and raised on Dartmoor), our chickens and our three extremely handsome dogs, Holly, Pumpkin and Scruff!

"Quiet and restful with friendly animals as well as hosts"
Easy to find with the directions given and lived up to our expectations. Nick. Sarah, children and dogs all happy to see us and definitely had the interests of their guests at heart. A well furnished accommodation in a tranquil setting was just what we needed. Knowing the area beforehand was a bonus but the first time visitor would have plenty of guidance from the hosts on local places of interest and places to eat and drink. No mobile phone signal in the property as we already knew from previous holidays in some areas of Dartmoor but the signal returned a short way up the drive. BBC television stations could be a bit iffy but again we have had this problem before in Dartmoor and it made no difference to our holiday enjoyment. The farm is within easy reach of main roads so access to places of interest in the South West is no problem. We saw our first shooting star from the farm window as light pollution is minimal and would have no problems in recommending the property to other potential holiday makers.
Thanks Michael, we'll keep our eyes peeled for some more shooting stars, all the very best, Nick & Sarah

Beautifully decorated cottage, very well furnished to a high standard, in a lovely setting and with great views. The dogs at the farm are adorable, but most of all Nick and Sarah are lovely people who make a difference in their service with thoughtful touches such as wine/eggs/milk on arrival and give you great tips of where to go. Thank you for a fantastic first holidays with our 1 month old little girl. We will come back!
Thanks for the lovely comments, hope you had a good trip back, have a lovely rest of the summer, Sarah & Nick

"Peace and Tranquility"
We have just returned from a brilliant weeks stay at The Granary, one of the two properties available at Lurcombe. We had a lovely peaceful week getting away from it all, in beautiful secluded surroundings. Lurcombe itself is idyllic with stunning views across the farmland. Whilst it is a working farm this did not disturb us at all. The Granary is a very well appointed luxury barn conversion and occupies the upper floor, accessed by stairs (the other holiday rental, The Mill is below). The property was perfect for our week in Devon, and we had everything we needed. Nick & his family were very welcoming, as were the 3 lovely dogs who greeted us every time we appeared. The property is conveniently located a few minutes from the main road but you would never know as it is so secluded and you can't hear the main road across the hills. All in all a great place to stay for a quiet retreat from busy life - a little bit of paradise! Would definitely recommend!

A great find for a part of the world we love and we look forward to visiting again. Spacious, well appointed, cosy and private accommodation. Idyllic, quiet setting. Great for getting to the moors and South Hams. Minutes from A38.
