Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Lurcombe is a working Farm of some 40 Acres and parts of the buildings have been lovingly converted into luxury Apartments (The Granary & 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 apartments are first class (The Granary and The Mill) that ooze character and charm (vaulted ceilings,beams,chandeliers, ornate mantlepiece, king sized beds, 'sunken' showers, 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!
