Barn | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Lurcombe is a working Farm and parts of the buildings have been lovingly converted into this 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!

"Comfortable and homely stay in beautiful surroundings"
We've have a fantastic stay in the Granary in Lurcombe. My husband, our 9 month old daughter and me stayed in the Granary Apartment for 5 nights.
The owners are friendly and helpful. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine, fresh eggs from the chickens on the farm and a pint of milk. They also provided us with a good travel cot for our daughter. There are lots of brochures and books with walks, tips and information about the area and things to do.
The apartment is really comfortable and homely. The atmosphere is great, with oak beams on the ceiling, nice sofas, great king sized beds and a thick, luxury carpet. The farm dogs Pumpkin, Scruff and Holly are also lovely.
The best part of the apartment however, are its surroundings. When you look out of the window, you see the cattle in the field. It's located in a green, peaceful valley and also really close to Dartmoor National Park, which is stunningly beautiful.
Thank you so much for this lovely review. We hope this message finds you all well! Wonderful to hear back from you - our very best wishes and thanks. Sarah, Nick and family.

"Luxury in rural, relaxed surroundings"
Really lovely self catering accommodation on a fabulous working farm. The two apartments have been furnished to an extremely high standard and the little extras were lovely - complimentary eggs, wine and milk. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and you are free to wander round the farm with the resident dogs ! The owners - Nick and Sarah couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. We were there over Easter weekend and were invited to join in the family Easter Egg hunt and join them in the farmhouse for tea later !! Would highly recommend and we will be back !
Thank you so much for your lovely review. Goodness me, how time flies, we can't believe y9ou stayed back in March! Hope all well with you both and look forward to welcoming you back to Lurcombe very soon. All our very best wishes and thanks, Sarah and Nick

"A Hidden Gem!"
I decided to book this idyllic and wonderful luxury accommodation for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and could not have chosen better. I trusted my instinct based on an excellent pictorial website and the initial contact with the owners Sarah and Nick. The first impressions after a drive down the private road could not have been more impressive in its natural valley setting amongst the rolling hills, neither could the warm and professional greeting from our host, in this case Sarah who took us around a wonderfully decorated apartment with sunken shower, modern kitchen, warm and cosy living room and bedroom with wooden beams, the whole place was full of character. Oh, a bottle of wine was complimentary, as were the chocolates, milk, coffee, tea and free range eggs amongst other condiment items. Everything has been thought of, including walking maps, DVD's books, magazines etc. The farm offers a lovely close proximity walk and is almost 100% in bounds to guests. Included in the warm hospitality are the dogs - Scruffy, Pumpkin and Holly who all take to you as is they have known you forever (the treats in a jar in the kitchen are a good ice breaker!) They are constant companions when walking the land. I would recommend this value for money luxurious accommodation to anyone although I hope that the review will not make it too impossible to re-book for a second experience at this "Hidden Gem" later in the year! Thank You Nick and Sarah A*
We are so thrilled that you enjoyed Lurcombe and that you had such a wonderful experience. Thank you so so so much for your review. It means the world to us and we're really thankful that you've taken the time to write down your thoughts. We look forward to your second visit and send our very best regards to you both! Thank You, Sarah and Nick
