Gorgeous Grown Up Barn Conversion for couples. AA 5*
**Special Offer** 20% discount to website rates on all bookings for 2 nights or more.
Lurcombe is a working Farm and some of the buildings have been lovingly converted into this luxury Barn Conversion (The Granary) & luxury Cottage (The Mill).
'The Mill' 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 4 Ponds along the stream. The ground is slightly sloping and we also have big 'Devon Hills'!
The cottage is first class and oozes character and charm (ornate mantlepiece, superking 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!

"Fantastic stay in beautiful cottage"
We had a wonderful stay here over the bank holiday (2 adults, 1 infant). Cottage is freshly decorated and fully equipped with everything you will need for a home away from home. Nick (the owner) was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended.

"Perfect escape from the real world!"
Visiting Devon for a wedding, thought we would make a mini holiday of it. Lurcombe Farm offered a perfect, tranquil home from home, the finishing touches made it so welcoming from the fresh eggs, milk and boftle of wine to the offer of freely taking the lovely farm dogs out for a walk... more like they walked us! Was a great escape from the real world of work and house work! Very sad to have to leave :( so much to do locally also, such a beautiful area we haven't stopped taking photos! Would recomend to anyone!

"Beautiful and peaceful"
We stayed here on 25th July 2014 and were met with a warm welcome by Nick and Sarah, and their lovely dogs Pumpkin, Scruff and little Holly. Definitely a hidden gem - The whole place was beautiful, quiet and peaceful and overlooked stunning scenery. We couldn't of wished for a better place to spend the weekend, with some places to eat, Paignton Seafront and Zoo and Becky Falls all within a short car journey away. We would definitely recommend this place to any couple looking for a romantic retreat!
Thankyou for the lovely feedback, have a great rest of the summer, hope to see you again soon, All the best, Nick

We booked this last minute and from the photos and talking to Nick I was very excited about staying at Lurcombe Cottages in The Mill. When we arrived we were greeted by the most gorgeous views and the loveable Scruff, Pumpkin & Holly. The Mill was absolutely beautiful and my boyfriend and I were so amazed at how perfect everything was, right down to the finer details. Nick and Sarah were very friendly and great at giving advise on what to see or where to go. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a relaxing weekend away to come and visit Lurcombe Cottages. We will definitely be returning again!
Thanks Sophia very much, have a great summer, all the best, Sarah & Nick

"A relaxing weekend"
A well furnished little cottage on a lovely little farm just on the edge of Dartmoor. We had a lovely relaxing weekend break here. We were greeted by the owner Nick and 3 very friendly dogs, Pumpkin, Holly and Scruff. Nick was very welcoming, giving us some great tips about what to do in the local area. On his recommendation we climbed Haytor Rocks for some fantastic views of the moors before having a great pub lunch at the Ruddlestone (huge portions). This place is a hidden gem if you want a break in the countryside and great value for money. We'll definitely be coming back in the near future!
Thankyou very much for your comments, have a great summer, we look forward to seeing you again in the future in our little part of the world...

"The farm has stunning scenery and very friendly/helpful owners"
The farm was just as described on the web site,hidden away from view in a green and peaceful valley. The views as you progress down the driveway to the farm are stunning.
We were met by Sarah and Nick who treated us as friends rather than just guests. They also have 3 lovely dogs who love nothing more than being your guides around the farm.
The accommodation was of a very high standard and it would be easy to have a very relaxing holiday without ever leaving the farm. We stayed in the Mill cottage which has a lovely bedroom and a bed which is best described as massive!
The farm is well located for days out, Totnes and Dartmouth being our favourites(the steam trains at Buckfastleigh are also well worth a visit)
The local shops are at Ashburton-which is a nice town with lots of interesting shops.
I did a little fishing at the farm which was both a challenge and very rewarding.
The tennis court was out of use when we stayed but that was being addressed as we left.
All in all this was a lovely place to stay .The owners and their extended family were great .
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful peaceful setting you will find all you need here.
Thanks for everything Kevin and Karen
