“Lovely quiet apartment in a beautiful valley.”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2015

Easy to get out and about. Would go back for another visit. Sarah & Nick were very helpful. You are able to walk around the farm.

So great you had such a nice trip. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Take Care! Sarah and Nick

“Perfect Getaway”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2015

We were looking for a peaceful place to celebrate my fiancées birthday and we definitely found that perfect place. The barn is located at the bottom of the quiet farms long driveway. The views are breathtaking and the welcome we received from both Nick & the dogs was very warm! We expected The Granary to be clean and tidy and it was. We were surprised though how cosy and homely the place felt. Everything was thought of and it was very spacious. You genuinely feel that you are in the middle of nowhere. We didn't hear the other guests and the family in the farmhouse were not intrusive at all which is something I was originally a little worried about. The location in general we thought was ideal. Although you can't walk to the nearest pub/village, it was only a very short drive away. You can explore all the local attractions with ease too. All in all an incredible find and a very enjoyable time was had. We certainly didn't want to leave - needless to say we recommend this amazing place to EVERYONE and we hope to be back soon.

Thankyou for the great review, its lovely to hear back on your break with us and really pleased that you had a good evening at Home Farm Cafe too, we're introducing an offer shortly inviting current/past guests to book in advance with a discount of 25% for repeat bookings, please don't hesitate in touch if we can help you in the future, all the best, Nick & Sarah

“A relaxing break in beautiful Devon”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2015

We spent three days at The Granary at Lurcombe after our Devon wedding. We immediately felt at home and relaxed as soon as we arrived. Lurcombe is in a beautiful and peaceful spot, and The Granary is very homely. We had been impressed by the Lurcombe website but in reality it was even better. Nick and Sarah sent a lovely welcome email upon booking and gave us lots of useful info to help us make the most of our stay. If you like dogs then you have the bonus of Lurcombe's resident canines. They welcome strokes and cuddles and will lead you on a walk around the lanes and nearby fields. They are extremely well behaved and we loved having them around. But if we didn't have time to hang out with them they were quite happy to find alternative entertainment. There is all the local information you'd need in a folder in The Granary, and a thoughtful gift of eggs, milk and a bottle of wine upon arrival. We also really liked the nice touch of 'just married' bunting hung up for us too! The kitchen has everything you need, the bathroom is spacious, as is the bedroom which has a huge and very comfortable bed. The Granary had all the space we needed and didn't feel cramped at all. Lurcombe is well located on the edge of Dartmoor and so there are plenty of things to see and do in the area. We went to Ashburton (delicious pasties in the deli there), Widecombe, Haytor and Burrator Reservoir. We will definitely be back as there is so much more we want to do. Thanks so much to Nick and Sarah for creating such a lovely place to stay. We look forward to our next visit! Kathryn & Josh

Thanks Kathryn & Josh, we hope married life is going well and you are having an amazing autumn, if we can help you with a short break or longer stay in the future, please don't hesitate to e-mail us direct, all the best, Sarah & Nick

“A-MAZ-ING!!”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2015

Your stay begins with a genuinely warm welcome and 3 curious dogs - Holly, Pumpkin and Scruff who are wonderful - I'm NOT an animal person either!. Nick and Sarah are the perfect hosts, never seen unless you need anything at all. The property is absolutely divine, real olde worlde courtyard. Nestled in a beautiful valley. Locally there are plenty of pubs and restaurants to choose from. The pond is stocked with some good carp, running to double figures - don't expect to get monsters but do expect one hell of a fight, these are wild carp and fight like tigers - I LOVED IT! My only 'gripe' would be the mattress was too firm for my personal liking - that's not to say it's uncomfortable - it's my personal preference. Sorry to leave and really enjoyed our stay here - thanks to Nick and Sarah.

Thanks for the lovely comments, the A-MA-ZING was a great e-mail to wake up too! Really pleased you enjoyed the fishing too, it's idyllic down at the pond especially from spring to autumn. All the best and we hope to see you again, if you do get a chance have a look at The Mill which has a Super King Bed whcih is simply enormous...all the best, Nick & Sarah

“Perfect property in a peaceful location”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2015

We chose the Granary after reading other positive reviews and were certainly not left disappointed. The Granary is situated on a working farm, but is still very peaceful. The location is ideal to explore Dartmoor and Torquay is only 30 minutes away if you wish to visit the seaside for the day. Nick couldn't of been more helpful and we made three new friends in the form of Holly, Patch and Scruff - the resident dogs! The property is clean tidy and nicely set out, the shower is certainly one of the best I've had!

Thankyou for staying with us and for the great comments, we're improving all the time and it is lovely to hear your views, hope to see you soon, Sarah & Nick

“beautiful location and lovely apartment”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2015

The apartment is lovely, very well equipped and comfortably furnished. The bed is very comfy and the shower is fantastic. The farm is in a beautiful valley, 15 minutes drive from Hay Tor where there are some lovely walks and so close to the A38 that getting to the coast etc is really easy. We enjoyed playing tennis one morning and absolutely loved having the dogs around (who are incredibly well behaved, I was very impressed). Nick was so helpful when we got a puncture - quickly fixed at a local garage. We loved our stay on Dartmoor!

Thanks for the lovely comments, the moor is so beautiful it speak s for itself, we just add the comfort! Great the tyre was fixed so easily and so good you got to have a pre-wimbledon warm up! Hope to see you again int he future, all the best, Sarah & Nick

“Fabulous location and facilities”

Reviewed 30 Mar 2015

We had a wonderful time despite the English weather and would highly recommend to other couples. The apartment had everything we needed and was clean and beautifully furnished

Yes, the weather was a bit 'mixed' last week! Thanks very much for staying and your comments about The Granary, i'll pass that on to Sarah & Housekeeping, hope to see you in the future,Best Regards, Nick
