The perfect romantic getaway..
Lurcombe is a working Farm on the edge of Dartmoor National Park. Parts of the buildings have been lovingly converted into luxury 5* boutique accommodation. Snuggled into a hidden valley, 5 mins from the A38 Devon Expressway in Bickington, our secret valley slopes down to a small stream, where four ponds meander along the bottom of the hillside. Set in glorious ‘Devon Hills’, we pride ourselves on being able to offer short breaks and long stays on Dartmoor.
The Mill Cottage is gorgeous, with cosy oak beams, a stunning ornate mantelpiece and views overlooking rolling hills. It is the epitome of country cottage...
