“Absolutely Outstanding”

Reviewed February 23, 2015 NEW

Our stay was fantastic, the accommodation is first class. We enjoyed the location and were welcomed by fantastic hosts along with the very friendly dogs who actually took us for a walk and showed us the hillside! We highly recommend this to everyone.

“A truly magical place to stay”

5 of 5 starsReviewed January 27, 2015 NEW

It’s hard to describe in words how much we enjoyed staying at Lurcombe. Not only did it live up to very high expectations we’d developed (derived from the photos, description & other reviews) but actually exceeded them! Though not far from the A38, Lurcombe is, as the description will tell you, beautifully nestled away in a hidden valley… We stayed in the Mill. It was spacious, clean & very comfortable – the open plan kitchen & lounge gave it a great feel, and the bedroom was fantastic, with an amazing ‘super’ king size bed! There’s a small hatch above the bed so you can peek out over the rolling hills in the mornings as you plan your day, just beautiful…we spent the Saturday walking around Haytor & over to Hound Tor, which are about 3 miles away from Lurcombe. Saturday evening we went to the lovely Rugglestone in at Widecombe on the Moor, and on Sunday we wondered into nearby village Ilsington to another great pub – The Carpenters Arms…As we found out, it’s very difficult to understand the magic of this place without visiting. We would highly recommend it and are already planning our next visit! Thank you.

“Cosy, warm, homely and well located!”

Reviewed November 20, 2014

I stayed at The Mill for 3 nights in November – it is a lovely, cosy, comfortable place to stay near all the main Dartmoor sights. It is clean, well equipped and has stunning views. It’s location is perfect, near lovely Ashburton with a superb choice of independent shops yet near unspoilt Dartmoor for great hiking, views and space! It is peaceful and has an amazingly comfortable bed to relax in after an active day….There are maps and plenty of locational advice to utilise.

“Wonderful accommodation, ideally situated.”

The Mill was a warm and comfortable cottage, with Nick and Sarah close by and always ready to help and advise. Lurcombe is an excellent location, both in terms of its nearness to the stunning south- eastern side of the moor, and also its proximity to the A38. We walked every day of our week-long stay, on the moors and in the wooded valleys, and were bowled away by the breathtaking views and autumn colours. The dogs always gave us an enthusiastic welcome on our return home each evening! We can’t wait to return!

“Glorious cosy country retreat”

Reviewed October 24, 2014

What a wonderful place. The cottage itself – the Mill was fabulous really nicely done and everything one could ask for – including THE most amazing bed ever. Fabulously comfortable and beautifully styled. Location is perfect very near Ashburton which is lovely and right on the edge of the moors. Even the farm itself has lovely walks, not to mention the company of the lovely resident dogs! Nick and Sarah are lovely hosts and have done a great job on these cottages, incredibly welcoming and hospitable. Cannot rate this place highly enough we will definitely be back.

“First class accommodation in a beautiful setting”

We had a really enjoyable break and hope to return soon. Made to feel very welcome, amazing views and really friendly well behaved dogs.

“Quiet and restful with friendly animals as well as hosts”

Reviewed September 9, 2014

Easy to find with the directions given and lived up to our expectations. Nick. Sarah, children and dogs all happy to see us and definitely had the interests of their guests at heart. A well furnished accommodation in a tranquil setting was just what we needed. Knowing the area beforehand was a bonus but the first time visitor would have plenty of guidance from the hosts on local places of interest and places to eat and drink…The farm is within easy reach of main roads so access to places of interest in the South West is no problem. We saw our first shooting star from the farm window as light pollution is minimal and would have no problems in recommending the property to other potential holiday makers.

The Granary was the perfect self-catering holiday destination for a couple to explore both Dartmoor and the South West coast. To come back and relax in the wonderful accommodation with amazing views was perfect. It was so well equipped with everything we needed and more, including fresh eggs from the chickens!  Can’t recommend it highly enough. Thank you for a fabulous stay”

“The Perfect Escape from the Real World!  

Reviewed August 2014

Lurcombe offered a perfect, tranquil home from home, the finishing touches made it so welcoming from the fresh eggs, milk and bottle of wine to the offer of freely taking the lovely farm dogs out for a walk… more like they walked us!  Very sad to have to leave :( so much to do locally also, such a beautiful area we haven’t stopped taking photos! Would recommend to anyone!
