November 2017 – we’re delighted to receive our Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for both properties!
I just wanted to say thank you so much for a wonderful weekend at The Granary. The whole farm was superb! We did a bit of exploring, met the dogs and generally enjoyed the fresh air. The cottage was just beautiful and so well equipped. If only real life hadn’t been calling, we could have stayed all week!
Well worth the visit
We stayed at Lurcombe for a quick break away from our hectic lives. It was the perfect blend of relaxation and welly walks around the farm. Would completely recommend and very much hope to come back again soon!
Perfect. The most beautiful place.
We booked a last minute weekend away and ended up booking an additional night. We really felt so at home here and enjoyed some amazing walks with Holly and Scruff. Our favourite moment was relaxing with a bottle of wine overlooking the fishing lake. Thank you for a truly outstanding stay.
Delightful Stay in The Mill. We didn’t want to leave! What an amazing little gem!
We left London for a much needed countryside break and we were so lucky to stumble upon this place. Really comfortable living space with lovely little touches to make it feel really homely. We loved coming back after a day exploring the moor. The barn definitely has the wow factor.
The Great Escape!
My boyfriend and I stayed here for our anniversary weekend. Photos don’t do this magical place justice. Driving down the lane towards the courtyard offers the most spectacular views across the landscape and we immediately relaxed. The views, the dogs, the countryside – it really is an amazing place to spend time.
The Homely Touch
The Granary Barn is a lovely accommodation in a great location. Perfect location for exploring the area and really a comfortable place to stay. The Granary Barn is bright, spacious, modern with a beautiful view over the countryside. Everything had a very homely touch.
We loved exploring Dartmoor and coming back to this amazing cosy home. We only wished we could’ve stayed longer – a perfect getaway!
What a magical place!
The sound of birdsong in the morning was the best way to wake up. It felt like a real retreat staying at Lurcombe and we loved peering out of the little window in the Cottage every morning to see those beautiful rolling hills! We will certainly miss that view!
The perfect place to spend Christmas
It was so lovely to be whisked away to Lurcombe for Christmas. The Cottage is stunning and immediately makes you feel so rested. We absolutely loved our stay and it was so sad to leave! Enjoying a festive break away, this really was the perfect place to unwind.
We’d love to Return
The cottage was just what we needed at the time – so well equipped and in a beautiful location. One of the best places we have stayed in – we’d love to return.
We don’t want to go home
Staying in The Granary was bliss. We loved everything about the stay and the tranquillity of this beautiful cottage in the most stunning valley. We really don’t want to go home and hope to return soon!
Beautiful cottage in stunning location
We stayed at The Mill for a special weekend away as part of a wedding gift and it is the perfect romantic getaway. The stay was just what we wanted and more – the owners were very friendly and had time to chat and make sure that we were enjoying our stay as we were coming and going. The cottage is beautifully decorated and feels modern but fits in with the country setting.
The accommodation itself was immaculate. Clean, comfortable with everything you could need. We shall definitely be returning to explore Dartmoor more and to for a total switch off!
My partner and I stayed in The Granary for a two-night break and simply cannot find fault with any aspect of our stay. The hosts are incredibly welcoming, the accommodation is presented beautifully and the location is second-to-none. We are very lucky to have found such a peaceful and idyllic place to stay.
Lovely and Peaceful
Myself and my girlfriend had a very nice stay here at the Granary(June 2016), the location is very quiet and peaceful with great views, the accommodation itself has a very nice rustic feel to it and is a very nice place to spend the night!
We had a peaceful stay in the ‘Granary’. Location is absolutely fantastic! Its less than 10 minutes from the nearest main road, but once you enter the farm it seems like you are in a far remote hillside. Sarah & Nick are great hosts , they made us feel very welcome!
Attention to Detail – Best Cottage Ever!
These guys have done an amazing job with the place and everything about it has attention to detail. They have thought of everything for your stay and the location itself is just perfect. If you are looking to get away from a hectic life and enjoy your time, this is the place.
Heaven in Devon!
This is our second stay with Nick and Sarah.
Once again the beautiful and relaxed setting provided us with the ability to unwind and enjoy the stunning surroundings. The Mill provides everything you need and so much more , like the fresh eggs, milk and wine awaiting you on arrival.
Took the usual route of the online search for a quiet property within easy reach of the start of a trail race I had entered (puretrail.uk). The directions to the property were spot on and the location & property itself were idyllic. We were warmly greeted upon arrival & all ‘amenities’ advertised were available. We would definitely stay here again.
Staying at Lurcombe felt like a breath of fresh air – and not just for the beautiful countryside. The whole trip was super-relaxed, Sarah & Nick were such great hosts and we had everything we wanted. A hidden gem nestled into the Devonshire hills.
So so quiet….
Booked The Granary to have a peaceful and quiet few days away, we were certainly not disappointed ……. I have not slept so well in a long time, the location is ideal , isolated but not too far from local amenities. Spent the Saturday up on the Moor walking for five hours and it was bliss returning to a warm house and a piping hot shower,. The accommodation is immaculately clean, with everything you need, and more. If you are looking for a piece of sanity this is for you, no hassle, no traffic just peace and quiet. The owners are extremely thoughtful, helpful ,but never intrusive. I wish them every success in the future, they deserve it!!!
Lovely quiet cottage in a beautiful valley.
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.
A wonderful stay- once again!
Our third stay in The Mill and once again it provided a warm and comfortable base for walks on the moor and in the valleys. Nick and Sarah are the perfect hosts- always ready to help but never intrusive on your privacy. They go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure everything is perfect for you.
My fiance and I stayed here for a long weekend at the beginning of October for his 30th birthday. Everything was absolutley perfect and the cottage was decorated beautifully. The complimentary eggs, milk and coffee were a lovely touch too. Nick was very hospitable and friendly to both of us ( as were the two dogs!) It was very peaceful at the farm and the walks around the farm were very enjoyable. We had a cozy night in on the second night and ate at the Rugglestone Inn one night and The Carpenters Arms which both are a short drive away. We have both gushed to all our family and friends about the wonderful time we had here and are going to be coming back soon!
I would highly recommend Nick & Sarah’s property to anyone. They were extremely welcoming and along with their farm staff you would not know it was a working farm as it is so peaceful and tranquil. The photographs on the website of ‘The Mill’ do not do the property justice, we had everything we needed and more and there were numerous personal touches such as a bottle of wine, fresh milk and eggs waiting for our arrival.
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.
The Granary is a tasteful conversion with all amenities and stunning views across the hills. We loved it! Nick and Sarah are genuinely lovely hosts who are helpful and kind when needed but otherwise unobtrusive. The farm is an amazing place, full of old restored farm implements and has its own lake at the bottom where you can sit. The dogs are friendly and welcome you on arrival. I highly recommend.
“So cozy, homely & relaxing…the best night sleep ever, we will definitely be back…”
