“Beautiful little bolthole”

person found this review helpful

I feel so lucky to have stumbled across the granary barn after a wonderful few days spent on Sarah and Nick's farm. The cottage itself is beautifully finished with everything you need to be comfortable and then some. The views of the hills are lovely and the farm itself has so much charm. Nick and Sarah were very accommodating and so quick to answer all my (many) questions before arrival. We didn't have as much time as we would have liked to explore the area further as we were committed to non stop wedding celebrations so we will most certainly be back to enjoy the peace and surroundings.

“Lovely weekend stay”
Reviewed February 12, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed this weekend and had a great time. The barn is very nicely done and the rooms are great sizes and the kitchen it well equipped. The dogs on the farm were our favourite thing, especially scruff who was always there to greet us and even joined us on a walk.

We ate at the restaurant which is owned by the farm (Home Farm Cafe) which was very nice although it did take a while for the food to come out - however when you see the size of the kitchen it's no wonder. Good food and we had 3 courses with wine for £50.

Only negative would be the bed which was a bit hard and the linen could be nicer.

We had a great weekend and would stay again.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate you taking the time to write.
The dogs are little gems and can be bribed quite easily with chews! We are really pleased you had a lovely stay. Thank you for visiting the café too, the food that comes out of the tiny kitchen is testament to our talented chefs/team. Re the linen and the 'hard' bed, we're sorry you feel that way. We hope that if you return you may like to consider staying in our Mill Cottage which has a lovely super-king sized bed. Sending regards to you from Dartmoor.

“Idyllic”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a three night stay at The Granary Barn recently as we were attending a wedding in Newton Abbot and wanted to extend our break to a day either side.

Although the accommodation is off the beaten track it is near enough to all of the action and the local taxi firm were cheap and very reliable.

Sarah and her family were helpful but not intrusive and there is a wealth of information and maps in the Barn.

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!

“Perfect.”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

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.

Lurcombe Farm is nestled in a valley not far from the nearest village of Ashburton and around a 30 minute drive from Exeter. Obviously you could make the trip off the farm to explore the local area but you don't need to use the car at all if you don't wish - the owners have thought of everything you could possibly want or need for your stay; a welcome basket of milk, bread and fresh eggs (from Lurcombe farm itself) to books, DVDs and board games in case the rain holds you to ransom indoors. Mind you, with a view like the one we had from our window, you won't want to venture far and we can recommend taking a pair of wellies to explore the farm and the scenery it has to offer - the farm dogs Scruff and Holly might even join you.

Practically speaking, the bed was comfy, the bathroom immaculate and the kitchen well-equipped. We would highly recommend The Granary to anyone who wishes to have a relaxing break in Devon - it is simply perfect.

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed July 10, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had the loveliest of weekend breaks here. It was our honeymoon and the owners put up 'just married' bunting and a rose petal heart on the bed. Great hosts, very friendly. Happy & sweet dogs. Clean & comfy cottage. Thank you for a lovely stay.

“Beautiful comfortable tranquil ”
Reviewed July 10, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had the most lovely stay here Fri 8th July-Sun 20th July 2016.
What a beautiful cottage The Granary is. So spacious comfortable and tranquil.
We loved it start to finish...we took a lovely walk around the grounds and the woodland trail.
Also the Home Farm Cafe was a fantastic place to eat.
We ate there on Saturday evening and everything was totally perfect in fact it was faultless.
Thankyou so much for our stay and look forward to staying again in the future sometime when we are child free next
