Lurcombe Luxury Cottages are nestled into this spectacular valley...
It was a 'climb' to get this shot! Here we are overlooking the living room!
Lots of little touches makes this barn feel like home
Little touches give this barn character!
The bedroom with gorgeous reclaimed oak King-Size bed & plenty of soft furnishings..
Our tennis court overlooks the hills - rackets & balls are provided, alongside use of the court..
A short drive away from Lurcombe are the exquisite Tors of Dartmoor...
The Granary Barn sits in the valley - its secluded, tranquil and romantic.
'Charming, rustic, luxurious & homely'
The barn is only a stones throw from gorgeous woodland walks & has its own pretty little patio.
Dartmoor Stone Circles - only a short drive from the Granary barn...
Situated only a few miles away from Dartmoors iconic Tors, this is the perfect spot for Moor & Coast
Haytor -  a natural beauty spot - only 3 miles from Lurcombe...

“Idyllic city escape”
Reviewed 3 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Stumbling across The Granary online turned out to be the find of the year! An absolutely stunning apartment in an idyllic location.

Sarah and Nick couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming, from our initial enquiry email right up until our reluctant departure - the perfect hosts.

The Granary is beautifully decorated and has everything (and more) you need for the most relaxing break.

If the weather had been better we may have ventured out more but it gave us the perfect excuse to unwind and do nothing!

We will undoubtedly be recommending The Granary to friends and family, although hope this won't make booking too difficult for a return visit!

Thanks for a wonderful stay - the perfect way to see in 2013.

“A beautiful location for a relaxing break”
Reviewed 25 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We spent 3 nights at The Granary and had a lovely time. Everyone is so friendly including the dogs who accompany you on walks round the farm. This was an absolute joy for someone who is unable to have a dog in the city. The Granary itself is a wonderful space and extremely cosy at this time of year. The farm is beautifully kept and the owners are busy adding more enhancements. The mid-winter surroundings are spectacular but we look forward to returning in the summer when it's sure to be stunning!
