“A very relaxing stay in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a lovely 4 night stay in the Granary at Lurcombe Cottages. It was very comfortable and peaceful, and we had everything that we needed. It was very handy for some fantastic walks on Dartmoor. Nick was very welcoming and the dogs enjoyed taking us for a walk around the farm. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

“Tranquil”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We really enjoyed staying at The Granary. Wonderful people and wonderful dogs. My husband is not a dog lover but he was really drawn to the dogs. There is a very warm and friendly atmosphere and we highly recommend this place. There are some very nice places to visit nearby, including Haytor, Bovey Tracey, Ashburton and Torquay. Only one small critique is the mattress - slightly too firm - however, that is just our personal preference. The decor and layout of the accommodation is at a very high standard and is well looked after. It's an extremely relaxing place to come back to after a day out. Overall, we would definitely visit this place again. Thank you to Nick, Sarah and the rest of the family for making us feel at home.

Hi, thanks for the review, sorry we are only just replying...
it's funny the review after yours talks about the bed in The Mill being the comfiest they can remember...if you get a chance to stay again, please try The Mill as it may suit your preference.
Have a great autumn and please don't hesitate to get in touch if we can lend you the dogs in the future :) Sarah & Nick

Thanks for the lovely comments, the A-MA-ZING was a great e-mail to wake up too!

Really pleased you enjoyed the fishing too, it's idyllic down at the pond especially from spring to autumn.

All the best and we hope to see you again, if you do get a chance have a look at The Mill which has a Super King Bed whcih is simply enormous...all the best, Nick & Sarah
