Devon is Heaven
Complimentary use of our tennis court, rackets &balls - the court is set within the hillside...
Beautiful Lurcombe - snuggled into the rich Devon hills...
Dartmoor stone circles - only a short drive from Lurcombe. Plenty to do - ideal for Moor & Coast
Scruff, one of our lovely dogs. The dogs love accompanying you on your walks around the farm....
Haytor - 3 miles from Lurcombe - so much to do. Town, Country, Moor and Coast all so accessible...

Fantasticactress place , great accomofation and golden Hosts. This was our best holidays in a long time. Easily accessible place within Dartmoor and most of the sandy beaches within 20 min drive. Nick and Sarah are great hosts and holly and scruff are fabulous farm/ walk guides. The view from the cottage is beautiful, calm and rejuvenating. We would definitely stay in The Mill (if available) whenever we visit Devon.

“Beautiful cottage in stunning location”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

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 bottle of wine was a nice little gesture and other supplies including tea, coffee, milk and eggs is very convenient.
We had a great time out and about as there is lots to do in the area - the purpose of our visit was to go to Bovey castle which was a special treat.

We would definitely recommend Lurcombe Luxury cottages and would like to visit again in the future.

“Peace at last”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a lovely stay at the cottage, and were welcomed by scruff and Sarah. Just wish we had more time there. The cottage was very well equipped and I hadn't needed to worry about forgetting the shower gel. We managed to get a short stroll around the ponds (one of the carp popped up to say hello). We hope to come back again, when hopefully the weather will be better and leon can see if he can catch any fishes. Thank you very much Sarah and Nick

“Very peaceful and relaxing stay!”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a lovely stay at the Mill, the views of the countryside were fantastic. The cottage was made to feel very comfortable which was exactly what we needed after a 5 hour drive. The dogs were such lovely company, they took us on a tour and were often seen outside our front door. We will definitely be visiting again!!!
