    “Have just spent a week in August in The Coach House.”

    The house is very comfortable and accommodated our family of 11 from the age of 4 to 70 very well, plus Honey the dog. The weather was warm but it was overcast with occasional showers most days. The outdoor pool was just across from the house and we made good use of that every day, then had a dip in the indoor pool and warmed up in the sauna. We had bikes with us and cycled part of the Devon coast to coast cycle route and Drakes way cycle route. Made good use of the tennis court and games room, ...

    The house is very comfortable and accommodated our family of 11 from the age of 4 to 70 very well, plus Honey the dog. The weather was warm but it was overcast with occasional showers most days. The outdoor pool was just across from the house and we made good use of that every day, then had a dip in the indoor pool and warmed up in the sauna. We had bikes with us and cycled part of the Devon coast to coast cycle route and Drakes way cycle route. Made good use of the tennis court and games room, and walked through the farm onto the moors, so a very active week! We loved Tavistock for easy shopping and fish and chips. Enjoyed a pub meal in Lydford one evening. And for our last evening meal together bought a leg of lamb from the farm and with some vegetables from the walled garden, next door to the house, had a delicious dinner. Another summer holiday with the family making memories.

For you to stay in are The Farmhouse, The Coach House about 100 yards up the private lane, or The Red Barn a mile away. The owners live nearby but out of sight and do B&B in their own house a mile away by car or a 10 minute walk across Burnville Farm, is The Red Barn, surrounded by its own enclosed garden with terrace (barbecue) at the back and splendid long views over farmland to the moor.

The property

There are few more picturesque places than this Dartmoor farmstead surrounded by trees at the end of a private farm lane.

Along the lane is this spacious coach house, complete with your own indoor swimming pool, games room and sauna, meaning the family will never be bored, whatever the weather brings.

The accommodation is elegant and comfortable with lots of windows and big rooms to relax in.

Chill out by the open fire in the big living room fireplace, gather around the table or the piano in the dining room which opens to a patio, or cook up a storm in the smart kitchen.

A den with wood burner and second TV is another cosy room, and the children get their own little snug with toys too.

Upstairs, the master double with its handsome mahogany bed boasts an en suite shower room, and there are four more bedrooms.

The beauty of this wonderful farmstead is the range of activities available, with a shared outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, games room and gym.

You can wander where you choose on the 250 acre farm, with its pond, animals and plentiful wildlife, and help too if you bring your wellies.

Get stuck into country pursuits in the shape of clay pigeon shooting, archery and mountain biking, or bring your own horses on holiday and ride on the moors which are just beyond the farm’s fields (small extra charges may apply).

You will eat like kings on this traditional farm, with eggs and fresh seasonal veg often available, or the friendly owner provides a sumptuous menu of evening meals; for eating out, Lydford is renowned for its two excellent food pubs.

If you can tear yourselves away from the farm, there is dramatic Dartmoor to explore by foot, bicycle or car, plunging Lydford Gorge and a ruined castle.

Water sports are on offer at Roadford Lake and Tavistock is an historic market town full of interest.

This is an ideal spot for a family holiday with lots to do on site or in the area.

About the location

LYDFORD

Tavistock 6 miles; Okehampton 6 miles.

Nestling among mature woodland on the western slopes of Dartmoor, the historic village of Lydford is a jewel in this area of outstanding scenic beauty. To the north, just half a mile away, the high tors come right down to the village edge, while to the south the River Lyd winds its way through Lydford Forest on its tumbling course northwards. Lydford village has an interesting medieval castle and nearby Lydford Gorge (National Trust) with its peaceful woodland walks and White Lady waterfall is a must. The village also has a Post Office, pub and award-winning restaurant. Whether walking the moors, fishing, watching the amazing wildlife or just visiting the many attractions of this stunningly beautiful area, you'll never be lost for something to do. The moorland market towns of Tavistock and Okehampton are both a short drive away.
