    “This was a fantastic holiday from ...”

    This was a fantastic holiday from start to finish and was thoroughly enjoyed by adults and children alike. Great facilities and staff really helpful and kind. Outdoor pool, tennis court and games room particularly enjoyed and I’d definitely recommend to families whatever the age of children. Endless activities, walking and other attractions nearby. One week not long enough for us! Only issue was sat nav taking us to another farm with difficult road so would call once in area to clarify ...

The property

The Farmhouse is one of the three lovely holiday homes on Burnville Farm, looking like it came from a child’s picture book.

It is big and old and stands on the edge of the traditional Devon farmyard.

Leave your boots in the hall and head through to the comfy sitting room with its traditional beams, off which is a bright sun room for fine days.

The kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals to enjoy around the big sociable table beside the open fire in the dining room, where fascinatingly the table is an ancient dough trough.

The four comfortable bedrooms are all upstairs, peaceful places to sleep well after busy days exploring the area and enjoying the farm amenities.

Outside, you will find your own big enclosed pretty garden with lawn, trees, stream and barbecue 20 yards from the house.

Beyond this, there is as much freedom and fun as you could wish for.

You are welcome to wander the 250 acre farm and help when possible, picnic beside the pond, swim in the shared seasonal outdoor swimming pool, play tennis and use the shared games room and gym.

Maybe arrange with the friendly owners to try clay pigeon shooting and archery or hire mountain bikes and head out over the open moorland which surrounds the farm or on the Granite Way cycle trail (small extra charges may apply).

This is brilliant walking country too, or if you have horses you can bring them and ride since stabling and grazing are available.

Golf and gliding can be arranged nearby and Roadford Lake is excellent for water sports.

With so many activities available, yet in such a peaceful spot, The Farmhouse is an ideal location for a fabulous family break.

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.
