The property

... 2 miles south-west of Lydford and 1 from its gorge, 400 yards of private farm-lane end at Burnville Farm, a lovely farmstead amid beech trees. It is on the side of a shallow stream-valley with supreme views of Dartmoor hills and tors and to Brentor’s peak-top church, from almost anywhere on the 250 acre working farm (direct moor access from it). There are sheep, cattle, ponies, pigs, chickens, ornamental pheasants. You can roam the farm and help is most welcome. Stabling/grazing for your own ponies/horses; a pond (picnicking) with mallard, moorhen and usually Canada geese in spring; badgers and foxes about. Clay pigeon shooting and instruction, archery tuition (equipment provided) and mountain bikes (adults’ and children’s) by arrangement. Fenced outdoor heated swimming pool (32’ x 16’ and 3’6" to 8’ deep, available 27 May to 16 September) and hard tennis court shared with owners. Fun badminton and volleyball. Games room (6’ pool table, table tennis, skittle alley) and well-equipped gym in a refurbished barn. Lovely walled vegetable garden; fresh veg available in season, and eggs. Spring water. Professional catering available and meals in the owners' house. Golf and gliding, 2 miles.

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 extremely nice owners live nearby but out of sight and do B&B in their own house.

... The Farmhouse at Burnville Farm - large, ‘listed’ (with at least one leaded window) - is on the edge of the farmyard and has its own enclosed, secluded, good-sized garden (lawn, stream, beech trees, barbecue) 20 yards away.

Inside, small slate-floored hall; beamed living room (TV/DVD) leading to large sunroom with pine furniture; 5 steps up (5'9" lintel) to beamed slate-floored dining room with big open fireplace and ancient dough trough as scrub-topped table/backed benches; fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker); wide quarry-tiled passage for boots etc. and playing; small laundry room (washing machine, tumble drier) leading to downstairs shower-room (suite). Upstairs, four bedrooms – a double (zip-linked 6’ bed or twin), another double (5' bed) plus single divan by arrangement, a single (washbasin) with limited clothes-hanging space, and one with two sets of bunks (one 2’6"); bathroom (suite) and loo (all bedrooms except the single have steps up or down to the bathroom/loo). Heat generated by biomass system. Arrival after 4pm.

Tremendous atmosphere, freedom and number of things for adults and children to do, and the houses are much praised. Sumptuous evening meal menu. Outdoor swimming pool available 28 May to 17 September.

We had the most fantastic holiday at the Farmhouse from start to finish. We stayed with another family and the children firmly placed themselves in the games room at every opportunity!, which gave the adults time to get sorted out. The house was fully kitted out with everything you could wish for ( even hairdryer and straighteners!!). We loved the rural & cosy feel of the property and all enjoyed sitting around the table in the evening playing board games. The swimming pool was of course the favourite place for the children but so nice that it was slightly away from the house so no sneaking out without the adults! Location wise perfect for us, we organised an online shop to arrive the evening of our arrival which was great as no jumping in cars for bits and bobs. Situated midway between north and south coasts so many choices for great days out. I have no hesitation in recommending the Farmhouse... it was, to coin my sons phrase ' the best holiday ever!!'
