Lower Elsford Farm has an abundance of wildlife and jaw dropping views across Dartmoor National Park and the famous Lustleigh Cleave. The farm is complete with an indoor heated swimming pool, games room and children’s play area. There are four cottages within the complex, each has its own character and have been decorated and furnished to a good standard, with fluffy towels, toiletries and a welcome Dartmoor cream tea provided on arrival. These properties are in an ideal location for a holiday for family or friends, and can be booked together to accommodate larger parties. Each property has its own enclosed private seating area with a barbecue. Located in an excellent position, allowing you to explore not only the 32 acre grounds, but all parts of Devon, and in particular, the 368 square miles of Dartmoor National Park, renowned for its quaint villages, meandering streams, dramatic scenery, wild ponies and varied wildlife. The grounds include an ancient stone row, 5 acres of rough moorland, two ponds and a tumbling stream.
Lower Elsford is bordered to the west by Woodland Trust and Dartmoor National Park Woods. Indigenous oak trees are covered with lichen, demonstrating the purity of the air; whilst water is provided by the farm’s own natural Dartmoor spring. Views from the fields are magnificent, stretching over the moor to Hound Tor and Haytor Rocks, and on a clear day as far as the coast at Berry Head, with glimpses of the sea. Wildlife abounds, including a badger set, deer, foxes, buzzards, and in season the bluebells and snowdrops flourish. Time does not seem to move quite so fast down here. Peace and tranquillity is the speciality, whilst Lower Elsford Farm is still within easy travelling distance of many local attractions. Guests are free to help themselves to any eggs they find, courtesy of the farm’s resident chickens. There are two reservoirs within a mile of Lower Elsford Farm both offering either pike or trout fishing. Permits for Trenchford Reservoir are available from the self service kiosk at Kennick whilst at Kennick Reservoir, the stunning Dartmoor water is stocked weekly with rainbow trout and blue trout. There are also boats for hire, but booking is essential. Permits can be purchased from the permit hut. Dartmoor served as the inspiration for Conan Doyle’s classic novels Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of the Baskervilles, and as the backdrop for the film, War Horse. Dartmoor has the largest number of archaeological remains in Europe. So if it is stone circles, menhirs, stone crosses and ancient villages that get you excited, look no further. Located within Dartmoor National Park, the farm is listed in the Domesday Book. There has been a settlement here for at least 600 years. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

    Had a fantastic stay in Garden Cottage. The owners live on site and we're very friendly and helpful. Had some lovely eggs from the chickens and my 10 month old enjoyed swimming and the swings. He also adored Lola the spaniel! Hope to return in a warmer month so we can explore the farm some more! Would not hesitate to recommend Lower Elsford Farm to anyone, you will not be disappointed by the cottages or facilities - they are simply fantastic!

    We had a great week in the Garden Cottage. There was so much to see and do on the farm - swimming pool, walks, hammock, tree swing, fantastic play area for children - as well as collecting eggs from the chickens and exploring the sheep fields. The weather wasn't great for part of the week so we make really good use of the swimming pool!

    We had a fabulous holiday staying in Garden Cottage. We made full use of the superb amenities including the indoor pool, the games room and the outside table tennis table. It was a novelty being able to collect fresh eggs from the chickens each morning. Paul and Jan were very friendly and helpful, and the surroundings were beautiful and peaceful.
