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.

    A fantastic holiday in a very secluded, beautifully decorated, modern cottage converted from an old horse stable on a working farm. Everything is new and super clean while the host Paul is extremely friendly and welcoming and went out of his way to help. The walks in the farm’s 32 acres are stunning, with buzzard and bracken and the mysterious Elsford Rocks. The site is superbly equipped with pool, playground and games room and is very child friendly - get your timing right and you can collect a half dozen fresh eggs daily direct from the hen house. We had a week of rain but the farm is so lovely it didn’t matter - it is completely off the beaten track (expect to reverse along the narrow, winding surrounding lanes to let cars through at least once!) and gloriously peaceful. Clearly no expense has been spared - there are lovely touches everywhere and the cream tea waiting for us on arrival was delightful. Great value for money - I’ve been visiting Devon for nearly twenty years and this is the only place I wouldn’t hesitate to return to. Cannot recommend enough.

    What a fabulous place with fantastic and generous hosts! Everything was top quality and Paul was really keen to ensure that you got as much pleasure from the farm as he does. Paths are mown through the fields so that you have an easy walking route marked out and there was plenty to do - even for children- with the swimming pool, play area, games room, walks etc. There were Co-op and M&S convenience stores at the garages between the cottage and the A38, handy for essentials on your way home and Bovey Tracy is close. The single track road put us off a bit the first time but we soon got used to it. I would highly recommend it, with hosts who can’t do enough to ensure you have a happy stay to the beautiful surroundings and perfect cottage! Try it - you won’t be disappointed!
