The Farmhouse, part of Burnville Farm, offers classic charm and ample space for your family holiday in Lydford. Set against a traditional Devon farmyard backdrop, this large Dartmoor holiday home with a pool is a delightful rural retreat.

Inside, the Farmhouse exudes rustic elegance, with a welcoming sitting room featuring traditional beams. Enjoy sunny days in the bright sunroom or gather around the sociable dining table beside the open fire in the dining room, complete with an ancient dough trough.

Upstairs, four comfortable bedrooms promise peaceful nights after days filled with exploration and farm adventures.
