Lowertown Farm Bed & Breakfast is set in a peaceful rural hamlet within the Dart valley, three miles away from the picturesque village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor. They are surrounded by ninety three acres of farmland with open moorland above and below the farm.
Luke and Hannah, the second generation to live at the 500yr old farmhouse, welcome you with a warm log fire (perfect for those cold winter nights), comfy sofas and full English Breakfasts.
They can cater for groups, families, couples or singles but they try to limit themselves to a maximum of six guests at any time, ensuring that you have an enjoyable, peaceful stay.
All the bedrooms are furnished with high quality mattresses, John Lewis bed linen and fluffy bath and hand towels. All bedrooms feature photography from local photographer Richard Fox
A large tea and coffee station on the spacious landing will cater for your needs with a quick-cup providing hot water at the touch of a button.
Now offering free Wi-Fi throughout the farmhouse with a fairly good connection despite the thick Dartmoor granite walls. .
All guest bedrooms are upstairs and share a large bathroom (bath with shower above) – please bear this in mind. There are a number of steps around the farmhouse due to the house being over 500 years old. Therefore theB&B is unfortunately unsuitable for those who are unable to climb stairs.
As the three guest rooms share a bathroom not only does it save water, but it also means that they can keep a close eye on it – keeping it clean, hygienic and topped up with good quality eco-friendly tolietries, all made in the UK.
