The property stands alone at the end of a private farm track in a delightful setting on Dartmoor.

Surrounded by its own fields and woodland, the property offers wonderful privacy and direct access to open moorland and to the beautiful wooded valley of the River Dart. The river is a short (five minutes) walk from the farmhouse. Here it is possible to kayak, swim in its famous pools, or just enjoy a riverside picnic. The farmhouse is also ideally located for walking and cycling on the moor. Other local activities include caving, gorge walking, and pony trekking. For keen bird watchers there is abundant bird-life on the farm and surrounding woodlands. The Mount Batten Watersports & Activities Centre offers canoeing, paddle-boarding, windsurfing & dinghy sailing in the stunning coastal setting of Plymouth Sound. The Bantham surf school is 20 miles away. The River Dart Country Park, Pennywell Farm, the Buckfast Butterfly Farm and Otter Sanctuary, the steam railway, cruises on the River Dart from Totnes, and several pretty moorland villages, all lie within easy reach. Four miles away, the historic town of Ashburton has an excellent range of independent shops, galleries and restaurants.

The charming old porch and front door lead into a small lobby and thence into the main hallway. To the left lies the pretty dining room with original deep set windows and curved walls. To the right is the large comfortable sitting room with old inglenook fireplace, wood burner, TV and JVC DAB music/radio This is beautifully furnished to a high standard with antique furniture and paintings - the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the moor. Beyond is a small, cosy second sitting room with TV and DVD, and doors to the courtyard. Next door, the useful laundry room has a washing machine, tumble dryer, shower room and WC and access to the back garden. The light kitchen/breakfast area with AGA, separate electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher is accessed through old pine stable doors at the top of the entrance hall. To the rear is another back door to the garden, together with a large useful pantry with additional fridge and a downstairs cloakroom and WC.

Heading up the relatively steep open-tread stairs and accessed from the large, light hallway are the four attractive and comfortable bedrooms. These comprise a dual-aspect king-size with shower and vanity unit, a pretty twin bedroom and a further king-size with vanity unit, both with lovely views across the gardens and woodland to the moor, and lastly a dual-aspect king-size with en-suite shower and WC. A spacious bathroom under a sloping ceiling with shower attachment over the bath and WC completes the offering on this floor.

Outside, the pretty enclosed garden has a gently sloping lawn, garden furniture, BBQ and unfenced pond fed by a small stream (please take care with pets and children). Off the garden gate is a sheltered and well-fenced little orchard, ideal for picnics with small children, and a further large field for games and walking the dog. On the second storey of the large barn opposite the farmhouse is a fabulous games-room with large table tennis table, darts board and straw bales for seating. Ample parking is available in the courtyard.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lower Hannaford Farm is a beautiful, private house contained within its own 26 acres. The property is in immaculate order, very spacious, very clean & very comfortable. Fantastic walks are reachable on foot all around the property. We had an excellent stay, spending our days trekking across Dartmoor and our evenings warming ourselves in front of thRead moree farm's log burner. Perfect. In summary, the farm is ideal for those who love walking and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside. Hide

We have been to some lovely places, but this was by far the most peaceful. I fell in love with the garden, I have never seen so many bees and other insects and listening to the owls at night while looking at the stars was the icing on the cake. Arthur Pendragon (the bulldog) never been so happy. We plan to return very soon.

We had a wonderful time at the farmhouse despite bad weather. It is a beautiful place. We were three generations getting together some family came as far as Canada. Would love to come back at some point.

Beautiful, warm, comfortable, well equipped house, surrounded by stunning scenery. Idyllic for walkers, cyclists and lovers of the English countryside, at its best. Our party of mixed ages and abilities were all sad to leave - no doubt we will return !
