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. We 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.

Whether it’s kayaking, climbing the granite tors, riding a horse across the moors or simply exploring the beauty of Dartmoor, Hannah and Luke, with their keen interest in the outdoors, are able to provide you with an enjoyable stay. Luke is an experienced kayaker and climber and can give you advice on local rivers and crags. Dartmoor is not just about the landscape, although there is plenty of it with 365 acres of National Park to explore; It's also about the Dartmoor ponies, cows, sheep, tors, history and the farming that all sustain this environment for future generations. It's about getting out there, experiencing new things and living life to the full. This living, breathing, working landscape holds the secret to a past that stretches back over the centuries.

From rare birds and butterflies, deer, foxes, badgers, adders and insects, wild wilderness, open moorland, rushing rivers (very interesting for the kayakers) and stone circles that shape the landscape of Dartmoor National Park.

At Lowertown Farm we have three bedrooms, all at reasonable prices. Our visitor book is full of positive comments from previous guests, many of whom come back time and time again.

For your evening meals there are a number of good quality and award-winning pubs in the area, one of which is just a short walk though the fields. We can also provide you with a packed lunch with two days prior notice.

Lowertown Farm Retirement Livery

Opened in 2009, nestled in the beautiful Dart Valley, tucked away from main roads Lowertown Farm is the ideal location to retire your horse. At Lowertown Farm we aim to provide affordable tailor-made packages to suit your horse during their retirement.

We believe it's important to provide a loving, caring home for horses no matter what age or reason for their retirement. They are kept within a mixed herd environment with other horses that match their individual personalities and their seasonal grazing requirements. Providing that individual, specialist care for your horse is vital whilst allowing them time to be 'just horses' during their retirement.

"When the time came to retire my horse I looked at many yards. Lowertown Farm appealed to me immediately due to it’s small size (10 horses/ponies) and the approach of both Hannah and Luke to the care they provide. Care is positive and kind, and individualised, and Hannah takes a lot of time to get to know your horse – his likes and dislikes, position in a herd, personality and any issues they may have. The yard is extremely peaceful, visiting is a pleasure and my horse settled in almost immediately. He always has a big smile on his face when I see him and, having had a previous career in dressage he’s loving spending time just being a horse. Grazing and group dynamics are always appropriate, and changed as and when necessary, and communication is timely and professional. I would recommend to anyone."
