A fabulous Grade II listed Elizabethan manor house in the loveliest east Devon countryside, a welcoming, remarkable place for special occasions and family gatherings.
Stuffed to the beams with charm and character, this Grade II listed Elizabethan manor house is an exceptional and truly unique holiday home. Experience the freedom of living within 2,500 acres of farmland and waking up each day to the commanding views of the shire. Run through the garden and into the orchard, follow the stream, and capture elegant photos on the fancy croquet lawn. Situated a mile from the peaceful, unspoilt village of Yarcombe in the Blackdown Hills yet brilliantly positioned for visiting Devon, Somerset and Dorset.
Tudor panelling, mullioned windows and old oak floors are just some of the fabulous features at this medieval house; part of the Yarcombe Estate inherited from Sir Francis Drake. Throw a banquet in the splendid dining room, seats 24, cook in the impressive kitchen equipped with an electric 4-oven Everhot range plus an electric double oven and ceramic hob, microwave, two dishwashers, two fridges, large freezer old-fashioned larder/wine store, butler’s pantry, and breakfast table with window seats for those family breakfasts. Four staircases up to ten bedrooms and some rooms have interconnecting doors, all can be bolted. Outside is a lawn, wild garden/orchard, terrace with BBQ, croquet lawn, games room and wisteria-covered pergola walk.
Set amongst the Blackdown Hills, the spectacular scenery is the final touch to an already superb property. A pub less than a mile away provides the perfect space for all your guests to head for an ambient evening dining and drinking out. It’s just under 2 miles to the A303 allowing easy access for anyone wishing to venture further into Devon, 12 miles away you’ll uncover the ruins of old Hemyock Castle and 14 miles from the property is the National Trust-owned attraction of Barrington Court.
