F59 - The Manor House
About the home
In Molland, a big detached Victorian manor house facing out over its extensive gardens and surrounding farmland. It was built with stables and barns for a life of hunting, fishing and shooting, with plenty of servants; all surround a courtyard. Now the house is a comfortable home with a landing that rambles in various directions and the stables have been converted into sleeping quarters. The garden is on several levels with a tiny brook (unfenced) running through, a patio (table/chairs), steps and wheelchair ramp to the house from the courtyard, and a kennel.
Inside, roomy and comfy with some lovely pieces of furniture and a few clues to its hunting history. Door into large conservatory with cane chairs and garden views; hall with original caustic floor tiles; big, elegant living room with views to garden, TV/DVD and open fire; dining room with table seating 16 comfortably, 18 with less elbow-room. Big kitchen (microwave, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, oil-fired Aga plus gas range) with refectory table/chairs, TV and walk-in pantry; scullery (washing machine, tumble drier, dishwasher, large larder fridge, Sheila Maid); loo (washbasin).
From hall, stairs (stairlift) up to six bedrooms, most with lovely views:
Double (6' bed) with TV/DVD and en suite bathroom (suite with separate shower, grab rails)
Double (6' bed or twin) with en suite bathroom (suite with separate shower)

The West Country / Devon region
Exmoor: exquisite National Park beside the sea: beech trees, sheep, wheeling buzzards and heather hills, from many of which you look over the sea to Wales and its mountains. Below are the most gracefully carved of steep oak-filled valleys where rushing, bouldered little rivers are paddleable and the red deer spend the winters, and perhaps the most dream-like rose-covered cottage villages of them all, where the pace of life is leisurely. At night, marvellously unpolluted skies for stargazing (recently designated an International Dark Sky Reserve).
Porlock Vale is one of the most beautiful farmed bits of England, Dunkery must be ascended, the area of The Chains is wild and wonderful for walking or riding; the Oare valley (Lorna Doone country) is an excellent place to take Granny for a visit to tiny, fascinating Oare church, a cream tea in Malmsmead and a sunset drive afterwards through the Valley of the Rocks to Woody Bay (if you drive well). Minehead, the main town, is good for sandcastles, has a Butlins (and a good golf course and a harbour) and isn't too big. Medieval Dunster is very pretty and has a fine castle (inhabited, National Trust); Dulverton, on the southern edge of the moor and popular with artists, has interesting shops and galleries; Culbone church, one of England's smallest, is worth walking to. Lots of good food pubs in 'hidden' villages, like Luxborough, where the welcome is warm and the atmosphere relaxed.
The Barnstaple / South Molton area
Molland: hamlet (church, pub, seasonal tea room) on the southern edge of Exmoor in timeless, hedgerow/wooded lanes. Lovely walks and leisurely drive up on to the open moor. Huge, sea/sand/surf beaches and superb golf at Saunton and Woolacombe, 20 miles. Nearest shops, South Molton, 8 miles.
