Further details outdoors

The house sits comfortably in 5 acres of gardens and pastures with uninterrupted views across a valley of woods and river towards distant Dartmoor. Immediately around the house are formal gardens that were laid out in Victorian times, with enclosed garden areas within the whole. To the west is a private sunken salt water swimming pool set amongst tropical plants, while on a lower terrace is a tennis court of green artificial grass surrounded by a hundred Rhododendron bushes. The south facing terraces are built from fossilized limestone from Malta, but underneath is a very English Victorian garden grotto. A lawn for croquet, an orchard for apples, a vegetable garden for fresh produce all add up to the quintessential English country garden.

Facilities include an outdoor heated salt water pool, jet-stream hot tub, infra red sauna, yoga and dance room, TVs and DVDs in most of the rooms, grass tennis court, snooker room, croquet lawn and extensive gardens. Wi-fi is available throughout.

Further details


The Devon region

The house is located at the edge the village of Chulmleigh in Devon.

Chulmleigh is a remote, Saxon, hilltop town located in the heart of Devon that has a real, old fashioned community spirit. It is a town of thatched cottages, welcoming inns and one of the finest churches in the country. The area is relatively undiscovered by tourism and retains the charm of yesteryear.

It’s good to visit all year round. Chulmleigh Fair, held annually since 1253, is perfect for children enjoying the first week of the summer holiday. In winter take in the breathtaking scenery on a brisk walk – then have a well deserved drink in one of the town’s three inns.


Local activities include: Yoga, personal fitness sessions, massage, one on one art lessons, local fishing, clay shooting, biking, hiking and horse riding.

The Chulmleigh area provides many leisure activities including golf, horse riding, watching cricket on a pitch with fabulous views, fishing, mountain biking and hill walking. The 180 mile Tarka Trail starts in nearby Eggesford Forest which is on the banks of the River Taw. There are also number of historic houses, gardens and theme parks in the vicinity.
