Description

The Brooking Room is ideal for a luxurious weekend break or romantic getaway. It is named after the Brooking family who owned this house for 200 years. This large room has views across the garden towards Moreton’s Hill.

You will sleep in a magnificent hand made oak king sized four poster bed, topped with a duck down duvet and crisp white bedding. There is a TV (with radio) supplied, as well as a hairdryer and a small silent fridge stocked with all that you need to make your own tea and coffee. There is free wireless internet available in this room as well as in the drawing room.

Mark and Liz Lamport would like to welcome you to Bulleigh Barton Manor, a unique place to unwind in comfort, away from the hurly burly of modern life. Nestling in a sheltered valley, with views across the garden to the hills beyond, this historic house, dating back to Tudor times, is the perfect place to relax amidst the South Devon countryside.

Elegant bedrooms, wallpaper with wild boars

Mark and Liz Lamport would like to welcome you to Bulleigh Barton Manor, a unique place to unwind in comfort, away from the hurly burly of modern life. Nestling in a sheltered valley, with views across the garden to the hills beyond, this historic house, dating back to Tudor times, is the perfect place to relax amidst the South Devon countryside.

Elegant bedrooms, wallpaper with wild boars trotting between trees, squishy sofas by a big wood-burner... Great hosts and good food too!

Tea and scones will be waiting. Find long, leafy views to wake up to, a pool for lazy summer days, ponds and a big colourful garden with a summerhouse. Liz and Mark have restored their house with care, uncovering beams and lovely bits of old wood and filling it with original art and books. Bedrooms are inviting: sink-into beds, china pieces on white window sills, a pot of garden flowers, local fudge and homemade cake. They are keen on sourcing the best local produce and their host of hens lay your breakfast eggs. Dartmoor and the south coast are at your feet; return to a friendly hello from Zennor the dog and dinner by the fire.

Just a short drive from the coast, the moor and the vibrant town of Totnes, Bulleigh Barton Manor is well placed for visiting the attractions of South Devon.

Tuck into a home made Devon cream tea when you arrive, in the garden on sunny days or in front of the open fire in the elegant drawing room. Either way, the views are magnificent.

You are welcome to explore the four acre garden and grounds. While you are staying this historic house is your home.

Our aim is to share the experience of staying at Bulleigh Barton Manor with as many people as possible. If you would like to see our detailed access statement, to help you to decide whether we can meet your needs

Local points of interest from

Liz & Mark Lamport:

We're five miles from Totnes, a unique town with scores of delightful medieval buildings and the home of the transition town movement. Best of all it's on the River Dart. A paddle steamer trip down to Dartmouth is a great way to see the area.

Explore Dartmoor, one of the first national parks to be created and the largest open space in southern Britain. It bears the imprint of human habitation dating back 6000 years. Now wildlife has reclaimed the moor, ponies graze where once there were mines.

Visit Britain's seafood coast, said to produce the best fish in the UK. The capital is Brixham where you can dine in a seafood restaurant overlooking the harbour and watch as they land the local specialities, Dover sole, turbot and shellfish.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle came to Ipplepen to research the legend of the supernatural hound that stalked Dartmoor, on which his book The Hound of the Baskervilles is based. Few people now claim to see the hound but the house where he stayed still stands.

Follow the Agatha Christie literary trail through South Devon. See her holiday home, Greenway, and the places that inspired her work. From the boathouse at Greenway to the secluded Elberry Cove, her murderers lurk in every corner of this landscape.

Coleton Fishacre, the country home of the D'Oyly Cartes, was built in the 1920s. The love and passion poured into the creation of this house and garden is evident. Upstairs and downstairs are lovingly preserved, visiting pianists can play their Bluthner!
