Coleton Fishacre
Brownstone Road, Kings
wear, Devon, TQ6 0EQ

Travel back to the Jazz Age at the country home of the D’Oyly Carte family. You can lose yourself in the RHS-accredited garden, where viewpoints give enticing glimpses out to sea, paths weave through glades past tranquil ponds, and tender plants from the Mediterranean, South Africa, and New Zealand thrive in the moist and sheltered valley.

Greenway House

Greenway Road, Galmpton Devon, TQ5 0ES

Take this extraordinary glimpse into the beloved holiday home of the famous and much-loved author Agatha Christie and her family.

This relaxed and atmospheric house is set in the 1950s, when Agatha and her family would spend summers and Christmases with friends, relaxing by the river, playing croquet and clock golf, and reading her latest mystery to their guests.
The family were great collectors, and the house was filled with archaeology, Tunbridge ware, silver, botanical china, and books.

Compton Castle

Marldon, Paignton, Devon, TQ3 1TA

 

A rare survivor, this medieval fortress with high curtain walls, towers and a portcullis, set in a landscape of rolling hills and orchards, is a bewitching mixture of romance and history.

Home for nearly 600 years to the Gilbert family, including Sir Humphrey Gilbert – a half-brother to Sir Walter Raleigh.

Plus, there is a ghost, according to locals who have seen the lady in white.

Drewsteignton, Dartmoor, Devon, EX6 6PB

We’re staying open during the conservation work, allowing you to go behind the scenes. Three artists have redisplayed the castle inside. You will see elements of the collection brought together in creative ways and darkened spaces brought to life, revealing new aspects of Drogo’s remarkable story.

 

Discover the beautiful Lutyens-designed terraced garden with dramatic views of Dartmoor. There’s plenty to see, from the rose garden to the quaint Bunty House (Wendy House), complete with its miniature garden.

Bradley Manor House

Totnes Road, Newton Abbot, Devon, TQ12 1LX

An unspoiled and fascinating medieval manor house, it is still a relaxed family home. Wander through rooms untouched by time, warm yourself by the open fire, and unwind in the tranquil garden.

Located in a green haven of riverside meadows and woodland hidden away in the heart of the town.

The Church House

Widecombe-in-the-Moor, Dartmoor, Devon, TQ13 7TA

Dartmoor is home to fast-flowing rivers, quiet, shady meadows, rugged granite tors, panoramic views down to the coast, and small, picturesque villages nestled in the valleys. One of these is Widecombe-in-the-Moor, where you will find one of the finest examples of a 16th-century church house, originally used for parish festivities or ‘ales’.

Today, the Church House is still in use by the local community, with various groups and clubs using it, as well as the monthly village market, but can be visited by National Trust members when not in use.

Killerton

Broadclyst, Exeter, Devon, EX5 3LE

Would you give away your family home for your political beliefs? Sir Richard Acland did just that with his Killerton Estate in the heart of Devon when he gave it to the Trust in 1944.

 

Today, you’ll find a friendly Georgian house set in 2,600 hectares (6,400 acres) of working farmland, woods, parkland, cottages, and orchards.

Buckland Abbey

Yelverton, Devon, PL20 6EY

The Abbey is part museum and house filled with treasures such as the legendary Drake’s Drum.

There’s no mistaking the magnificence of the Great Barn, which has remained virtually unchanged since it was built all those centuries ago.

Saltram House

Plympton, Plymouth, Devon, PL7 1UH

Saltram overlooks the River Plym and is set in a rolling landscape park on the outskirts of Plymouth, which provides precious green space.
