Lovely trip here, albeit, the place is very small. The house is interesting, and the grounds fairly compact. The coffee shop is expensive, and service was slow. Good selection of cakes although Gluten Free products had sold out.

Owned by the national trust, this 16 sided house has some good looking architecture and from the outside is a great looking large house. Well signed on the main road from Exeter to Exmouth road. Cafe onsite

A National Trust property each room has a volunteer in to give you as much information as you could want, there is also written information available. It's smaller than you imagine and the shell gallery is currently being refurbished so you can't see it. Interesting...More
