Holiday Rental House /
11 Bedrooms, 10 Bathrooms, Sleeps 24
A mile from Yarcombe, Sheafhayne is a superbly positioned, Grade II*, Elizabethan manor house, likened by the Sunday Times to �a full-sized game of Cluedo�. Originally a medieval hall house and the shooting lodge of Sir Francis Drake's Yarcombe estate which has been in the same family for 400 years and has 2,500 acres of farmland (beef and dairy cattle) through which flows the river Yarty (trout fishing available). You are welcome to visit the farm. 
Large and beautiful garden with lawn fading via a ha-ha into countryside. A wild garden/orchard with mown paths is at the end of a pergola walk with wisteria and a perfectly placed seat; nearby, a stream (unfenced).

I will try not to gush too much, but if you enjoy historical buildings and manicured gardens, coupled with space, exploration, countryside and friends - then you HAVE to go here. Went as a group of 18 adults and 5 children varying from ages 30 - 78 (Kids 3 - 14) for a 40th Birthday celebration... more

Sheafhayne was way more than we could have hoped for. 10 adults 9 kids 5 families. All the adults and kids had a great bedroom and bathroom,... more
