Well worth a visit....very interesting 18th century 16 sided home built for two rather eccentric spinster cousins....some. Beautiful furniture and unusual decor with the knowledgeable docents giving interesting commentary. If it's a sunny day enjoy a lovely cream tea out in the garden overlooking the quiltlike green fields and hedgerows.

In an exceptional position above the Exe river. The sisters built themselves a cosy unique home to house their collection and themselves. I lovely gentle visit.

As it was winter opening the entry to the house was by guided tour and was interesting , would have been better but we got tagged... More

A very unusual and worthy house to visit, which we did during a period when guided tours were available, which last around an hour. Kudos to John, our guide, who made the house come to life, and was faultlessly knowledgeable across the range from the family tree of its owners and inhabitants, to the details and pieces in each room,...

This is a lovely house and quite different to anything we have seen with its diamond shaped windows. It is in a lovely setting with views across the estuary. The house is 16 sided which makes for interesting shaped rooms inside. It was built by two eccentric spinster cousins in the 18th Century and is now owned by The National... More

Oh this place is great! You just have to visit. Open to all about April time around Easter. They put a lot of things on for the children. A National trust property it was owned in the 1700's by the Parminter Sisters who never married and made a lot of the house themselves with shells collected locally. The sun moves... More

Just the most delightful NT house I've visited . The views from the many windows is fantastic. . So clever to think of having a house that wherever you sit you can be in the sun . The shell room is amazing and all the collections the sisters occupied themselves with are lovely . A small house in comparison to... More
