We have wondered about thus place, always at the front of the West Country section of the hand book. Delightful property and contents, informative and friendly volunteers to match and leaving a sense of wonder at the imagination of eccentric rich folk in the 1790s. Lots of fascinating pictures and early photos dotted around, it's worth asking the room guides for the information and stories behind images. We were lucky to be there on "Pianist Day", she is lovely.
Suggest if is better and to arrive from the Exmouth end of the approach lane even if travelling from the north or east. The lane is steep and VERY narrow with few passing places but once there it is a pleasure to be in the house or garden. We were too early for lunch but it smelled good.
Try The Bridge at Topsham, a real old ale house with cracking beers and excellent meat and potato pies worth the ten minute drive.
