An exceptional opportunity to stay in one of Devon's most important old manor houses, as Shute Barton has been converted to a luxurious holiday home. For a truly special holiday for a large family or group of friends, it would be hard to imagine anywhere more memorable to stay than this.
The accommodation includes the medieval great hall on the top floor with its original collar-beam roof, and other remarkable historic features such as a newel stair, a beautiful 15ft-high late-medieval window and a bedroom with late-seventeenth-century painted panelling. Outside, the garden includes lawns ideal for croquet or tennis, an old orchard, and distant views towards the sea at Seaton.
Heating: LPG gas central heating included (please note there is no heating in the Great Kitchen and Medieval Hall).
Parking: You may unload and load outside the house and there is ample parking space for cars in the marked area approximately 40 metres from the house.
Garden: To the front of the property there is an enclosed private gravel courtyard and to the rear, a gravelled terrace leading to a level lawn area with borders. There are also further gardens which visitors can explore.
