Wonderful guided tour of the house
Aug 2019
Would recommend booking your tour in advance if possible as we arrived soon after opening but very strict on their maximum number of 30 per tour, only one ticket left so as there were two of us had to wait until the later time. The guides were so informative and enthusiatic about the history of the house - a really enjoyable experience. Only found the toilets in the car park on leaving - think they could be better signed as everyone heading for the very busy toilets at the house after a long car journey.

A beautiful house
Jul 2019 • Couples
Robert Adams redesigned this house raising the ceilings and thus creating a series of attics that were used to store furniture and other artefacts. This proved extremely fortunate during subsequent restorations as original artefacts were found in the attics and brought back to life. The house is exquisitely decorated throughout and the Cardinal’s room, which has just been restored was amazing. The house is just fantastic and the two guides, Helen and Mary, brought the whole experience to life.
We followed the house tour with a walk around the lake which, given that it was a beautifully sunny day was thoroughly enjoyable.
Rounded off our visit with a light lunch in the restaurant which was tasty, well presented and reasonably priced.
Highly recommend this house for a visit if you are in the area.

An enchanting house, and wonderful gardens, with a touching very human family story.
Jul 2019 • Friends
Wonderful house and gardens midway between Exeter, and Newton Abbot. The house dates from mid C15th century, but Robert Adam in the eighteenth century, made some substantial alterations, and gave the house both internally, and externally, its present style. Lancelot "Capability" Brown was responsible for the imaginative and innovative superb gardens.
This is only a small part of a visit to Ugbrooke. We really were captivated by our tour guides who brought to light both the history of the house and the very mixed fortunes of the Cliffords who have lived here for over 500 years.
This was a tour with a difference, not your usual dry details but entertaining and enlightening - our guides also explained how the house was nearly lost , including how some of the former show piece rooms were reduced to being used as a post war grain store .
This is an enchanting house, with a touching very human family story.

Lovely house and grounds

The house and grounds are awe-inspiring. The very friendly Irish guide was very informative, she managed to answer all our questions. We would definitely visit again in the future.

Day out
Jun 2019 • Couples
Well have lived down here for years driven past it alot . So visited it today even in the rain it was lovely so in the sunshine we will return. We had a tour of the house and chapel such a interesting tour over 1 hour long. We managed to force down a cream tea. We had a lovely walk around the lake and gardens. You can just pay to walk around gardens and dogs are welcome. Tour guides and staff do a amazing job of the up keep of the house and gardens.

Home of the Devon Cliffords for 500 years, run by Alexander Clifford for the family now, with Lord Clifford still living on the estate. Hiistoric site of the discovery of the Secret Treaty of Dover!
