Honiton, Devon, England
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). On the other side of the huge lawn (croquet) is a shallow rill (unfenced). Huge games room (pool table, air hockey, table tennis, table football) in the garden. In front of the...

Old and slightly bonkers "historical and hysterical " Tudor manor. Very laid back, slightly scruffy but very homely. A bit short of fridge space if you bring a lot of supplies and cooking with an AGA is a challenge yet to be mastered. Bathroom facilities a bit basic, broadband very slow and intermittent but we had a very good time...
