Once the main farm for The Earls of Portsmouth’s Eggesford estate, we offer exclusive use of Eggesford Barton House, a unique, Grade 2 listed property over 300 years old.
The house surrounds a large garden courtyard and is full of charm and character with pretty Georgian arched windows, exposed oak beams, original fireplaces and quirky sloping floors. Carefully converted and renovated, the rooms are tastefully furnished in a manner sympathetic to the style of the property. With 13 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, the house readily accommodates 28 guests.
The two wings of Eggesford Barton House are self contained and available to rent separately: The Cider Press (sleeps 16) forms the North West part of Eggesford Barton House and incorporates the original Georgian farmhouse. The large lounge to the front offers spectacular views over the Taw Valley, Eggesford Forest and open farmland to the front. The snug lounge and large kitchen/breakfast room offer a contrasting view over the garden courtyard. Unique in character, The Cider Press presents a host of original features such as arched windows, oak beams, bread ovens, original fireplaces and quirky sloping floors. It has been elegantly furnished with the pretty Georgian rooms decorated in period style including iron framed beds and Chesterfield sofas in the snug lounge. The dining room, which was originally the main kitchen to Eggesford Barton House, features the original two fireplaces with bread ovens and a massive Georgian style dining table.
The Gallery (sleeps 12) forms the South side of Eggesford Barton House overlooking the garden courtyard. Originally four farm workers cottages, the accommodation has been sympathetically renovated to provide spacious and comfortable accommodation. Many of the original features have been retained including the four original fireplaces, doors to the garden courtyard, exposed beams and bread ovens. The rooms are tastefully furnished with period furniture, comfortable modern leather sofas in the lounge and stylish iron framed beds in all of the bedrooms.
