Eggesford Barton House is a unique, Grade II listed property which is over 300 years old and was once the main farm for The Earls of Portsmouth’s Eggesford Estate.
Full of charm and character, the house surrounds a large garden courtyard and boasts pretty Georgian arched windows, exposed beams, original fireplaces and character sloping floors. Beautifully converted and restored, the rooms are attractively furnished in a style which is sympathetic to the property. With 13 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, the house readily accommodates 28 guests.
Eggesford Barton House is divided into two self contained wings which are available to rent together or 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.
