Located between the market towns of Tiverton and Cullompton in the southwest county of Devon, Hillersdon House sits in the centre of it’s own 200 acres of parkland, pasture, lakes and woodland, looking out across a beautiful private valley towards the Blackdown Hills.
Within the House, the tiled entrance hall leads on to the magnificent Great Hall and staircase, opening on to an enfilade of formal rooms. Displayed in these areas, and on the first floor landing, is a significant collection of West Country art, including some of the most renewed cotemporary Cornish artists.
The ground floor offers a stately dining room, seating up to 24 guests for formal meals, as well as an elegant drawing room, library, study and games room.
The house offers eight luxurious bedrooms, each with a sumptuous en-suite bathroom, occupying the first floor, with a further two bedrooms contained in the romantic Jane’s cottages in the beautiful walled garden.
Sympathetic to the beautiful, rolling Devon countryside and abundant natural water, the gardens are an inspiring collection of natural, formal and cotemporary designs. At the Garden Lake you’ll find a collection of Rhododendrons representing the first key introduction of Rhododendrons to England in the mid 18th Century.
Within the 18th Century walled garden there are a beautiful collection of growing vegetables, fruit and flowers, providing a supply of all the fruit and vegetables consumed within the house, as well as all the beautiful cut flowers in the house.
Three historical lakes have been restored and an entirely new Park Lake created, providing a haven for wildlife. A new wildflower meadow has been sown to encourage insect and bird life. And, more wildlife can be found in 50-acre Deer Park, home to the Hillersdon herd of Red deer the first here for over a century. There are many delightful Woodland Walks and stunning views in all directions.
