From Our Editors

With the rugged folds of Dartmoor in the distance, the imposing Ugbrooke House sits in a serene Devonshire valley, looking out over Higher Water lake. The historical property is framed by carefully landscaped gardens and parkland, with palm trees shading the orangery. The house’s rich heritage stretches over 900 years into history and it appears in the Domesday book of 1086. Today, it serves as the private residence of the Clifford family, having been passed from generation to generation for centuries. Architects Robert Adam and Capability Brown left their mark on the property in the mid 18th century, when they were commissioned to remodel the house and grounds. Inside, an extensive collection of fine paintings and portraits adorn the walls, displayed along with unique needlework, artefacts, period furnishings and a rare military uniform collection.

This is a beautifully restored family home with lovely gardens. Well worth a visit. Even got to meet the heir, Alexander Clifford, what a lovely down to earth friendly chap

Interesting and enjoyable visit to Ugbrooke House. The only downside was that I booked the tour for 12.30 and was not told that it would be 1pm, resulting in a wait of almost an hour as we turned up early. Nonetheless, it was very interesting and highly recommended.

Great history was brought alive by our guides. I felt guilty walking on the beautiful carpets, could over shoe covers be offered?

Excellent guides, interesting house, lovely walk around the gardens followed by tea and cake in the orangery. What more would you want.

Bought this gift for my parents and they thoroughly enjoyed their visit. They said the guides were fascinating and very knowledgable. The house was also very interesting both from a historical point of view and contemporary eg their daughter's wedding dress was hanging on display. Ugbrooke House is well worth a visit!
