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.
