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.

Could do with first house tour starting a little later OR the coffee shop opening a little earlier. Gates& coffee shop open 12 noon, first tour 12.30 BUT saying that is most defiantly worth a visit. The tour guides were knowledgeable & the house has a fascinating history. The grounds have a number of wonderful walks.

Enjoyed the house tour and the walk around the grounds. Thought house gardens would be more colourful although the lavender garden was delightful.

The guides were informative & entertaining when we had the house tour, saw quite a few rooms and the "Honourable" owner stopped and spoke with us. The grounds are good for a wander and a picnic or there is a café in the orangery. All together we had a great visit.
