Barlemoor House Hero 3

Barlemoor House The South West

Designed with traditional charm; built for modern life

Barlemoor House is full of happy contradictions. A large manor, cosy as a cottage. A traditional country house, newly built with all mod cons. A moorland hideaway, close to the bustling North Devon coast.

Step behind the formal façade and find your every comfort catered for, with underfloor heating, a Sonos sound system and high-speed broadband. Quality and style flow through to the kitchen, where cooking is a pleasure with the Everhot range and, afterwards, you can let the Miele dishwasher take the strain.

Timeless elegance suffuses the reception rooms. Sit before an open fire, tapestry rugs at your feet, antique dressers behind you and beautiful artworks on the walls. Gather in the drawing room, library or dining room, or chat over the kitchen island with a glass or two of complimentary English wine, produced on the manor’s sister estate in Herefordshire.

Outside, play tennis or croquet on the lawns, where there’s a marquee pitch too and a ha-ha; perfect for drinks parties. Explore the 6,000 acre moorland estate, where red deer roam, and sea eagles, otters and Exmoor ponies make their home. Go fishing, wild swimming and walking and when you return, relax and soak up the spectacular views, over a barbecue.

The nine bedrooms are restful and appealing, with an abundance of four-posters, as well as luxury ensuites and moorland views.

If you have your own helicopter or small, light aircraft, you’ll be delighted to know there’s a helipad and landing strip too.

What we think

The fantastic location of this latest addition to the Big House Experience collection is one of its biggest draws. Set within a 6,000 acre farming estate on Exmoor, there’s private moorland to explore, spectacular views to admire, sensational wildlife to spot plus, the house is only a short drive from the North Devon coast.
