Arts & Crafts-style house with elegant Art Deco-influenced interior, set amid gardens in a spectacular coastal setting
Built in a stream-fed valley on a beautiful stretch of the NT-protected South Devon coastline, the house was designed in 1925 for Rupert and Lady Dorothy D'Oyly Carte, who created its luxuriant garden. This has year-round interest with a wide variety of rare and exotic plants, water features and a gazebo with fine views
