Large country house rental in Devon. 19th Century country house, situated in the unspoilt Devon countryside, nestled between Exmoor and Dartmoor.

Chulmleigh Manor is the perfect place for house parties, celebrations, family get togethers, or for those looking for a relaxing retreat.
The house is in two parts. The main part has a ground floor with two very large reception and dining areas and a lounging TV (cinema style) room to relax in. There is also a large farmhouse style kitchen with ancilliary rooms and the dining room that seats 24. All have large windows, mostly double aspect, allowing in the south facing sun and light.
The two floors above contain 9 double bedrooms and 8 en suite bathrooms.

The adjoining room is a huge but restful snooker room (full size table), library and flat screen TV.
The house sits comfortably in 5 acres of gardens and pastures with uninterrupted views across a valley of woods and river towards distant Dartmoor. Immediately around the house are formal gardens that were laid out in Victorian times, with enclosed garden areas within the whole. To the west is a private sunken salt water swimming pool set amongst tropical plants, while on a lower terrace is a tennis court of green artificial grass surrounded by a hundred Rhododendron bushes. The south facing terraces are built from fossilised limestone from Malta, but underneath is a very English Victorian garden grotto. A lawn for croquet, an orchard for apples, a vegetable garden for fresh produce all add up to the quintessential English country garden.
Facilities include an outdoor heated salt water pool, jet-stream hot tub, infra red sauna, yoga and dance room, TVs and DVDs in most of the rooms, grass tennis court, snooker room, croquet lawn and extensive gardens. Wi-fi is available throughout.
