Perfect Easter Weekend at Lewtrenchard Manor - A Jacobean Delight.

March 29, 2013

Magnificent Lewtrenchard Manor, set  in a valley below the wild Tors of  Dartmoor National Park.
Mentioned in the Domesday Book, now returned to Family ownership, this Jacobean Manor has
sat in its beautiful grounds since the 1600's.










If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic country seat, there’s no shortage of other diversions on the doorstep. The craggy tors and wide open expanse of Dartmoor National Park is almost within walking distance, and the stunning coastlines of both North and South Devon are barely 30 minutes away by car. Shopping in Exeter is only 45 minutes by car, Plymouth only 45 minutes also. Torquay and the ‘English Riviera’ is about an hour’s drive away.
