Eggesford Barton, Chulmleigh, Devon

Sleeps 10 - 30 13 Bedrooms 30 Dining

Large country holiday house sleeping up to 30 with a games room, ideal for large gatherings and celebrations in the heart of Devon

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Eggesford Barton, Chulmleigh, Devon, sleeps 10 - 30 in 13 bedrooms.

Once the main farm for the Earls of Portsmouth’s Eggesford estate, Eggesford Barton has been converted and renovated to Grade 4 standard within the constraints of a Grade 2 listing. The house is over 300 years old surrounding a large garden courtyard and is full of charm and character with pretty Georgian arched windows, exposed oak beams, original fireplaces and quirky sloping floors.

The rooms are tastefully furnished in a manner sympathetic to the style of the property and the house readily accommodates up to 30 guests.

Many of our guests stay with their extended families or friends for a long weekend or a week to celebrate a special occasion or escape for a short break. There is space for all to dine together in the main dining room, and we can recommend outside caterers should you wish.

Our large marquee area is perfect for guests who wish to celebrate a big occasion and provides a large outdoor area for ball games.

For our guests with children, there is an indoor games room with table tennis and a pool table.

We welcome dogs, and the nearby walks in the surrounding area and Eggesford Forest are quite beautiful. For keen fishermen the River Taw is nearby and guests are welcome to try their luck free of charge.

North Devon beaches, Dartmoor and Exmoor are within 45 minute drive. A picturesque journey on the Tarka train from Eggesford station takes 40 minutes to the cathedral city of Exeter.
