Set in a sheltered valley among the rolling hills two miles inland from Slapton Sands, a little further to the popular Blackpool Sands, Buckland House is an elegant Grade II listed Georgian farmhouse built sometime before 1750 and largely rebuilt in the Regency style as a gentleman farmer's residence in 1860. The house has received a complete restoration to a very high standard and now includes a conservatory overlooking the ponds and gardens with a view towards Dartmoor. Offering high quality accommodation for two or more families, tastefully furnished in keeping with the period of property, this lovely family home offers an opportunity to enjoy a holiday in comfortable surroundings. The entrance porch leads to the main hall, off which are the principal reception rooms. The south-facing sitting room has a traditional Georgian feel, with dual aspect windows that overlook the formal gardens. A wood-panelled den leads to the large conservatory overlooking the rear garden and ponds. The large slate flag floored traditional farmhouse kitchen has a door to the patio and garden. A ground floor studio apartment with small self contained kitchen area and en-suite shower-room with views over the duck pond and orchard with a door to the patio; also access from the conservatory. Large shallow staircase leading to a landing with an original Victorian curved stained glass window with views over the countryside. Upstairs there are 6 bedrooms, 2 with en-suites and a family bathroom.
The House can be let together with neighbouring cottages for celebrations and weddings.
An area in the garden can be used to erect a marquee for special occasions seating up to 80 persons.
