The Lakehouse and The Summerhouse exterior with landscape


Surrounded by tranquil gardens with stunning views across the East Devon coast and countryside, The Lakehouse is the ideal spot to take some time out. The 100 acre sculpture park includes wilded pastures, home to sheep, horses, and alpacas. There is a tennis court, rowboats on the lake and take the time to walk around the park and check out the synergy of environment and art.

The Lakehouse is tucked away in a private woodland glade, within the 100 acres of this Devon estate. With nothing but the sounds of nature for company, the lakehouse is a place where time seems to stand still. It sits right against the lake with the wooded Haldon Hills behind it and the sculpture filled park and pastures below. A truly magical setting for your stay.

The Summerhouse sits within a private area above the garden with stunning views from its large glass walls and its beautiful deck.

The lake and garden were designed by Britain’s greatest gardener, Lancelot “Capability” Brown, and creates an incredible ambience, particularly at sunrise and sunset when light and colour are reflected across the clearing.

Appearing to float above the lake and the gardens, the decked verandas are the perfect spot for your morning yoga session or to enjoy a sundowner after a long, hard day at the beach.

Inside, the summerhouse studio and lakehouse have a minimalist bohemian style, while the panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows give spellbinding views across the lake or gardens.

The Lakehouse comes complete with modern high-spec fittings, including a luxury wetroom and kitchen. The only thing you won’t find is an alarm clock – we think it’s much more agreeable to be woken by the birds’ dawn chorus coming through the window.

Enjoy outdoor eating, chaise lounges, row boat, tennis and walks around the farm and woodlands. Near beaches and 15 minutes from Exeter.
