Devon, England

The Moult is one of the finest and most substantial, private houses situated along this exclusive part of the South Devon coast and is surrounded by acres of private gardens.


Built in the 1700s, once owned by the Earl of Devon and used as the location for filming an Agatha Christie drama, this is a house full of history and stories.  The stunning sea views can be enjoyed from all aspects of the house, the gazebo, the Italian garden, Orangery, fire pit or the walled garden.  There are even steps leading down to the sea with beaches at either side.  It was from a small summer house in the gardens that Alfred Lord Tennyson penned ‘Crossing the Bar’, a landmark which can still be seen from the house today.   The kitchen gardens produce cut flowers and home grown, fruit and vegetables in season for guests staying in the house.

The Moult is one of the larger properties along this exclusive stretch of the south Devon coast with uninterrupted views across the estuary and out into the English Channel in front, the vast wilderness of the Dartmoor National Park behind and the historical Naval bases of Dartmouth and Plymouth just around the corner.
