The charming house has been the subject of much improvement since it was last used as a farmhouse and now offers well presented, stylish and practical accommodation to suit modern living. The reception rooms downstairs are large enough to accommodate entertaining but cosy enough for family living. There are doors out to the delightful sheltered gardens and dining terraces.

Upstairs all of the bedrooms have their own bathrooms and the recently added main bedroom suite has a spectacular vaulted ceiling with extravagant bathroom and dressing room. The house lies centrally within the land sheltered by the rising ground to the south west but high enough to enjoy long views to the moor.

The barn has also been the subject of recent improvement to provide a great space for partying or larger gatherings. The main space forms a modern "great hall" with an adjoining catering kitchen and lavatory. It is overlooked by a mezzanine gallery which offers more space or is currently used for a gym. The barn is situated close to the rear of the house beside the entrance drive. It has its own area of grass tearace outside the double glass doors.

The two cottages (Cromlech Cottage and Spinster Rock Cottage) are traditional semidetached cottages beside the entrance drive. They have both been recently renovated and have been used partly as guest cottages and partly for holiday lettings on a restricted basis over the summer. They both offer similar high quality accommodation each with its own garden area and outdoor utility space.

Before reaching the courtyard, the drive forks around to a concrete yard, either side of which are timber framed buildings with corrugated roofs and timber cladding. To one side of the yard is a three-bay implement/hay store and to the other is the stable building, incorporating 4 loose boxes with lighting, individual heaters, rubber matting, drinkers, mangers, Victorian style fittings, and central concrete passageway.

From the yard, five-bar gates lead to a sand school being competition size 60m x 20m (192'6" x 64'2") and on the other side of the yard is a further riding arena. Around the yard and stabling are a range of gently sloping post and railed pasture paddocks, incorporating 2 field shelters, water drinkers and spring.

Double doors from the drawing room and garden room lead out to a delightful small walled garden, on the south side of the house, with paved terrace, pond and shrubs and plants. Enclosing one side is a traditional stone garden store building with thatched roof. Wrought iron gates lead out through a high stone wall to the gently sloping gardens around the south and west sides of the house, with areas of lawn interspersed with a profusion of colourful ornamental trees, shrubs and plants and also incorporating some traditional stone walling, clipped yew hedges, circular ash house and rock gardens.

From the kitchen doors lead out to a wide paved terrace that catches the evening sun making a further outdoor dining space. Post and rail fencing separates the gardens from a large pasture paddock, from where there are spectacular and long distant views, to the south and west towards Castle Drogo and Chagford. Adjoining this is an area of unspoilt woodland, with a mixture of deciduous and coniferous trees providing an unspoilt haven for wild fauna and flora. To the north of the property, beyond the woodland and beside the road, is are further pasture paddocks within one of which is the Spinster's Rock, being an ancient monument in the style of a cromlech.
