Description
One of the finest surviving Gothic Revival houses, built in the lush landscape of mid-Devon, Knightshayes Court is a rare example of the work of the eccentric and inspired architect William Burges. ... Read more
Built for the grandson of pioneer lace-maker John Heathcoat in 1869, the house is an exciting architectural experience, with extraordinary 'medieval' romantic interiors, rich decoration and ceramics. The restored and fully productive organic kitchen garden is a treat for everyone who enjoys local produce. The vast garden, which was the Heathcoat Amory family's great passion, is renowned for its rare trees, shrubs and seasonal colours.

First to Review

A Victorian period stately home, Knightshayes Court has an appealing gothic style appearance, and rolling landscaped gardens. Designed for, and owned by, a lace-manufacturing family, Knightshayes is off the A361 to Barnstaple and is easy access from the M5. Knightshayes is quite a romantic, magical style house, with nice gardens to look around, including a topiary and kitchen garden.
