Hall, in Bishops Tawton, has been home to the Chichester Family since the early 14th century.

The house is approached up a mile-long wooded drive. The current Victorian house, a vernacular mansion in the 16th-century style, was built in the 1840s for Robert Chichester by Philip C. Hardwick. Hardwick produced a series of grand reception and family rooms with splendid views over the Taw valley and a staircase hall which forms the centre of the house.

Enjoy a tour of the ground floor of the house including the state rooms, plus a tour of the historic yard and ancillary buildings and the walled gardens.

Tours that are scheduled will be listed below. If none are scheduled yet, please check back later, or find other tours you might enjoy on our tours listing page here.
