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.
