Ugbrooke House is a Grade I listed stately home nestled in the quintessential rolling green hills of south Devon.
It has a fascinating history covering 900 years, originally featuring in the Domesday book of 1086, and today it remains the private home of the Clifford family. The Honourable Alexander Clifford and his wife live in the main house, but each summer, they open the doors to their house and garden to allow visitors a sneak peek into their family home.
Visitors can take one of three daily guided tours through the house to learn more about the family, as well as view priceless tapestries, furniture and military artefacts And no visit to a Devon stately home would be complete without a Devon cream tea! The Orangery serves scones, homemade cakes and more substantial lunches with hot drinks and alcoholic refreshments so you can take a moment to enjoy the formal gardens.
