The present Delamore, the fourth house to be built on the Estate, was commissioned by Admiral Parker and built in 1859. Delamore has remained in the same family since 1688 when it was purchased from the Balmains by Sir George Treby of Plympton.
Delamore Arts and Sculpture Exhibition takes place annually, every day in May. The exhibition presents the largest collection of artist's work in one place in the South West. Extensive gardens featuring ancient Rhododendrons and Azaleas are at their best in May creating a vibrant and exciting backdrop to the finest Sculpture exhibition in Devon. Based at Cornwood near Ivybridge, Delamore is right on the edge of beautiful Dartmoor and makes for a fantastic day out.
The exhibition is open to the public every day in May 10:30am until 4:30pm including weekends and bank holidays.
