Event details

Friday 26 July, 10.30am - 3pm  

Join the Dorset Group on a visit to Grade I listed Holcombe Court, described as ‘the finest Tudor house in Devon’.

We will be welcomed by the owner Nigel Wiggins, who will guide us around the house and outbuildings including the dovecote, stables, glasshouse and summer house.  

We’ll hear about the 20-year repair project and see the gardens, both of which have been described in Country Life. 

During our picnic lunch break there will be an opportunity to explore the Church of All Saints adjacent to Holcombe Court.  

After lunch we will visit The Priest’s House, a remarkable 16th-century building cared for by The Landmark Trust.

The Priest’s House has survived from 1500 and was originally a Church House. Having been repaired by The Landmark Trust in 1984, it’s now available for short breaks and holidays.
