Goveton is a peaceful hamlet well off the beaten track, yet within two miles of Kingsbridge and all its facilities, and close to the beautiful South Devon coastline with its spectacular cliffs, coves and beaches and beautiful walks over National Trust owned headlands. Also readily accessible are the Salcombe and Dart Estuaries with their excellent sailing and boating facilities and golf courses at Thurlestone, Bigbury and Dartmouth. Buckland Court or Longclose Farm, as it was originally named, was built in the 1860s as the Home Farm for the Buckland Tout Saints estate. Built on a grand scale it epitomises the splendour of a model home farm for a large and important estate. Buckland Court is solid and confident with a proud ambience all of its own. Set around an unusual double courtyard, it retains a plethora of original detail and at every turn the eye is rewarded with ample evidence of traditional craftsmanship at its best. Today the original use and layout of these magnificent buildings is reflected in their unique character and transformation into twenty one completely individual homes.
