Undercleave Farm, listed Grade II, is built of local stone, under a slate roof. The front façade is particularly attractive featuring stone mullioned windows and a traditional open porch. There has been a dwelling on the site since the Doomsday Book, when it was attached to the Manor of Axminster. The current early mid 16th century farmhouse has evolved over the centuries, which is evidenced in the wealth of traditional features such as massive chamfered beams, an inglenook fireplace with an elaborately carved wooden lintel and plank and muntin screens which add to the property's charm. The house has been lovingly restored as a family home. There are attractive views over the valley and the gardens from many of the rooms. The mature gardens feature an orchard and kitchen garden as well as a tree house.
Undercleave Farm is nestled in a tranquil valley in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Approached via a No Through Lane and then a drive which sweeps down to the property, the surrounding rolling East Devon countryside offers a range of rural activities with footpaths and bridleways in abundance. Set within the parish of All Saints the nearby village of Smallridge has an inn, primary school and an active village hall.
