The Lodge is an attractive, sizeable (just over 4,000 sq ft) Grade II Listed 7 bedroom property set in the heart of Yealmpton with a wealth of period features throughout. It benefits from spacious well-proportioned receptions rooms comprising a drawing room and a dining room both with working open fireplaces and sash windows with working shutters. It also enjoys a further sitting room which is an attractive dual aspect room and a kitchen/breakfast room with AGA and a Belfast sink. There are further basement rooms leading onto the mature generous garden. From the bedrooms southerly views over the village and surrounding farmland can be admired. Outside there is ample parking and a detached garage with cobbled flooring.

Yealmpton is set in the beautiful South Hams countryside, just above the head of the Yealm estuary, with Dartmoor National Park to the north east and the coastline to the south with its beautiful estuaries, cliffs and beaches. The city of Plymouth is a short distance to the west and Newton Ferrers, at the mouth of the River Yealm and noted for its sailing, is even closer at hand. Yealmpton was described as a borough in ancient records and tradition says the Saxon King Ethelwold had a palace here. The annual Yealmpton Show, which has been running since 1874, is held at nearby Kitley House, the family home of the Polloxfens and Bastards since the time of Elizabeth I and where the nursery rhyme Old Mother Hubbard was written. The village itself has a number of amenities including several shops, primary school, health centre, two pubs, restaurant, garage and Church.
