On reaching the approaches to Plymouth on the A38 from Exeter, stay on the dual carriageway following the signs to Liskeard and Cornwall. Take the second exit in two miles, at the Manadon Flyover (signposted Tavistock A386 and Airport).
At the roundabout at the top of the slip road, take the 5th exit signposted to Tavistock A386. Proceed and join a dual carriageway for approximately 2 miles to a large roundabout with traffic lights. Keep in the left hand lane, signposted to Tamerton Foliot. Turn left into Looseleigh Lane and then descend down the hill for just over a mile to the T-Junction and turn right into Tamerton Foliot Road. Follow this road into the Village passing St. Mary's Church, and the Inns and Post Office on the right. Ascend the hill for 300 yards and fork left into Horsham Lane with a small white signpost to Warleigh. After a further 200 yards turn left (still Horsham Lane) and continue to the top of the hill. Turn left at the Lodge through the gate into the drive, marked "Warleigh Private".
Proceed for half a mile, cross over another cattle grid and continue straight on, over the crossroads, through stone gate pillars. Follow this road bearing right for a further half a mile at a round red brick Dovecote. Keep right behind the Dovecote to approach the chapel end of the Mansion House, to arrive in the Tudor Wing car park.


Warleigh House occupies a superb unspoilt riverside setting enjoying outstanding views, close to the borders of Devon and Cornwall on the South East bank of the River Tavy, where it joins the River Tamar.
The property lies about a mile from Tamerton Foliot village and around 6 miles from Plymouth, with its busy marina and excellent slopping leisure, education and health facilities.
Plymouth airport is nearby with good road and rail services bringing Exeter (43 miles) with its international airport and London (230 miles) within easy reach.


With origins dating back to 12th/13th century, Warleigh House is an important Grade II* Listed Mansion House, of considerable historic and architectural interest.
Believed to date back to 12th/13th century, with additions in the Tudor Period, the property was further altered in the 18th Century.
In recent years, the present owners have undertaken considerable works in restoration and improvements to include, installation of new winodws and re-roofing and reconfiguring the interior to a very generously proportioned single residence with staff accommodation. Extensive works are still required to complete the property's reinstatement. Warleigh House now offers a purchaser a "blank canvas" to create what would, without doubt, be one of the finest country houses with a maritime influence in the South West.

LAND AND BUILDINGS Warleigh House is offered for sale with approaching 20 acres of gardens and ground - Unusually owning the foreshore on both sides of the river. The grounds include the original walled kitchen garden and a sizeable fresh water lake.    The buildings include Warleigh boathouse 28'X 14' (approx) with slipway private quay and lapsed planning consent for residential conversion. Derelict former Gamekeepers Cottage, Warleigh Dovecote and the ruin of a 16th century boathouse.

Services Mains electricity and water. Private drainage.
