Millaton House is an immaculately restored and beautifully configured country house with leisure amenities, including a pool and tennis court. There is an integrated lodge apartment and the house stands in magnificent landscaped gardens with fine views towards Dartmoor National Park. About 6.4 acres

Millaton House has been completely refurbished throughout in a fresh, classic country style. It is a comfortable, elegant and glamorous house which includes a self-contained apartment accessible from the main house or by its own exterior entrance. The stylish interior design has added an extra layer of luxury and comfort to this outstanding residence.

The complete refurbishment gave the owners the opportunity to improve the configuration of the house which is now an ideal property for entertaining friends and family. The principal reception rooms and bedrooms all enjoy beautiful gardens views. Notably, the “working” elements of the house are thoughtfully arranged to the rear and in addition to the main kitchen, the house has a service kitchen and laundry for the use of staff and chefs. There is also a wine cellar and walk-in refrigeration room.

Millaton House has enviable leisure facilities, including an indoor swimming pool, sauna, tennis court, gym, cinema, billiards room, library, summerhouse, landscaped gardens and a small lake. The billiards room on the first floor features a full size snooker table and home cinema system with recessed 3 meter screen.

From the house there are wonderful views over its own gardens and ground and the adjoining parkland to Great Links Tor and Chat Tor. The gardens and grounds extend to about 6 acres and a central feature is the lake stocked with fish. There are a wide variety of shrubs and trees throughout the grounds.


Millaton House is located in a remarkably unspoilt part of Devon, yet communication links and local amenities are excellent. The location of the house means that the best of Devon and Cornwall can be enjoyed without the crowds and congestion.

The closest village, Bridestowe, is only a 2 minute drive away. It is a thriving village with two churches, a primary school, post office/ village hall and a 17th Century Inn, The White Hart. The cricket club is near to Millaton House. There is a large Waitrose supermarket at Okehampton (6 miles) and the popular town of Tavistock is about 9 miles away with an excellent selection of local shops. The area offers some exceptional facilities including restaurants at Olga Polizzi's Endsleigh Hotel and Gidleigh Park. A full range of retail, commercial and leisure amenities can be found in the Cathedral City of Exeter.

Exeter 22 miles, Tavistock 9 miles, Okehampton 5 miles. About 1 mile to the north of the Dartmoor National Park.
