Barn, stair tower, garden wall with arch, listed Grade II.
Created since 1945 by Lionel Fortesque (and now owned by a trust of that name) within the walls of part of a medieval monastery and now spread to some 7 acres. Built around a stone tower and walls which recall Sissinghurst and Scotney. (3ha) of mixed planting with lawns and trees. From the tower there is a bird’s eye view of the enclosed garden. Fortesque was a collector and developed the garden on a steep slope on the edge of Dartmoor, planted on five levels in compartmental style, with herbaceous borders, trees, unusual shrubs and stone paths. Views to Cornwall.
