Wood is a Grade I registered landscape - one of only five in Devon - designed at the beginning of the twentieth century by Thomas Mawson around an Arts and Crafts house for which he did the ground plan.  The gardens comprise a series of formal enclosures with various garden structures including a loggia with roof terrace overlooking the bowling green, a tea house, twin Woodgazebos, lake, stream, and extensive walled kitchen garden.  The house and gardens are currently being restored prior to opening as a medispa.
By kind permission of Mr James McDiarmid.
