Accommodating up to 12-15 guests and perfectly situated on the edge of the sought after South Hams; an area of undulating hills and wooded valleys running from Dartmoor, two miles to the north, down to the sandy beaches and isolated coves of the South Devon coast, about 10 miles away. The house is set in the parish of Ugborough, some 15 minutes’ walk to the thriving small town of Ivybridge; lodged on the southern edge of the rugged expanse of Dartmoor National Park. The A38 dual carriageway provides an excellent link to Plymouth and Cornwall in the west, and to Exeter and the M5 in the east, and is only five minutes’ drive to the north. There are international airports at Plymouth and Exeter, and mainline railway stations in both cities. Plymouth has, additionally, an excellent continental ferry service.
Filham House is a classically proportioned country house, dating principally from the 18 Century, with some later additions. The original house on this site was purchased in 1552 by the Williams of Stowford. The chapel of St. Andrew, whose ruins and tower are such an important feature of the gardens, was dedicated on 14 December 1402 for Peter de Filham and his wife Anthea.
This stunning house is set in 3 acres of its own grounds and is surrounded by beautiful countryside walks, has a heated swimming pool (April - September), lake and charming 14 century chapel ruin that has the most amazing views from the top of the tower.
For a special dinner or BBQ at Filham House we can highly recommend our personal caterer, Barbara Hosker of Blue Olive - Devon Chef.
