THE HOUSE
Delamore
The present Delamore, the fourth house to be built on the Estate, was commissioned by Admiral Parker and built in 1859. Delamore has remained in the same family since 1688 when it was purchased from the malmains by Sir George Treby of Plympton. It is still a traditional agricultural Dartmoor estate.
Two of the principal rooms in the house are used as galleries for hanging paintings. Immense windows provide excellent natural light and visitors have an opportunity to view the paintings at leisure within the atmosphere of this impressive country house.

Originally designed by St Aubyn the gardens have been altered and changed over the years but are now in the process of restoration including the Millennium Avenue with 52 lime trees and the largest cromlech on Dartmoor.
