Description Flete House is set in unspoilt rolling parkland punctuated by magnificent oaks and other centuries old hardwood trees, overlooking the beautiful Erme Valley as the tranquil river meanders towards its estuary a couple of miles downstream. Indeed, residents and their guests can walk all the way to Mothecombe beach, if they wish. From the terraces are views towards Ermington and Dartmoor. This splendid house was the family seat of the Mildmays. The earliest parts of this magnificent Grade 1 Listed house date back to Elizabethan times. In the 1870s the house was greatly enlarged by Norman Shaw and in the 1960s the Mildmay wing was sympathetically added. Set in 12 acres of Listed grounds, the house and stables have been lovingly restored and refurbished and now comprise 29 exclusive self-contained serviced apartments. Flete House is designed for an easy going lifestyle and relaxed environment, ideal as a main or a second home.

Situation Set deep in the rolling hills of South Hams in Devon, Flete House overlooks the attractive Erme Estuary and the Dartmoor National Park. For shops, you are close to the picturesque town of Modbury, the bustling town of Ivybridge and the city of Plymouth.
