Ugbrooke is set in a tranquil Devon valley landscaped by 'Capability' Brown.
It has a history covering over 900 years, featuring in the Domesday book of 1086, and exhibits a fascinating variety of alterations made over the centuries.
Robert Adam and 'Capability' Brown were commissioned to remodel the house, grounds and garden in the mid 18th century. Outstanding Adam interior designs and unique external features remain, while Lady Clifford's extensive interior design skills are apparent in many of the rooms today.
The House contains fascinating and rare insights into the family's history with a fine collection of paintings, military paraphernalia, exquisite furnishings, tapestries and needlework, furniture and porcelain. The fine Adam library contains a fascinating collection of historical documents.
The 18th-century Orangery is the perfect place to have tea, overlooking the parterre with its collection of palm trees and views of the garden beyond. The gardens stretch down to the lakeside, unveiling delightful views at every turn, while the parkland contains groups of fine mature trees, including Sessile, Red and Luccombe Oak, Giant Redwoods and magnificent English tree species.
