Hemerdon House

Book Tickets Online


Situated in the beautiful South Hams area of Devon, and set in its own parkland, Hemerdon House was built in the late 18th century by the ancestors of the current owners. Members of the family offer guided tours of the interior on certain days of the year and visitors are also welcome to explore the grounds on those days. The house contains a wealth of local history, with naval and military mementos, paintings, furniture, china and silver collected by the family through many generations.
