A 14th century Devon property, The Great Hall is Grade I listed and situated on the edge of Dartmoor National Park
Situated in the village of Lustleigh, The Great Hall is an outstanding Grade I listed property and a fantastic example of medieval architecture on Dartmoor. The house dates from the 14th century with the remainder built in Strawberry Hill gothic style during the 1830s. Over the past three years the present owners have undertaken an exacting restoration working closely with English Heritage and the Dartmoor National Park.
The main hall – the Great Hall of the original house – is a fantastic entertaining space with restored stone windows, arch braced trusses and a granite flooring, and underfloor heating blending the modern with period detail.
