Tamar estuary country house

A former farmhouse with an annexe and two holiday cottages on the Devon/Cornwall borders

Hewton House is an immaculately presented country property with a separate annexe and two holiday cottages. Originally built as a classic devon farmhouse with associated outbuildings, the house was added to between the wars. The current owners have carried out an extensive programme of improvements since 2008, which leaves Hewton House in very good condition.
