Windgate House
Windgate House is a detached, Grade II Listed residence
which has origins dating back possibly as far as the early
1600s. It has a particularly handsome front façade, part of
which is adorned with a beautiful Wisteria and has a
superb range of mullion windows with hood moulds.
The property has well presented and spacious
accommodation which has been lovingly cared for and
maintained, and is found in excellent order. It retains
many fine character features, all of which aid in creating a
warm and welcoming period ambience. These features
include a magnificent early 17th century Beerstone
chimney-piece in the sitting room which has an inset
woodburner, flagstone floors to the hallway and kitchen,
with a former inglenook fireplace, now housing an oven
and Aga and a heavily beamed ceiling. There are also
window seats and many fine period leaded windows.
Many of the rooms take advantage of a country aspect to
the rear, which can be gained over the mature and well
established gardens.
To summarise, Windgate House is a rare and ancient
residence which was a superior home of its day and
possibly the home of a yeoman farmer (a member of a
social class or one that cultivates their own land). A true
piece of old Devon.
Gardens and Grounds
Windgate House is approached from the small country
lane through a 5-bar gate which leads to a large brick
paviered turning area providing parking for several
vehicles. Adjoining this is a large 2-storey traditionally
built stone and slate roofed barn (there is a covenant
restricting conversion of this building into living
accommodation). There is also a detached former cart
shed which is currently used as garaging. A gated low
stone wall leads to the pretty front garden which is well
The majority of the grounds lay to the rear of Windgate
House and there is a large terrace which gains delightful,
panoramic country views over the adjoining farmland to
the hills in the distance. Steps lead to a large area of lawn
which is surrounded by mature plant and shrub borders,
as well as many established trees. Beneath and to the side
of the formal gardens are two areas of paddock. In total
the land extends to approximately 1.4 acres.
From Honiton proceed out of the town in
an easterly direction taking the road
signposted Dunkeswell just before the A30.
Follow this road over the River Otter
(Langford Bridge) and continue up the hill
for about 1.4 miles. After passing a left
hand turning signed ''Springhill Farm'',
take the next right hand turning and
Windgate House will be found after
approximately 50 yards on your right hand
