1. Colleton Hall and East Wing, Devon
Nestled within 38 acres of private woodland and parkland, Colleton Hall and East Wing offers the ultimate country escape if you’re looking for total tranquility.
The present owners have lovingly refurbished the hall, enhancing its original features while timelessly blending them in with updated furnishings. It’s outside where the real magic happens though, setting the stage for long walks through the totally private woodland and alongside a stream which flows to the Little Dart River.
