Many who pause on journeys to or through Devon have yet to discover Bridwell Park, a charming country house that's been hidden from public gaze for over 240 years.

The Devon home of Lord Ivar Mountbatten, this serenely spacious estate has welcomed visitors since 2015. The driveway sweeps majestically up through lushly classical English parkland.

The Orangery's graceful arched windows overlook the terrace and gardens beyond. Pair a local Roastworks coffee, Exmoor Tea or fruity Luscombe juice with an Exploding Bakery cake, boule of local ice cream or hearty Chunk of Devon pasty. House salads, sharing platters and the organic soup and sourdough are other menu highlights.

Check ahead for closures or to catch community events like artisan markets, musical Sundown Sessions or Supper Clubs. Bridwell showcases many local producers, flying the flag for seasonality and independents in the region.
