Poltimore House originally was completed in 1560 – the house of Richard Bampfylde.
It has had various uses over the years including as an academy for young ladies, a private hospital and then part of the NHS, and a private nursing home before falling derelict.
In 1987 the ballroom wing was damaged by fire.
In 2000 the Poltimore House Trust acquired the property to try and save and preserve this wonderful old building.
Our visit is private, so there will not be any other public so you will be free to use tripods.
Please beware that the house is in a poor state of repair and certain areas are roped off to prevent access for your own safety – but there are plenty of photo opportunities. You will also be free to wander the grounds.
