Set deep in the rolling hills of South Hams in Devon, a couple of miles away is the picturesque Georgian town of Modbury, at the heart of the South Hams and the vibrant waterfront city of Plymouth is just ten miles to the west. FLETE HOUSE
Flete House is set in unspoilt rolling parkland punctuated by magnificent oaks and other centuries old trees, overlooking the beautiful Erme Valley as the tranquil river meanders towards its estuary a couple of miles downstream. From the terraces are breathtaking views towards Ermington and Dartmoor. This splendid house was the family seat of the Mildmays. The earliest parts date back to Elizabethan times. In the 1870s the house was greatly enlarged by Norman Shaw.
Set in 12 acres of landscaped grounds, the house and stables have been impeccably restored and refurbished and now comprise 29 exclusive self-contained serviced apartments. Flete House is designed for a relaxed lifestyle in a stylish and tranquil environment. The apartments may be used as a main home or a 'lock up and leave' home for those who travel, or perhaps have another residence abroad. APARTMENT 9 ACCOMMODATION
