Langleigh Country Cottages

Langleigh Country Cottages consist of The Lodge and The Stables, a pair of one bedroom cottages in the grounds of the historic Langleigh Country House, the oldest inhabited house in Ilfracombe, North Devon.

The house started out life as an Elizabethan Manor but had a considerable ‘face-lift’ in the latter part of the eighteenth century into a beautiful Regency residence. The property managers / owners live on site in the main house.  

 

This delightful and gracious Grade 2 listed Elizabethan manor house nestles in grounds of nearly 3 acres at the foot of the National Trust owned Torrs.

The property has great historical interest and was built in 1570 by Thomas Dennys, a prosperous Ilfracombe land owner when Queen Elizabeth 1 was on the throne.    

 

Its most illustrious period came 200 years later when it became home to two of Lord Nelson's admirals in succession, Edward Down who commanded a ship at Trafalgar and a James Bowen who became Commissioner of the Royal Navy. James Bowen lived at Langleigh for 30 years and was visited here by Lord Nelson.
