Shute Barton is a Medieval House with with royal connections. The word ‘Barton’ means farmhouse.
The Bonvilles built the earliest surviving part of the house in the mid-15th century.
Thereafter it was rebuilt and improved until the late 18th century. Shute Barton was given to the National Trust in 1959 by the Carew Pole family. Up until 2010 it was still occupied by members of the family.
Today Shute is recognised as one of the more important surviving non-fortified manor houses of the Middle Ages. After a major restoration project it became a holiday cottage, open four weekends a year to visitors.
Come discover Shute Barton with battlements and towers set in the rolling east Devon countryside.
This magnificent house is also open to members of the public four times a year for guided tours. You can discover the great kitchen containing what is believed to be the largest fireplace in England and take a look at the attic room with its medieval roof structure.
