This small country house nestled deep in the Exe Valley is a hidden gem of Regency Devon’s history. Built in 1805 by Captain William Dunsford to replace an earlier 17th Century dwelling of the same name, the house and its grounds have remained largely untouched ever since. The early house was recorded by the Reverend Swete in his travels in Georgian Devon. Ashley Court has been home to no less than 3 of Tiverton’s Mayors (John Upcott, Thomas Cosway and William Dunsford) and our project is to bring it gently back to the full vibrancy of life while maintaining its historic charm and slightly faded grandeur. To arrive at the front gate is to fall back 200 years to a slower pace of life and an appreciation of time and place.
