Worswell Barton really is a hidden gem: 600 acres of National Trust Land on the Peninsula of the river Yealm, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, surrounded by the South West Coastal Footpath.
Worswell Barton was once part of the Revelstoke Estate situated on its 12-mile Carriage way, with wooded hills sloping down to the sea on three sides, great open views towards Dartmoor National Park, Rame Head in Cornwall, and Burgh Island, Bigbury, can be seen from the coast nearby.
The property is steeped in history, with stories from the Spanish Armada, the War years’ bomb craters, Domesday Book, and of course Lord Revelstoke. The Warren Wall, all 2 miles of it, was used to keep rabbits on the cliffs, were they would breed and would be caught to feed the estate workers.
Worswell has been farmed by the Rogers family for over 80 years; the farm is in a peaceful location, with only the sounds of daily farm activities, such as Farmer Phil and his boys going about their work duties, tractors, cattle, sheep and birds in the distance.
