Discover Knightshayes, a gothic Victorian mansion set in the heart of the rolling mid Devon countryside.

There’s plenty to see from looming gargoyles, imaginative carvings including the ‘seven deadly sins’ and the medieval great hall complete with minstrel’s gallery.

Take a look around our exhibition dedicated to the extraordinary career of Joyce Wethered, the last family member to live at Knightshayes and the “greatest lady golfer of all time”.
