Ilsington Manor House (Remains), Devon


  • Located in Ilsington, Devon, South West England, England
  • In the north east corner of Ilsington St Michael's churchyard, across the road from the local school, are the partial remains of the old manor house and an information board that outlines its history. It begins: 'Ilsington Manor is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, and was one of six medieval manors in the parish ...'
  • 'In 1871 part of the site was sold to the Vicar and Churchwardens of Ilsington to provide land for the present school.'
  • Whilst you're exploring the churchyard, look for Ilsington St Michael's Church Lych Gate. Again, there's an interesting information board on site
  • The village of Ilsington, and its hotel, are close to one of the most popular areas of Dartmoor National Park. Haytor Rocks and Hound Tor (East Dartmoor) are a short drive away. It's great walking country
