A striking and expansive timber framed home

Lamper Head, completed in 1991, stands proudly in a stunning countryside setting, with panoramic views stretching from Dartmoor to the South Hams coast.

Situated on what was formerly the site of a grass tennis court and pavillion, Lamper Head includes a glorious cruck-framed hall. This has been created with a frame measuring 50 feet in length and 20 feet at the height of the ridge. Upon completion, it was thought to be the first new full cruck timber frame dwelling to have been built in England in 300 years. For this delicate, immensely skilled operation, our carpenters sourced and worked oak timber with a natural curve to mirror the pitch of the roof.
