Yarner House – Dartmoors Finest Country Retreat And Forgotten Houses Newest Addition


This year sees the stunning addition of Yarner House in Devon to Forgotten Houses. Originally built in the 16th Century as a Tudor hunting lodge the private house nestles high in the hills of Dartmoor giving it spectacular panoramic views across gardens, woodlands and the Wray valley.

The name Yarner comes from medieval French and means “where eagles soar” and the house is aptly named due to the amount of buzzards seen in its grounds.


It boasts eight newly refurbished bedrooms which sleep a total of 15 people, beautiful Scandinavian style dinning, reception and function rooms, buttress walls and an impressive tree lined driveway

The Yarner estate is spread over 250 acres and extends to just below the summit of Haytor, an imposing granite outcrop and Dartmoor’s most famous landmark. These stony outcrops seen all over the moor were originally quarried to build London Bridge, with the remains of an old train track to transport the quarried granite still visible in the grounds of Yarner.




The house itself is impressive yet homely, mainly thanks to the owner Maja Holman’s interior design skills and loving refurbishment of the house which now includes a rather impressive Moroccan copper bath!

It is the perfect country retreat for large or extended families, and can also be hired for events, conferences and even weddings as it has a full license.


The House is available to hire on specific dates, and availability can be checked here: https://www.forgottenhouses.co.uk/properties/yarner-house/
