Property details

The Magazine is one of the most interesting properties we have in our portfolio. Built in 1642 as an ammunition store in the time of Oliver Cromwell and the Civil War, it just oozes mystery and history. The house was built in the style of a chapel to disguise it’s real use. It is situated on the old Roman road, the Peddars Way, on the outskirts of the village of Sedgeford. There is rumour of a secret tunnel running to the coast to aid escape and covertly move munitions during this turbulent period of English history.

To stay here gives guests a chance to sample living in a fabulous historical conversion whilst still retaining modern comforts. There are too many original features to list but the large stone mullioned windows are a wonderful feature in the sitting room. It accommodates five people in three bedrooms, two of which are in the eaves. There are cosy log burners in the kitchen and sitting room.

Please be aware this is an ancient building, so there are uneven floors, low stone window cills, and steep steps throughout the building. The accommodation is on three levels and the bathroom and WC are based on the middle level.

Guest reviews

“This quirky home is a wonderful, welcoming place to stay and I do mean 'stay', we were sad to leave! Long walks start at the garden gate and the warm log-burners lure you into languid evenings sharing a glass of wine and home-cooked meals with friends. The Kitchen cupboards are filled with every practical item you'd need to cook any meal, simple or exotic. ”
