LOCATION Fallapit is situated just outside the village of East Allington, around three miles from the market town of Kingsbridge and ten miles from historic Totnes. Dating back to the 15th Century, the estate was owned by the Fortescue family until the late 18th Century – the original manor house was rebuilt around 1810, and split into apartments in 2008. Today the country estate offers a peaceful retreat in the countryside, surrounded by acres of grounds. The market town of Kingsbridge, less than ten minutes drive away, is situated on the pretty Salcombe Estuary and offers shops, restaurants, plus leisure centre with indoor pool, whilst picturesque Salcombe, with its stunning waterfront, boutiques and tea rooms, is just a 15-20 minute drive from the estate. With historic Totnes nearby, offering individual shops, weekly Elizabethan market, boat trips, museums and more, and the beautiful beaches and stunning scenery of the South Devon coastline within easy reach, this is the ideal location for exploring the South Hams.
