This former fishing lodge sits above a river and has “spectacular far-reaching” views over the Tamar Valley. 

Lamerhooe Lodge, in Tavistock, is in an elevated, south-facing position above the River Tamar, and has been transformed from a fishing lodge into a large family home.

The property is being sold by estate agent Savills for a leasehold price of £1,350,000. 

Amy Hart is marketing the property for Savills in Exeter and commented: “Once a humble fishing lodge, Lamerhooe Lodge has been transformed over the years into a large and impressive family home. 

“Immaculately presented inside and out, it provides over 5,000 square foot of flexible accommodation, set within around six acres, including wonderful formal gardens. 

“Thanks to its elevated position, it boasts the most spectacular far-reaching views over the Tamar Valley, the best I have seen in some time.”
