Combe Sydenham Hall
Combe Sydenham Hall
An Elizabethan manor house built in 1584 by Sir George Sydenham, located in a secluded setting in a quiet Exmoor valley. The house was rebuilt and slightly reduced in size in 1660. The manor is approached through a medieval gateway, and the interior features mementoes associated with Sir Francis Drake, who married Sydenham's daughter.
According to local folklore, George Sydenham's headless ghost rides a phantom horse in the area north of the B3188, heading towards Monksilver.

The manor house is set in grounds with a 500 acre estate with a deer park and woodland walks. The park is open throughout the year, but the house is generally only open to groups of visitors by prior arrangement.
