It was extended in the middle of the 19th century by Sir Robert Throgmorton, Baronet, who kept his yacht in the bay. The estate was sold at auction in 1900 when it still owned more than 2,000 acres. The scheme in the 19th century was to develop, in a spectacular location, individual houses for wealthy Londoners who would travel down by steamer. The jetty was built and the remains can still be seen to this day. Thankfully none of the other houses were built so Martinhoe Manor is able to enjoy its privacy and seclusion. Over the 20th century the acreage diminished with much of it being sold to the National Trust. The property has been owned by the current family since 2000.The house is built of stone under a slate roof and has been run as a self-contained holiday business for the last 60 years, this could be continued, or the property could be converted back into a fabulous single dwelling, family home.It sits in about 26 acres of mainly woodland and garden and the main house is currently sub-divided into 7 self-contained apartments, of which one is occupied by the owners and their family.
