The Grade II Listed Farmstead at Week is one of the finest local examples of a model farm, constructed to an exceptional standard by Francis, 7th Duke of Bedford between 1842 and 1844.
Week is situated just a mile from Dartmoor National Park’s western boundary and within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It lies about halfway between the A30 at Lifton to the North and Tavistock, five miles to the South.
Brent Tor, familiar West Devon landmark, is only a mile away and the church on its summit is visible for many miles around.
Tavistock, an ancient Stannary Town dating from the Doomsday book, nestles beside Dartmoor and the beautiful River Tavy is home to the popular Pannier Market. The town offers several renowned local schools including the private ‘Mount Kelly’, a delightful range of shops including a famous cheese shop and a number of celebrated restaurants.
