The Bakehouse and Wheelhouse are located in the peaceful hamlet of Ponsworthy, nestled in the spectacular West Webburn valley, in the heart of Dartmoor. The Bakehouse and Wheelhouse, together with the Mill across the lane, served as the bakery and wheelwrights for the local area up until the mid 19th Century.

The properties are well placed to take advantage of the excellent recreational and sporting facilities in the area, including moorland walking, riding, shooting, hunting, golf and water sports. Both The Bakehouse and Wheelhouse have been individually let in the past to provide a useful secondary income.

THE BAKEHOUSE was originally the bakery and shippon for the adjacent mill which served the local population. The 7ft granite 'one sack' industrial bread oven, so called because of the commercial production of bread, remains and is a feature of the kitchen. Converted in the 1970's and winning awards from both the Civic Trust and the RIBA,
