Salston Manor

Where heritage meets modern luxury in East Devon.
This exclusive new development transforms a Grade II listed building into a private, yet accessible luxury residence of just 26 exquisite houses and apartments.


Originally an 18th century farmhouse, Grade II listed Salston Manor was extended and rebuilt in Elizabethan style in 1845 by William Hart Coleridge, nephew of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. In the twentieth century it became a hotel and was the birthplace of the world famous Donkey Sanctuary.

The hotel closed in 2007 and has now been substantially rebuilt as 11 apartments with a further 15 new houses discreetly located within approximately 4 acres of managed private grounds and woodland. The developers have meticulously restored, converted, and enhanced this mid-19th-century property, employing local craftsmen who have infused each space with a mix of authentic, historical charm and contemporary flair.


Nestled in the heart of East Devon's idyllic Otter Valley, Salston Manor emerges as a beacon of architectural splendour and contemporary living. This exclusive new development transforms a Grade II listed building into a private, yet accessible luxury residence. With a perfect balance of history and modernity, Salston Manor is a testament to the ethos “Preserving the past, enhancing the future” – a phrase that aptly describes this unique project.

Salston Manor is a perfect spot for enjoying the tranquillity and beauty of nature whether for retirement, families or downsizers.


Salston Manor is a Grade II Listed building set in the Beautiful Otter Valley between Ottery St Mary & West Hill some 11 miles from Exeter’s city centre, bringing urban amenities within easy reach. The development lies within a stone’s throw of Ottery St Mary and is conveniently located about seven miles away from Exeter Airport and six miles from the scenic Jurassic Coast.

This prime location is complemented by an array of nearby historic pubs and cosy restaurants and renowned gourmet dining such as Michelin-star ‘Lympstone Manor’, prestigious golf courses, and nature trails.
