Budleigh Salterton Riding School
The building is square with a four-hipped roof. The walls are largely of stone, now rendered. There is a datestone "Salem chapel, built 1719" and a window cill inscribed "enlarged 1836" when the seating capacity was augmented.
Inside, the gallery across the front end dates from 1719. Two others were added in 1836 and are supported on slender cast-iron columns with moulded caps. The roof structure is of special interest: the vaulted ceiling rises from a single central post - originally of timber, replaced in the nineteenth century by a cast iron one. This in turn has now given way to a stronger modern steel column. When the cast-iron post was removed a purse containing coins and other items was found.

Lily Farm Vineyard
This unique sixteen-sided house was described by Lucinda Lambton as having 'a magical strangeness that one might dream of only as a child'.
It was built for two spinster cousins, Jane and Mary Parminter, on their return from a grand tour of Europe in the late 18th century. It contains many objects and mementoes of their travels.
The extraordinary interior decoration includes a feather frieze, gathered from native game birds and chickens, laboriously stuck down with isinglass. There is also a fragile shell-encrusted gallery, said to contain nearly 25,000 shells, which can be viewed in its entirety using a touch screen 360 degree virtual tour.
