About A la Ronde

Another world awaits inside this 1790’s 16-sided house. Walls are decorated with feathers, shells and pictures made of seaweed and sand, and every space contains mementoes from the travels of Jane and Mary Parminter, the creators of this extravaganza.

Outside there’s an orchard, hay meadow and colourful borders, with views over the Exe Estuary.
