3/9 Lord Haldon Hotel Wall and
- entrance arch to former stable
Wall and entrance arch to the stable yard of Haldon House, house demolished in the
1920s. Probably late C18/early C19.
Illustrations show that the archway (facing east) was one of a pair of symmetrical
arches adjacent to the front left and right wings of Haldon House, begun by Sir
George Chudleigh, circa 1735 and completed after his death in 1738. (Hoskins).
Large round-headed arch with a pair of later wrought iron gates flanked by paired
Roman Doric columns with a Doric entablature crowned by a balustrade. On either
side of the archway round-headed niches, presumably for statuary, rectangular
recesses above each niche. The left hand wall returns to the rear and has a moulded
cornice. A C20 French window has been inserted in the wall, partly truncating a
round-headed recess below a rectangular recess on the south side.
A survival from Haldon House, described by Hoskins as 'one of the most notable houses
in Devon'. It was purchased by Robert Palk (qv the parish church) in about 1770.
parts of the stabling and a circa 1900 section of service rooms survive from Haldon
House and have been converted to an hotel.
