Prince Charles’s former estate for sale in Dartmoor National Park — and he still owns the right to fish there

In the heart of the Dartmoor National Park, an Edwardian estate once owned by Prince Charles – and where he still retains fishing rights – is for sale for the first time in nearly three decades.

Bought by its current owners from HRH the Prince of Wales 27 years ago in what was its first private sale, Brimptsmead Estate has a main six-bedroom house, two three-bedroom cottages, a bank of the River Dart with fishing rights, and direct access to the moor.

There’s also a six-car garage with a party space on the level above.

Prince Charles retains the right to fish on the riverbank at the property although he must give 24 hours’ notice, according to Knight Frank who are marketing the estate for £4,950,000.

Prince Charles is not thought to have used his fishing rights in the three decades since selling the property, and the Duchy of Cornwall estate still owns much of the land surrounding it.

“It’s very private,” said Hamish Humfrey of Knight Frank. “You’ve got direct access to the moor, and amazing views over open moorland.”

“Yet, in the context of it being on Dartmoor of course, it’s relatively accessible to major trunk roads.”

Brimptsmead Estate is around a 45-minute drive from Exeter. Train journeys from there to London Paddington take from around two hours.
