Twigbeare remains of manor house.
Visited 14th November 1978. Much altered, no features of antiquity.

The present house on the site is believed to be of late 16th or early 17th century construction. It has been heavily altered and extended during the past 200 years. At some point in the 20th century the adjacent byre has been extended and converted to residential use, and in 1990 the pitched roof over that part of the building has been added. The main house has had extensions added to the rear in several stages. The roof covering of the core building was changed to thatch. Various unsympathetic
alterations have been carried out, resulting in a building that is very inconsistent in character and badly in need of sensitive refurbishment and renovation.
