Ellacott Barton. This house has been extensively modernised although a few beams remain on view inside. The whole exterior has been modernised at the front (west side) and at the south end. The north and east sides remain unaltered and appear to be fairly old. Bailiff of farm had no knowledge of history of the house. (Site visit 14/03/1951)

The farmhouse is an ancient Barton House but the date when it was built cannot be ascertained. (Devon ONB 1905 p3)
