In 1789 Rev John Swete wrote that it was ‘a spot of no common beauty’: he noted that ‘the chief beauty of Peamore lies in the undulating form of its grounds, rising and falling in the regular alteration of hills and dales - in its woods, groves and trees’. A map in the Somerset Record Office shows the Parkland in the eighteenth century. There is a painting of Peamore dated 1804 by Francis Towne in the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.
