The Charm of Woodsome Lees
A picturesque spot on the Dartmouth Estate is Woodsome Lees, where is situated a centuries-old building; reputed to he a dower house — a house for occupation by the widow of the Lord of the Manor after his death, when his heir moved to the Manor House. The Manor House at Woodsome was, of course, for long a seat of the Earls of Dartmouth. It is now a golf clubhouse, and the property at Woodsome Lees is let to private tenants.
