Took my friends there last week who had been visiting from the US and we all really enjoyed the Patties and Ice Cream that Devon House is famous for. It was truly relaxing and the next day went back for delicious Strawberry Hill coffee beautifully prepared at the Coffee Shop on the grounds of Devon House. Also wonderful to do... More

Visited the grounds...nicely laid out...calm..great ice-cream. Decided to have lunch which was a disappointment. Expensive for no reason. The pulled pork sandwich had two thin slices of pork...not pulled pork as one would think. There is a great atmosphere..just have a drink and eat elsewhere

Devon House is an elegant, Georgian-style Great House built in 1881 by George Stiebel, the... More

So, if you're into Georgian architecture, this is one historical house to check out. It is beautiful and they have managed to maintain the authenticity of the place. The history of how and when the house was built is also good - George Stiebel, son of a white landowner and his black maid, built the property in 1881, after the... More
