The Secret Jewel on Woodbury Common STALLCOMBE HOUSE Where is it? Drive up Hulham Road out of Exmouth and turn left on to the B3180 over the Common. A mile on from Woodbury Castle, you will find a narrow tree-lined lane on your left, appropriately called Sanctuary Lane. Half a mile down here on the left is Stallcombe House. Drive through the gates, and your first impression is of tranquillity. Stallcombe was a 16th century farmhouse, set in 55 acres of farmland. Now expanded, for the last 30 years it has been home and a place of work for adults with learning disabilities. All have their own individually furnished bedroom, most of which are en-suite. All are enabled to live happily, develop their talents, and learn new skills to the maximum of their ability in their own time, without pressure or rigidity. A recent addition is Willows, a 6 bedded home specially built to care for the needs of those with autistic spectrum disorders. A safe haven in a busy world. The 5-acre organic garden, provides mostly for the kitchen, but also sells veggie boxes to local restaurants and private homes. Hero’s Corner is home alpacas, pygmy goats, Kune Kune pigs and Silke chickens where residents take responsibility for their daily care. Wild birds, including moor hens and mallards with their young can be observed in the reed-bed. Our barn owls interact with the residents. 450 free-range hens scratch about. The eggs they produce are sold on the egg-round, or on site. The Weavery produces high quality and imaginative craftwork, which can be bought or commissioned, pottery takes place weekly. The annual Summer Fayre attracts the public who also enjoy cream teas, ice creams, tombola, archery, bric-a-brac, cakes and bookstalls. Many people with learning disabilities from the local community come on a daily or weekly basis to spend meaningful time with us in the safe and stimulating environment. We’ve been here for over 30 years and want to invest in the next 30 years, providing a home and place of work for people with learning disabilities. Our established philosophy of holistic care for people and the environment will be enhanced by our new solar array, which will add to our newly installed bio mass heating and hot water system and the long established reed bed filtration system which takes care of our sanitary needs. Stallcombe House is a stand alone registered charity, with over 80 dedicated and well trained staff providing a unique, safe and engaging community environment.
