A remote retreat that was once part of Sir Francis Drake's childhood home is on the market for £1.1m.
Shillamill Farm and its eight acres of land were originally part of the farm the Elizabethan explorer's family leased when he was born in the early 1540s.
The picturesque haven has stunning countryside views including the striking Grade II Listed Shillamill viaduct, a former railway track with 12 50ft arches.
The farm in Tavistock, Devon, has an orchard, woodland, boating and fishing lake, double bank river frontage and private access to a canal walk.
