Notes:

A La Ronde is an 18th-century 16-sided house located near Lympstone, Exmouth, Devon, and was built for two spinster cousins, Jane and Mary Parminter. It is in the ownership of the National Trust and is a Grade I listed building, as are the adjacent Point-In-View chapel, school and almshouses, together with a manse, which were also built by the cousins. The house is an accredited museum and much of the Parminters’ own handiwork is evident in the interior of the house. The gardens are Grade II listed in the National Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.

These photographs were taken May 25th 2014 during a visit to the house in overcast weather.
