Mothecombe Gardens

Mothecombe Gardens lie at the mouth of the Erme estuary, surrounded by the Flete Estate. They are approached through the hamlet of Mothecombe, which consists of fifteen thatched estate cottages. Mothecombe House was built in 1710 for John Pollexfen, a farmer, and occupied by his descendants until 1800 when it was bought by Henry Legassicke.
