A historic English country estate with a French chateau feel and royal connections is on the market for £5.5m.<br />
<br />
The site of Grade II listed Yarner House was once governed by William the Conqueror, mentioned in the Domesday Book and a popular hunting site in Tudor times.<br />
<br />
The seven-bedroom house sits in a 247-acre estate on the edge of Dartmoor National Park and has stunning views over the surrounding landscape, including Yarner Wood.<br />
<br />
The ancient woodland was once part of the property until 1952 when it was sold to the Nature Conservancy to become one of the first national nature reserves.<br />
<br />
Where the current Yarner House is built, it is thought to have had a hunting lodge in Tudor times, with connections to Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI and Queen Mary.
