However, the estate seems to have had a pension scheme, presumably in operation before 1920, for permanent staff. When Frank Stark, stonemason on the Poltimore estate, died in 1940, the 4th Baron wrote from North Molton sending condolences to the family: ‘I remember him well at Poltimore in the old days and I am pleased to know that his pension contributed towards his ease and comfort in his declining years’. In 1918 the 3rd Baron died; and in 1921 the last event in the history of the Bampfyldes at Poltimore took place when the estate of 1,960 acres was put up for sale.
Herbert Franklin, who was still living in Poltimore village in the 1950s, remembered these quarters when he started work there as a stable boy in the 1880s, and could look back to 1902 when, as a young groom, he accompanied Lord Poltimore’s coach and horses by train from Exeter to London for the Coronation of King Edward VII.

Instead of presenting a row of gables, the roof is tucked behind a panelled parapet. The whole effect is one of restraint, something that is not generally characteristic of this period of architecture in England when grand buildings were often built with a lavish use of classical motifs. 1692. A century later Ackermann’s print of 1827, the fourth of the images of Poltimore House known to exist before photography, is of the stuccoed south-east front with fallow deer (Cervus dama), a species of European origin, free to graze right up to the house, a practice which continued until 1939.
