  • History - Knapp House
    India and the Far East James was born on a ship the Norwood in Bombay hence his middle name The house was built as a shooting lodge and you can just imagine the sort of country house weekend guests would have enjoyed as they came to Exmoor to get away from the bustle of city life We think it was a family home until the Second World War when Redhill School in Surrey was evacuated here In the early 50 s James Stapledons son Richard turned it into a boys boarding school and renamed it Kestrels We still get old boys who visit and tell great tales of pine cone fights and cricket in the garden In the house some of the cupboards still have labels on the shelves of different birds These were some of the original school boarding houses Certainly Buzzard is apt as they swoop across the fields and regularly sit for hours on the fence posts bordering the paddock The original school bell still hangs in the hall of the house If you have any memories of being at school here or information about the Stapledon family then we would love to hear from you We
