Holcombe Rogus, Devon

Holcombe Rogus is a village and civil parish in the English county of Devon. The population of the parish is 503. The manor house known as Holcombe Court was built by the Bluett family. It is situated to the immediate west of the parish church, hidden behind a high boundary wall, and is described as "perhaps the finest Tudor house in Devon". The last element of the village's name – often mistranscribed as Regis – is that of the tenant of the manor at the time of the Domesday book in 1086.
