Property Description

"A truly magical estate to escape to and unwind..."

Nestling peacefully high in the hills above the Taw/Torridge estuaries, the Webbery Manor Estate - a Saxon manor listed in the Domesday Book as being given by the conqueror to Nicholas the Crossbowman - is a haven of rural tranquillity, yet lies within convenient striking distance of the North Devon market towns of Bideford and Barnstaple. In the 30 acres of parkland and woods surrounding the Manor House (rebuilt during the Regency period), grazing sheep compete for space with deer, hare, owls, pheasant, birds of prey and other wildlife. Stunning views of Exmoor and Lundy Island (accessible by ferry from Bideford and Ilfracombe) may be enjoyed from the grounds on clear days. Gardeners will delight in the many specimen trees and rhododendrons, and in the stone and brick walled kitchen gardens from which complimentary seasonal produce is made available to guests. In addition, the gardens at RHS Rosemoor, Marwood and Tapley Park are all within easy driving distance.
Four of the properties (HDDN, HDDO, HDDP and HDDQ) were originally constructed using materials from the estate and all have been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard with careful attention being paid to comfort and detail. Beautifully decorated and furnished with antique and period pieces, they offer solid oak floors, hand-made curtains and wood-burning stoves with fuel available from the estate’s woodland. The owners’ tennis court may be used subject to availability (non-marking footwear must be worn). Dove Cote House is a substantial residence, truly unique with dove cotes set into the front gable of the house. The interior boasts vaulted ceilings, galleried landings and many other interesting features. The main bedroom has a roof terrace with breathtaking westerly views out to Lundy Island - just the place for breakfast or watching the setting sun with a glass of wine on a warm summer’s evening.
A link to the Groom’s Cottage can be opened up to create a six-bedroomed cottage accommodating twelve people. The Groom’s Cottage which adjoins the Dove Cote House has open-plan accommodation on the ground floor with French doors leading to a secluded walled garden. The Linhay, where carts were once kept and the hay stored for the horses which worked the estate in a bygone age, is a two-bedroomed detached cottage with a bright and airy interior which oozes charm. Both bedrooms enjoy westerly views over the Bristol Channel towards Lundy. The Appleloft, which once housed the estate’s cider press is a delightful spacious, two-bedroomed cottage with a gallery and vaulted ceiling, adjoining the Groom’s Cottage.
Chapel Cottage (H81), the fifth property, adjoins the Manor House (occupied by the owners) and is a conversion of what was once the family place of worship, whilst the sixth, The Coach House (HPPR and HPPS), has been reconstructed in the Regency style and has wonderful views towards Exmoor in the distance. It has been divided into two stunning wings, Cutcliffe Chambers and Luppincott Chambers. Each is sited either side of an internal light tower and can be booked separately or, for a larger party, taken together. The Garden Cottage is a spacious retreat for two, and as it adjoins The Coach House it can also be booked as an annexe to this property to create a five bedroom cottage accommodating ten.
Webbery is ideal for family gatherings, celebrating a birthday or anniversary or for those who just want to escape and unwind on holiday in a truly magical place. The locality offers a hugely varied range of walks in woodland, along coastal and esturine trails and for the more energetic, The Tarka Trail is located only a few minutes away and provides extensive (and largely level) cycling with wonderful estuary views. The sea is never far away from Webbery and the long sandy beaches of Instow...

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. I actually stayed in garden cottage rather than chapel as the owners thought I would like that better and it was empty. Beautiful accommodation and owners were very personable - supply of scones, wine, milk etc. very nice touch, as was invitation to pick anything out of the produce garden. Sept 2012.
  2. Would recommend this cottage, it was very comfortable with excellent furnishings & every thing you need. The owners were welcoming & informative, nothing was too much trouble, will certainly hope to return to this splendid cottage. March 2012.
  3. We only stayed for a weekend but the overall impression was that this is a very high quality accommodation with very thoughtful and dedicated owners who put their heart and soul into the properties. March 2012.
  4. Absolutely first class accommodation and excellent hosts. Dec 2011.
  5. Beautifully decorated and furnished converted chapel in the extensive grounds of the Webbery estate. Hosts were very welcoming (freshly made scones were a treat as was the guided tour around the two walled gardens). Oct 2011.
  6. The pubs and property is very quiet, but excellently located for access to all major attractions, towns, etc. It is a country stay with the ability to easily access busier areas, such as towns, beaches etc. Our hosts were perfect, as was the accommodation and surroundings. Space, plus quality in an older fashioned setting. We could not have been happier and would recommend the accommodation to anyone. We would love to return. July 2011.
  7. We had a most enjoyable holiday in this very quiet, cosy, stylish country cottage. Plenty of places to visit but great to come back and relax at end of day. Lovely grounds and made to feel very welcome. April 2011.
  8. One of the most stunning properties we have stayed in. Easy to get to nearby attractions but still feel "away from it all" when there. Fantastic welcome, wonderful hosts and special treats such as home-made scones. Highly recommended and hope to return for Christmas or New Year. April 2011.
  9. We had a lovely few days at this property, Kevin was very welcoming and the home made scones in the welcome pack were lovely. This will be our first choice if we visit this area again. May 2011.

  13. Beautiful setting, friendly owners - scones and bottle of wine after a 9 & 1/2 hour journey were much appreciated. July 2010.
  14. Set in lovely grounds, so peaceful. Beautifully & luxuriously furnished to a very high quality. Large comfortable bed in very spacious bedroom with windows on 3 sides. Lovely kitchen too with home made scones to greet us on arrival. Two well stocked fruit & veg gardens from which we were encouraged to help ourselves. Fantastic hosts so friendly. They provided a 27 page guide recommending places to visit, where to eat out etc which we based our daily itinerary on. July 2010.
  15. The Webbery Estate can only be described as a "jewel in the crown" in North Devon. The accommodation was very comfortable and tranquil.
