Description

Dove Cotes House is truly unique, with a fantastic interior including a roof terrace providing breathtaking views.

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



High in the Devon hills above the Taw/Torridge estuaries Webbery Manor Estate is an oasis of rural tranquillity. Steeped in history and with several noteworthy owners, Webbery Manor Estate was first mentioned in the Doomsday Book. It was given to Nicholas the Crossbowman, by a grateful William the Conqueror as a Saxon manor. In the 17th century it passed to the Lippincott family, one of whom set sail with the Mayflower flotilla to settle in America. In the 18th century, John Cutcliffe, the grandson of the owner, fought at the battle of Waterloo and was personally promoted by the Duke of Wellington.
Set in 30 acres of parkland and woods, with grazing sheep, deer, owls, pheasant, birds of prey and other wildlife. The delightful gardens have numerous specimen trees and banks of rhododendrons. While the organic walled kitchen gardens grow some more unusual varieties of vegetables to the UK. You will find Romanesco, Cavelo Nero, and Pink Fir Apple potatoes to name a few, all complimentary subject to season and availability.
Originally the coach house and stables for the Manor, and named after the dove cotes in the gable which is adorned by a magnificent wisteria. This wonderful period property has a wealth of features, with vaulted ceilings, and galleried landings. Relax in the large lounge with its spectacular brick fireplace, wood burning stove, and door onto the terrace. The bespoke kitchen has range, marble worktops, Belfast sink, breakfast area, and limestone floor. While the dining room with wood burning stove and oak refectory table is ideal for social gatherings. Dove Cote House has 4 bedrooms, but you might want to make sure you get the master bedroom! With its mahogany bed, beamed vaulted ceiling, period furniture, and roof terrace with breathtaking views to Lundy Island. The en-suite bathroom with Victorian slipper bath, gives a touch of opulence to this delightful room. The three further bedrooms are en-suite, and have crisp, fresh linen and plump duvets.
No trip to Devon would be complete without a visit to the peaceful, unspoilt nature reserve of Lundy Island. Fishing and horse riding can be found within 5 miles. Shops and pubs 5 miles.

    Spacious comfortable well equipped house, in beautiful surroundings with long walks, a tennis court and walled vegetable gardens, where we were encouraged to help ourselves to the produce. Would highly recommend.

    Three of the rooms were very different to the master which was embarrassing. One bedroom smelt of dogs, one had no shower. No downstairs toilet. Gloomy lounge. But overall stunning conversion in a great location and with marvellous hosts- just not for us as four couples. Would suit a family better.

    This cottage is one of the best equipped cottages in the south west and would highly recommend anyone to stay there.

    A beautiful house but unfortunately it had a very opressive atmosphere making it difficult to relax. The beds were extremely uncomfortable and it was impossible to have two showers one after another in the master bathroom due to the hot water running out after 20 minutes. Kate the owner was wonderful and the welcome pack amazing.

    Dove Cote house is a great place to stay, it is very well equipped, clean and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. To be able to use the tennis court and pick vegetable's from the walled garden's was fantastic. I would highly recommend this holiday home.
