"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 giving a spectacular spring display. 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 estate threshing barn, now beautifully converted to a two-bedroomed detached cottage. The barn doors replaced with full height picture windows with views towards the Bristol Channel and Lundy Island. Beautifully decorated and furnished with antique and period pieces, solid oak floors, and hand-made curtains. Relax in the stylish, living room with Chinese carpet, and wood-burning stove on marble hearth. There are comfortable chairs to relax on and watch the flat screen TV, and doors leading to enclosed garden with views towards Lundy Island. The large bespoke kitchen with double range cooker is ideal for family breakfasts and informal evening meals round the large farmhouse table. The double en-suite bedroom room has triple aspect windows, brass bedstead and crisp fresh linen. The peaceful twin en-suite bedroom has period furniture, wood floor and plush bed linen.
The lively market town of Bideford makes an excellent day out, with weekly market and working harbour. With so many pubs and restaurants to choose from, why not treat yourself to a meal out before heading home. Fishing and horse riding can be found within 5 miles. Shops and pubs 5 miles.

Large open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove and doors to enclosed garden. Well-equipped bespoke kitchen with range (gas hob, electric oven). First floor: Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and toilet. Twin bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet.

    This was the best of the 26 cottages and houses we have stayed in over the last 30 years or so. Wonderful welcome, lovely host and hostess, situation very beautiful, perfectly equipped, birds a bit noisy, esp. dawn chorus! - weather excellent, ideal for exploring N.W. Devon, sorry we could only stay a week.

    The cottage was fantastic. Equipped with everything we could need to make our stay enjoyable. Katy and Kevin were very welcoming and gave us plenty of tips on where to visit and where to eat. A week wasn't long enough!

    The Linley is a beautiful cottage, spacious,light, cosy clean and welcoming , the beautiful heavy,hand made curtains make the cottage so warm and cosy.It was so peaceful, with just the birds for company,pure heaven.The lovely gardens and grounds were immaculate, and the walled vegetable garden is well stocked for the season , and for us to use as a complimentary extra, we also had home made scones on arrival, and there was milk in the fridge, .We were thoroughly spoilt ,and a great deal of thought was put into making our holiday absolutely perfect. .

    This was quite the best accommodation we have ever stayed in - we could not have asked for more in the way of creature comforts and cleanliness. The owners were delightful, very welcoming and could not have been more helpful. We loved the peaceful surroundings where we were welcome to walk and found the location ideal for the places we wanted to visit. very highly recommended!
