"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 the 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 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.

    Quite possible one of the worst holiday properties I've stayed in. It is very tired and in need of some serious investment to bring it up to anywhere near the rating it has somehow acquired. The smell in the place was so bad, and so pervasive, that I had literally had to wash everything I took with me, when I got back; even the things I hadn't even worn, that were tucked away in wardrobes upstairs. The three piece suite was so grubby and smelly that I couldn't bring myself to sit on it once - having to made do with uncomfortable upright chairs at the grubby dining table. The fridge is so tiny that it could only just provide enough accommodation for one, never mind four. The cooking range is huge, however. Why? Every work surface in the kitchen area was so sticky and horrid that I had to prepare all my food on plates. Even the chopping boards were contaminated with the previous occupant's apparent love of oinions or garlic. The entrace lane is so stoney and lumpy (and with muddy puddles), that if you're driving anything remotely sporty (I took my Lotus), you'll be down to 1mph max and praying that the sharpest of the stones don't force their way into your beloved low-profile tyres. Also, the car park is immediately adjacent to a lot of very tall trees. I can never understand the rationale behind cars parks next to trees - they just do not belong together. The only positive thing I have to say about this particular property is that the grounds are immaculately maintained and perfect for an after-dinner stroll. But that's it - never again.

    Absolutely loved The Linhay, in fact booked to stay again before leaving. The cottage is very clean and comfortable and located in beautiful peaceful surroundings. Have no hesitation at all in recommending this cottage. The owners are genuinely helpful people and we received a warm friendly welcome upon arrival, as well as great advice on eating out etc. They obviously take every effort to ensure the cottages meet all expectations and it shows. For a holiday in Devon the Webbery Estate will be my first choice from now on.

    The linhay was an outstanding property with all the equipment that you could ask for. The owner was very pleasant and obliging. A very nice peaceful place to stay. We will definitely go back again. Ken and Mary.

    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.
