Description

Nestling in the hills, the cottage’s location offers a peaceful and relaxing stay with stunning views of Exmoor.

"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.

Chapel Cottage is a stylish romantic location for couples. This elegant cottage was once the family chapel but has been skilfully converted to comfortable and elegant accommodation. With its cosy sitting room filled with luxurious period furniture, sumptuous fabrics, period antiques and French doors onto a walled courtyard and terrace. The kitchen has handmade cupboards in Regency/Gothic style, Belfast sink, wood floor and dining area, and is reached by a short set of stairs. The pretty, light and airy bedroom has crisp linens, fluffy duvet, dual aspect windows and Victorian brass bed, ideal to enjoy a relaxing morning.
On a hot summer day explore the wonderful parkland, or spend a lazy afternoon on the shared tennis court. If you venture further afield, the Tarka Trail is only minutes away, and has extensive cycle ways with wonderful estuary views. Fishing and horse riding can be found within 5 miles. Shops and pubs 5 miles.

Sitting room with French doors to courtyard. Six steps up to kitchen/dining room with fitted handmade cupboards and breakfast area. First floor: Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with over-bath electric shower and toilet (bath is small ‘knee bath’ approx 4ft).

    We had a wonderful stay at the chapel. It is the cleanest and most well appointed and equipped cottage we've ever stayed in.

    We loved it. Our hosts, Mr.and Mrs. De Haan were charming and very helpful. It was so nice to be told we could pick fresh vegetables and sweet peas from their walled vegetable gardens. The grounds were lovely. The Chapel had one or two of the problems an older property has. The bathroom was small and the steam has clearly created a few damp patches but nothing that in anyway impeded our stay. The overall decor of the house was tasteful and, most importantly, the bed was comfortable with fresh white linen. The antique furniture smelt of polish when we arrived.

    A lovely cottage with an interesting history in beautiful and peaceful grounds. Friendly but non intrusive hosts.

    The accommodation was lovely and in a very peaceful environment. Sadly the weather didn't allow for walking as it was very wet and windy. I found the bed a little too high, difficult to get into, and not as comfortable as it looks. Because of the weather and the lack of double glazing the chapel smelt very damp ( a dehumidifier wouldn't go amiss in winter) but i'm sure this wouldn't be a problem in the warmer months. Overall the Chapel was a very pleasant, well equipped place to stay.
