Description

Built with high attention to detail, this property is made with comfort in mind, making it an ideal retreat.

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 central double-sided wood-burning stove and French doors to enclosed garden. Bespoke kitchen with range (gas hob/electric oven). Small boot room. First floor: Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and toilet. Twin bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet.

    Delightful. Wonderful cottage, deliciously comfy beds, fantastic location away from it all, gorgeous fixtures and fittings, friendly and welcoming owners. Loved every minute of it. Absolutely perfect. No negatives whatsoever. Slept like a baby and recharged batteries in peace and tranquility. Would go back in an instant. Superb.

    We were very comfortable in this well-equipped house. It was close to Bideford which we love to visit, especially with the friends who were with us. We visited RHS Rosemore, which as always was a real treat. The highlight was Hartland Quay, from which there was some fantastic walking. Nearby is the Atlantic Outlet Village for shopaholics. Restaurants to visit - Memories, which was just wonderful, and the Italian Kitchen (when we finally found it) had some very succulent food. Both were great.

    This was our second stay at Grooms Cottage - a really lovely cottage in a superb location. Spotless and extremely well presented on arrival, cosy and comfortable to come 'home' to after a day out. The walled garden was full of delicious fruit and veg, which the owners very generously encourage guests to harvest. The weather let us down this year, but it was no hardship at all to spend more time in the cottage relaxing and re-charging our batteries. Highly recommend.
