    "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.

    Dray Cottage is set in the small hamlet of Fallapit, just outside the village of East Allington midway between the towns of Kingsbridge, Totnes and Dartmouth. This AONB has many sandy beaches and stunning coastline very close by, including Blue Flag beaches Slapton Sands, Beesands, East Portlemouth, Bantham, Bigbury and Thurlestone. The town of Dartmouth is nestled on the River Dart and offers boat trips, exclusive shops, galleries, many pubs and some famous restaurants. Totnes, 5 miles up the river, is a town steeped in history, enjoying a colourful and exuberant atmosphere, while Salcombe is another pretty riverside town, boasting a busy estuary with many yachts sailing by and a myriad of interesting shops and pubs in its winding streets. There are several NT properties in the area to explore and some delightful open gardens. With the South Hams coastal path stretching over 60 miles there is great walking and time can be spent exploring the rugged moorland.
    A little further afield and well worth a visit is the Eden Project in Cornwall. Riding, sailing, sea and coarse fishing are available locally, as well as a good variety of shopping. Shops 3 miles, pubs ½ mile.

    Situated on the picturesque South Devon Coast, Torquay is one of three beautiful towns forming the sheltered Tor Bay and is renowned for the warm climate and clear bathing waters. The local beaches form a golden arc around the bay with shingle coves scattered nearby. Braganza has a sweeping gated drive which leads past the Mediterranean style garden to this exquisite Grade II listed Georgian villa set above Torquay’s harbour side and yacht marina. This fine house is attached to the owner’s apartment and takes full advantage of its southerly facing position with sea views into Torbay. The property has been renovated, to restore this gracious residence back to the grandeur of its period, which is around 1823. Once owned by Rear Admiral Sir Charles Dashwood and Lady Elizabeth this very impressive house is very spacious and has sea views from most rooms. There is a hot tub with beach and spa towels included. This is the perfect house for a large family to holiday together or a celebration, not just for a summer holiday but for celebrating special occasions throughout the year. Enjoy surfing, swimming, diving, sailing, angling and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife. Stunning views can be seen almost everywhere across Torbay, out over the English Channel, along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Ten Tors Dartmoor. Torquay is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth, Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth, a few miles away. Dartmouth and Paignton also have wonderful things to do.
