    This truly delightful fisherman’s cottage, built around 1770, overlooks the busy little harbour of Brixham with uninterrupted views of Torbay and out to sea. The holiday cottage has been lovingly and sympathetically restored, retaining many original and period features. It boasts a small enclosed decked area leading to a flight of 34 steep stone steps to a roof-top level garden, with spectacular sea and town views.

    Situated off the main harbour in one of the oldest, pretty side streets, Fisherman’s Cottage is a Victorian terraced house which has been completely renovated to provide a spacious holiday cottage, and is decorated and furnished to a very good standard. With a large window to give fantastic views out to sea, making this an ideal location for a family holiday, or for friends to get together. There are many fantastic restaurants, tea shops and gift shops to browse. Brixham has many activities all year round including a Pirate Festival each year, the trawler race and so much more. The harbour shops and restaurants are a 3-minute stroll away, or take a boat trip to Torquay and Dartmouth for a day’s fishing.

    The coastal path is easily accessed leading to lovely beaches and coves; the popular Fishcombe Cove is at the top of the road. Brixham forms the third part of Torbay - the others being Torquay and Paignton. The bay is known as the English Riviera due to its unique micro-climate. Walkers and navigators can escape and explore the depths of Dartmoor, spot wild ponies, cross ancient stone bridges spanning the clear waters of the River Dart, and other rivers. You can also feel the somewhat eerie presence of the tors, seven rocky hills presiding majestically over the moors. Take the ferry across to Dartmouth, the neighbouring town to Brixham, set on and across the River Dart. At the mouth of the river are Kingswear and Dartmouth Castles with the rocky waters of the estuary lapping at their feet. There are many National Trust properties and Agatha Christie’s summer house is well worth a visit. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

    Dining room. Spacious kitchen with slate floor. Steep turning stairs to first floor: Living room with large picture window. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. Steep turning stairs to second floor: Double bedroom with 5ft Victorian-style bedstead. Steep turning stairs to third floor: Twin bedroom with painted floor and sloping ceiling.

This is a real rural hideaway, yet lies equidistant between the towns of Dartmouth, Totnes and Kingsbridge. The main farmhouse is the owners’ home and dates back to the 16th century; the adjoining barns have been converted into two luxury holiday homes (ref KAAY and KAAZ) overlooking a grassy meadow, an old apple orchard, a meandering natural stream and a pond full of wildlife. Beck Barn and Fern Barn are almost identical in the style of their layout. Renovated to a high standard, this original Devon barn, estimated as being 200 years old, retains its original scissor beam trusses and features. The accommodation is reverse living, with the spacious open-plan living, dining, kitchen areas upstairs and bedrooms downstairs. White plaster walls, rugs on oak floors and contemporary kitchens allow for a warm living area. Luxuriously designed to merge the traditional barn features and rustic timbers with modern living and a wow factor. The underfloor heating is supplied by the state-of-the art ‘ground source heat’, a super effective method of supplying heat from nature itself. The interiors are totally unique and offer a high degree of comfort and style. The beds have crisp, white cotton linen and supersize, fluffy towels are provided too. The old farmyard around which the barns are positioned is quite charming, with old sweet-smelling rose bushes creeping up the stone barn walls and pretty planted areas.
    For complete peace and quiet, this is the place to be - there is no light pollution here, and the sky at night is a spectacular sight to see.

    "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.
    The upper wings of the Coach House have been converted into two elegant apartments, one of which is Luppincott Chambers. Accessed via a central oak staircase, the entrance hall is flooded with light from the belvedere atop the roof, and the panoramic window above the stairs. The charming sitting room has period Regency style furniture, antiques, and duel aspect windows giving views over the walled garden, parkland and towards Exmoor. With French door leading onto a spacious roof terrace, perfect for al fresco dining or enjoying your morning coffee. The regency style kitchen/dining room has everything you need to cook a romantic meal.
