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.
The properties are set in 45 acres of parkland and woods, with a large variety of wild mushrooms alongside grazing sheep, deer, tawny and little owls, pheasants, various birds of prey and other wildlife is regularly sighted. The delightful gardens have numerous specimen trees and banks of rhododendrons giving a spectacular spring display. The two walled kitchen gardens are stocked with espaliered fruit trees, flowers and vegetables, including Romanesco, Cavelo Nero, and Pink Fir Apple potatoes. The produce is complimentary subject to season and availability.
The lively market town of Bideford is nestled along the picturesque banks of the River Torridge and makes an excellent day out, with a weekly market and working harbour inviting visitors to savour the timeless allure of its historic quayside, where charming cafes and shops beckon amid a backdrop of colourful boats. Wander through the narrow cobbled streets of the Old Town, where historic architecture tells tales of bygone eras, and explore the enchanting Bideford Bridge. Nature enthusiasts can embark along the Tarka Trail, while the captivating Burton Art Gallery and Museum provides a cultural respite. Bideford promises a delightful tapestry of experiences for those seeking a quintessentially English coastal town adventure. With so many pubs and restaurants to choose from, why not treat yourself to a meal out in Bideford, Instow or Barnstaple before heading home? Instow is a tranquil coastal village adorned with pastel-hued cottages and offering panoramic views of the sandy shores and rolling hills capturing the essence of a seaside retreat, while the bustling market town of Barnstaple seamlessly blends historic charm with a vibrant atmosphere. Fishing and horse riding can be found within 5 miles. Shops and pubs 5 miles.
