Description

This cottage boasts stunning views of Exmoor and trips to the beautiful Lundy Island can be taken by ferry.

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 wood-burning stove and doors to garden. Well-equipped bespoke kitchen with range (gas hob, electric oven). First floor: Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and toilet. Twin bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet.

    I cannot say enough good things about this property. It is such a gorgeous place! It had everything we needed and my family thoroughly enjoyed the serenity and natural beauty of the place.

    This is a beautiful cottage, tranquil, peaceful, and superbly appointed and the welcome pack of home made scones were absolutely delicious. The chilled bottle of wine in the fridge went down very well also.

    Very lovely, comfy, cosy converted threshing barn. Katie gave us a warm welcome which was so lovey. Left scones, wine and a pint of milk for us on arrival (scones did not take long to go) and tasted amazing. There was nothing that we could want for in this property, everything had been so well thought about. There was a lovely wood burning stove which we made really good use of. Encouraged to pick fresh veg from the walled garden whilst we were there (which we did), which was brilliant as this is the first time we have ever experienced this in a holiday cottage. The furnishings/kitchen/bedrooms are of the highest standard and the double bed was the comfiest bed we have every slept in. Very peaceful and quiet and loved walking around the grounds, seeing the pheasants, deer and the hare go by. We were so sorry leave and we shall be booking this again as soon as we can. What a lovely place to stay, our No 1 holiday cottage.

    We had an excellent stay at the Linhay for a week, plenty big enough for 4 adults, 2 separate en-suite bedrooms. It was clean, pretty well equipped and comfortable and the owner was interested and helpful. Well positioned outside Bideford, remote but not isolated and its worth noting that the information provided on the booking sites is in regard to this property is accurate. Would definitely return.
