Built in 1752 this impressive Regency Manor House enjoys panoramic views over lush green fields dotted with trees and hedges to the Taw Estuary and across the water to the hills beyond. Standing majestically in 69 acres of pasture and woodland and offering a wide range of leisure amenities including indoor swimming pool and ample grounds for activities and relaxation.  The market town of Barnstaple with its shops, and restaurants and historic Pannier Market is three miles away. The village of Braunton, around 10 minutes drive, is known for its laid-back vibe, surf shops and cafes. For surfers and beach lovers the golden sands of Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe are a huge draw and easily accessible from here. The nearby Braunton Burrows are reputed to be England's biggest sand dune system and their lunar appearance is quite unusual when viewed from afar. They are a haven for nature and wildlife and a fascinating place to walk. Cyclists will enjoy the Tarka Trail which runs for some 30 miles through the scenic North Devon countryside. Bikes can be hired at Braunton or Barnstaple. 
The Regency Manor House offers a wonderful and friendly base from which to explore the area. Tastefully converted into four apartments and two cottages the properties are all managed by the owner, whose family have been in possession of the property since it was built. Whilst offering the chance to enjoy living in a truly splendid location, the atmosphere is totally relaxed and unpretentious with a wide range of leisure amenities to ensure that all guests can enjoy their stay whether they are seeking pure relaxation or an active, sociable holiday.

The owner has a wonderful property. It was a privilege to share it for a week. Our apartment was spacious and airy. The views over the river and out to the estuary were magnificent affording us some wonderful sunrises. It was lovely to see the sheep, cows and horses each day and to take our dogs on their early morning walk in the woods. In the current climate, procedures put in place were understandable, acceptable and reassuring. The owners were very friendly, approachable and always available to help despite being very busy on their working farm. It was a wonderful week and have already told friends and work colleagues of this wonderful place. We shall be returning. Why ever not!

Mr G,

Great location with beautiful views - 2nd visit to this spacious apartment and it’s very good value for money.

Ms D,
