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, snooker room 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.
Fortescue is a spacious first floor apartment accessed by an external staircase. The good sized rooms and big feature windows make the property feel open and airy and offer remarkable views out over the Taw estuary and out to sea . It has one double and one twin bedroom, a large bathroom and a comfortable lounge/diner with a feature fireplace, as well as a fitted kitchen. 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.
