Upcott House is an impressive Regency residence built in 1752, which enjoys panoramic views over beautiful countryside towards the Taw Estuary and the hills beyond. It stands proudly in 69 acres of pasture and woodland offering a full range of leisure activities including swimming, snooker and children's play areas. Within the grounds is the Carriage House, which is a single-storey home close enough to the main house to enjoy all the leisure facilities. It has been converted from the original carriage building and is traditionally furnished throughout. There are two comfortable bedrooms, a twin and a double, a good-sized family bathroom and an open plan lounge/kitchen/diner all overlooking the manor courtyard. The Regency manor house offers a fun-packed base from which to explore North Devon. It has been stylishly converted into four apartments and two cottages. They are all managed by the owner, whose family has owned the property since it was built. The atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious with a wide range of leisure facilities on site including a full-sized snooker table and a 45 foot heated indoor swimming pool. Nearby Barnstaple is the commercial and agricultural centre of North Devon. It is a charming place that comfortably blends a handsome past with an energetic, present-day buzz. It has a mix of cutting-edge retail outlets, long-established family owned stores and little boutiques. The pannier market hosts local food producers interspersed with dozens of cafes. Drive beyond Barnstaple to Exmoor National Park, which has Europe’s very first International Dark Sky Reserve, the tallest tree in England, the highest cliffs in England, almost 250 species of bird and over 1,000 different flowering plants and grasses, as well as wild ponies and red deer

The estate is very nice, with the mansion, beautiful flower gardens, woodlands and meadows with great views. The swimming pool is great, that was a real bonus to our stay. Carriage cottage is quite small, but comfortable and nicely furnished and decorated. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We had a pleasant stay here in July 2018.Mr Petrus Santegoeds - 6th August 2018
