Photos and Description of this 10 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Bideford - Berry Manor
Elegant Georgian house near the cliffs of the North Devon coast
Berry Manor is an elegant Georgian house situated remotely in open farmland close to the cliffs of the rugged and dramatic North Devon coast. This a designated ‘area of outstanding natural beauty’ and the house has superb views out to sea as well as inland across a wooded valley to the tall mediaeval tower of St Nectan's church.
Great care has been taken to retain the historic character of the building whilst discreetly incorporating the best modern services and to provide a great sense of contemporary style without the feeling of being 'too new'!
