Waterside Manor 2

Waterhouse Manor The South West

A gorgeous Georgian gem in deepest Devon

Sleeping up to 13, Waterhouse Manor is a beautiful Georgian farmhouse in Devon, replete with original features. Step from the portico entrance into the flagstone hallway and you could be in a period drama. The past is evoked by ornate fireplaces, antique furniture and original sash windows with shutters. You’re brought up to date by the palette of Farrow and Ball colours, luxury brand accessories and high-quality TV and sound systems.

While you serve drinks in the light-filled sitting room, the children can make their den in the cosy snug. Cooking is a pleasure in the fully equipped kitchen, complete with Aga and American-style fridge freezer, while the elegant dining room makes an occasion of mealtimes. Upstairs, the master ensuite bedroom is huge, with space for your morning workout. In all the bedrooms, sleep is assured with the help of pocket-sprung mattresses, crisp cotton bed linen and restful décor.

This gorgeous large holiday home is tucked away in the South Hams, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in South Devon. The quintessentially English landscape is a short drive from the wild beauty of Dartmoor and the chic seaside towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe. The perfect setting for a restorative holiday.

So much more than a holiday home

Waterhouse Manor is situated on an estate with fabulous facilities. Explore the 14 acres of glorious Devon countryside or simply relax on the sun terrace and enjoy the views across to Dartmoor. You can take a dip in the outdoor pool, play tennis, and watch the children burn off their energy in the adventure playground. And, if the Great British weather is making its presence felt, head for the indoor pool, sauna and the soft play area. Then, after a busy day, sink back in the hot tub and watch the stars come out.
