Berry House

Introduction

Berry 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 (in a Westerly direction – affording great sunsets) as well as inland across a wooded valley to the tall mediaeval tower of St Nectan’s church in the nearby hamlet of Stoke. This large house to rent is available for big parties, holidays and corporate events

The History

Its origins date back to mediaeval times, but the house was enlarged and completely remodeled in the 1760s to provide the home for the land agent of the neighbouring Hartland Abbey Estate. Workmanship was to exceptionally high standards for the time, including fine paneling to many of the rooms. The house remained remarkably untouched until acquired by the present owners who undertook its painstaking and sympathetic restoration in 2006/7. 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.

Accommodation

Ground floor

Berry House is a welcome sight on the beautiful and rugged cliff top and once you enter through the front door of the House it does not disappoint. The entrance hall has the main staircase ahead and opens onto the wood panelled drawing room, with open log fire and comfy sofas on one side and the elegant dining room on the other.

The rear hall leads to a large flag-stoned kitchen with sunny breakfast room beyond. French windows open from the breakfast room to the walled terrace for outside dining. The house is perfectly set up for walkers, dogs and muddy wellies, with the boot / utility room having its own entrance to the side of the house onto a small enclosed garden.  Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom and at the rear, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a secondary staircase. Cellars include an original wine cellar and laundry facilities.
