“Tapeley-or Tapelia as it is known in the Doomsday Book– has for over 1000 years held the fantastic elevated position overlooking the River Torridge. The views stretch as far as the Island of Lundy and fade into the horizon over the Atlantic.
Tapeley’s history is known in detail as far back as 1316 and has been in the present owner- Hector Christie- family since as far back as 1855.
Set in the beautiful North Devon countryside this stunning Stateley home is situated in magnificent gardens with terraced Italian Lawns housing an ornamental summerhouse, known as The Toot, and with palm trees on the bottom terrace lending a tropical atmosphere.
A lake with summer flowering water lilies found at the bottom of a woodland ravine all help to create a wonderful location in the beautiful North Devon countryside.” (From the website).
