Welcome to Pickwell Manor Apartments, a unique blend of historical splendour, natural beauty, and contemporary comforts situated within six picturesque acres of Devon’s countryside. Overlooking the tranquil coastline and less than half a mile from Putsborough Beach, Pickwell Manor promises a memorable holiday experience that seamlessly marries the luxury of modern amenities with the charm of yesteryears.
The Manor is divided into eleven distinctive apartments, each one named and styled with an essence of its own – Grace, Affinity, Bliss, Jubilee, Liberty, Serenity, Divine, Constance, and Amity – along with the converted historical Chapel and the inviting private Nook. Each apartment boasts well-equipped interiors and preserves the building’s historic features, offering a comfortable, homely atmosphere.
Grace, the largest apartment, was once the manor’s grand kitchen and lounge and now exudes elegance with its high ceilings, working fireplace, and stunning master bedroom. Affinity, Bliss, and the others, each one carrying a distinct charm, range from light-filled spaces to quiet hideaways perfect for couples, families, or larger groups, accommodating from 2 to 9 guests.
Nestled within these timeless architectural marvels are acres of magical gardens and paths, making for great exploration, play, and relaxation areas. Wander to the Italian Garden surrounded by mature shrubs and flowers, play a game on our scenic tennis court, or venture to the farthest corners to discover Pirate Island, or enjoy breathtaking views from Lundy Terrace.
Amid all this grandeur, Pickwell Manor proudly stands as a beacon of sustainability. Upon acquiring the property, the owners embarked on a transformative journey, prioritising environmental consciousness at every step. The Manor has been revolutionised with a biomass boiler replacing the oil-fired boiler and a solar panel array to harness green energy. It even boasts its Power-vault battery to store generated electricity, powering three electric car charging points and bikes.
Water is sourced from a borehole, and an on-site commercial recycling facility ensures a minimal footprint. Pickwell Manor has been awarded the GOLD level Green Tourism Award as a testament to these efforts.
The owners’ commitment to making a positive impact doesn’t stop there. Every penny earned from the Manor goes to the Pickwell Foundation, a charity founded by the owners, which focuses on aiding displaced people and combating climate change.
A stay at Pickwell Manor is more than just a holiday; it’s an immersive experience that combines the allure of history, the serenity of nature, and the warmth of hospitality while contributing to a greater cause. Whether you’re seeking a tranquil retreat, an adventurous getaway, or an environmentally conscious vacation, Pickwell Manor is the ideal choice. Our promise to you is a memorable stay that intertwines luxury, history, sustainability, and philanthropy, making your holiday resonate with purpose and joy.
