We all have the pictures of this winter’s floods etched on our collective memories. Many communities have been devastated and what we can all do now is return to the country as a matter of some urgency. We can and should support local businesses to get them back on their feet as soon as possible.
Tourism is such a massive economic driver
It is essential to so many of Britain’s more rural counties and taking advantage of everything the country has to offer in Spring is a must. The UK’s geology, which is one of the most diverse in the world, means as you pass from one region to another the landscape changes dramatically.
Majestic landed houses punctuate stunning scenery
These changes in turn affect the nature and character of the architecture depending on the building materials used and the flora and fauna too. What is consistent from north to south, east to west are the incredible landed houses punctuating this exciting scenery. These houses have seen so much history and bear witness to so many extraordinary events that have shaped the nation over hundreds of years.
Open your eyes to some incredible stories and artefacts
If you want to learn about what makes Britain so special then time spent staying in a landed house will open your eyes to some incredible stories and artefacts. You will also have the pleasure of relaxing in some of the most beautiful and tranquil accommodation it is possible to find anywhere.
Devon’s Landed Houses will provide
One end of the country that was affected by those winter floods was Devon. Even as we write the railway line is still dangling above the treacherous seas. Yet usually its landscape is benign and Devon boasts some of the most romantic and picturesque landscapes that have ever graced chocolate boxes and jigsaw puzzles. If you want thatched cottages, tradition, artisanal foods and good old-fashioned manners then Devon will provide.
A Landed House can work out more economical than a B&B!
The county is filled with bed and breakfast establishments but Landed Houses would like to let you into a secret. You can stay in a grand historic house and if you can fill the whole house with guests (you only need 27) it will work out cheaper than a B&B. Yes, really. Who wouldn’t want to stay somewhere like Buckland House which is offering this splendid deal.
Learn the deadly duplicitous art of Croquet!
You can recline within 289 acres of parkland, farm land and woods. There is a swimming pool, boating lake, fishing and skeet shooting. Not only that you can acquaint yourself with the highly traditional sport of croquet on a beautifully manicured lawn.
Think 1066 and all that!
Imagine yourself as being yet another in a long and distinguished line of visitors to Buckland that stretch back to the 11th century and the time of William the Conqueror. The original manor house was granted to Richard de Filliegh. He had shown great bravery in battle and save William from potentially deadly arrows three times.
You don’t need to be brave to stay here
You can simply enjoy the library, snooker and drawing rooms or cater for yourself in the well-equipped kitchens. All you need to do is gather up your party and make a date for the 25th April. Enjoy a long weekend and celebrate the return of spring. You will also be doing your bit to support Devon this year. More details about Buckland House can be found here
