Self catering holiday cottages in Uplowman, Devon, England

Facts about Uplowman for Cottage Holidays


The village supports its own school and has a church that was built around 1500, the benefactor being none other than Margaret Beaufort, Countess of Richmond, mother to Henry VII and paternal grandmother of King Henry VIII.  Another famous lady with links to Uplowman was Joyce Wethered. She was the last family member to inhabit Knighthayes Court, a nearby gothic Victorian Manor, built by Tiverton lace industrialists the Heathcoat-Amory family, and now run by the National Trust. Joyce Wethered, who became a world championship golfer and a noted gardener, was the wife of Sir John Heathcoat-Amory.  The house and its magnificent gardens are open most weeks of the year and are a recommended place to visit.
