Welcome to Tapeley Park Gardens

Located in the parish of Westleigh, Tapeley Park sits high on a hill overlooking the River Torridge and the North Devon coastline. Home to the Christie family for two centuries, Hector Christie is the current custodian of the estate.

Tapeley Park is located between Bideford and Barnstaple, near the village of Instow.  Visitors can follow brown tourist signs from the A39 onto the B3233 (please note if you use the post code in Sat Nav you will be directed to the incorrect entrance).  The Tapeley Garden entrance is just beyond the turning sign posted to Westleigh Village, coming from the Bideford direction.

Tapeley Park
Tapeley is very popular with dogs! We have oodles of space to enjoy, lots of weird and wonderful scents to sniff and different landscapes to explore. Whether it's a pootle around the terraced gardens or a bit more of a walk to the Monument to admire the sea views, all paths tend to start with a doggie treat in the gift shop (from Tina) and end at the Tea rooms where owners get to sit! *Thanks to Ariella and Zula for taking a moment to pose! #dogfriendly #northdevon #ornamentalgardens #tearooms #walkies #summerholiday ...
