Clinton Devon Estates is a family business, responsible for the stewardship of some of the most beautiful surroundings in Devon.
The Clinton Barony is one of the oldest in England. Formed in 1299, today Clinton Devon Estates owns and manages 25,000 acres of land across three separate Estates in Devon.
These are the Heanton Estate in North Devon and the Beer and Clinton Estates in East Devon and including a major part of the East Devon Pebblebed Heaths.
In addition to farming and forestry, the Estate operates a range of rural businesses and a portfolio of residential and commercial property. The Estates have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise three times and is a Sunday Times Top 100 Company to work for.
As stewards of Clinton Devon Estates it is our responsibility to care for our land, property and the natural environment. Our aim is to pass the Estate on in a better condition than that we inherited from previous generations.
It is our pledge to ensure that we do today what is right for tomorrow and our 2030 Strategy explains how we intend to fulfil this pledge.
