Description

Lovely bright and cosy two-bedroom apartment set within a grade II listed country house. Moreton House lies on the outskirts of Bideford in the beautiful north Devon countryside near the coast at Westward Ho! Offering stylish period features yet all modern luxuries and conveniences, the Buck suite provides ideal family accommodation in a well-equipped self-catering holiday home.

Both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, with baths and showers, with an additional guest WC. The master suite has a king-size bed, a luxurious roll-top bath and a huge walk-in shower. The second bedroom has a double and single bed, giving lots of flexibility, and space to spare, making it an ideal family room. Additional cot or toddler bed available of request. The lounge has a wood-burning stove to supplement central heating and bathroom underfloor heating, and a large breakfast bar separates it from the well-equipped practical kitchen. Attractive period features throughout, but also with modern conveniences, such as huge 55" smart TV, USB charging points and wifi throughout.

Guests have free run of five acres of mature landscaped gardens with hidden BBQ areas, a gazebo, carved animals, fire circles, seating, picnic spots, play equipment, mud kitchen, hobbit house, swings and slides, all set in a peaceful traffic-free setting that belies its convenient location just 5 minutes from the centre of Bideford or the beach at Westward Ho! There are views from the Buck Suite over the fields to the cliffs above Westward Ho! There are bikes, body and paddle boards, beach equipment, toys and games to borrow, as well as storage, wash-down and workshop space for your own bikes or boards. The house also boasts a wealth of shared amenities including an indoor children’s play room with soft-play equipment, table football and trampoline.

For a special occasion, function rooms, private dining rooms, billiard room and private dining can be arranged. Additional accommodation can be added, either an extra room for a night, or a whole addtional apartment for friends or another part of the family. Concierge and catering services available.

Bideford is nestled on the Torridge estuary with its charming mediaeval bridge, quayside shops and cafes, and regular ferry service to Lundy island. Just minutes from Appledore Village, surfing at Westward Ho!, the Southwest coast path, Tarka trail cycling and walking route; a short drive to Clovelly, the dramatic Hartland Peninsula and the beaches of Saunton and Croyde, and with easy access to Dartmoor or Exmoor, we are ideally placed to enjoy all the varied attractions of North Devon. We are within a half mile of the A39 Atlantic highway, giving easy access from major driving routes and onward excursions to the North Cornwall coast.

The Buck Suite is accessible via stairs and does not allow pets. For accessible and pet-friendly options please see our ground floor options.

Our holiday accommodation can now be booked year round for either a weekend break, a short break during the week, or consecutive weekend and weekday slots to make a full week or more.

Our changeover days will be Thursdays and Mondays.
Weekend slots run Thursday evening to Monday morning. You may of course check in anytime on a Friday if preferred, and leave on a Sunday afternoon or evening.
Weekday slots run from Monday afternoon to Thursday morning. This allows a budget short break option for those not tied to weekends.

​To book a standard week, you can choose Monday to Monday or Thursday to Thursday. The price for a week is a little less than a weekend plus a weekday slot.

To book a premium week, with accommodation over both weekends, you can book a premium 10 night slot.

​These changes may seem a little at odds with the large holiday companies, offering weekly stays starting on Fridays or Saturdays. This is not an accident. We have found that many of our visitors have had difficult and long journeys on standard changeover days, and often our guests have preferred making their journeys on quieter days. In addition, the pandemic has affected the seasonal workforce quite severely, making it very difficult to find staff for busy standard changeover days. We have therefore taken the decision to set a different weekly timetable, that will also allow us to run our weekend weddings and functions throughout the season.

Moreton House

By Olivia Ingham on 29-May-2021

My husband and I and our two young daughters stayed at Moreton House for a week over half term. We had the most wonderful week here. The apartment we stayed in was first class - beautifully decorated and furnished and extremely comfortable. The kitchen was extremely well-equipped; so much thought had gone into the apartment to ensure our every need was met and to ensure we had the best possible accommodation experience. Outside of the apartment and in the building or its grounds, my children were very well entertained on swings, a mud kitchen, large lawns to run on, a great area for scooters/cycling, very large paddling pool, croquet, very large indoor trampoline, soft play area.... Heaven for children and a rest for parents! The owners, Harvey and Helen, were such kind and thoughtful people who go out of their way to ensure you are happy. The surrounding areas are full of activities and lovely things to do - coastal walks, beautiful sandy and pebbly beaches, National Trust places of interest (Hartland Abbey), fun children's activities (The Big Sheep is wonderful!) and fun restaurants and pubs. We loved exploring different places each day. North Devon is beautiful. Highly recommend.

If Georgian/ Victorian elegance is your thing do stay here!

By Diana S on 09-Aug-2019

This stunning apartment is one of several in the Victorian wing of a beautiful Georgian/Victorian mansion being lovingly restored by Helen and Harvey Phillips. The property stands in five acres of grounds, mostly laid to lawn but with some beautiful trees and plenty of interesting places for children to play and explore. Helen and Harvey's enthusiasm for their project is infectious and their friendly, warm approach makes for a most enjoyable stay. Everything you need is here - the kitchen is incredibly well equipped, the rooms, large and airy and the beds very comfortable. The modern decor stays true to the property's Victorian origins with alterations imaginatively done to create the perfect place for a peaceful getaway.

Casual luxury

By AW on 10-Mar-2019

Stayed here for New Year. Marvellous setting. Apartments finished to a very high standard. Our son loved the softplay and adventure gardens. Most comfortable bed ever. Highly recommended for a weekend away. The hosts were so attentive and keen to make our experience enjoyable. We’ll go again, just wish it was closer to Edinburgh.
