Moreton House is a grade II listed country house on the outskirts of Bideford in the beautiful north Devon countryside near the coast at Westward Ho! The house has undergone a major refurbishment after half a decade as a boarding school, and this season we are opening our doors to holidaymakers for the first time, offering the opportunity to stay in this stunning historic location, with free run of the landscaped grounds. Guests can now choose from a selection of newly renovated self-contained luxurious apartments, accommodating families or groups requiring anything from 1 to 7 bedrooms.
The Buck Suite is a cozy, bright and airy two-bedroom apartment on the first floor. Both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, with baths and showers, with an additional guest WC. The master has a superking-size bed, and the second bedroom has a double and single with room to spare, making it an ideal family room. Additional cot or toddler bed available of request. The lounge has a wood-burning stove for the cooler evenings, and a large breakfast bar separates it from the well-equipped practical kitchen. There is a wealth of period features, yet all modern conveniences, so you can enjoy a roll-top bath with the comfort of underfloor heating.
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! We have 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 and library with soft-play equipment, table football and trampoline, and for grown-ups a club room with snooker or billiards.
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.
Additional accommodation, private dining or function rooms can be booked by arrangement. Concierge and catering services available. The Buck Suite is accessible via stairs and does not allow pets. For accessible and pet-friendly options please see our ground floor options.

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.

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.
