Cook's suite is a stunning large ground floor apartment set within the old Victorian kitchens of a grade II listed country house, enjoying its own large private outdoor space. The house is situated on the outskirts of the historic port town of Bideford in the beautiful north Devon countryside near the coast at Westward Ho! The apartment boasts stylish period features with every modern luxury and convenience. Perfect for families, pet friendly, and an ideal base to explore the many attractions of North Devon.

This suite has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a private enclosed courtyard with firepit, sheltered outdoor seating and BBQ dining area. There is dedicated off-street parking, right outside the entrance, and the apartment is all on ground-floor level, with easy and level access throughout. The main room is a large (45m2) open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge room, with a range cooker built into the old Victorian kitchen fireplaces, traditional butler sink, oak surfaces, farmhouse table and dresser. There is comfy leather seating around a 55" smart TV, with high-speed WiFI and blu ray but also a selection of family games and puzzles.

The master bedroom has a superking sized four-poster bed, with optional daybed, or space for a toddler bed or cot. Period features include large fireplaces, and the ensuite bathroom has roll top bath, separate walk-in shower, underfloor heating and heated towel rail. The second bedroom can be set up as a second master with superking bed, or as a twin with two singles. A second bathroom has a walk in shower and traditional style washstand sink.

Pets are welcomed, and both two-and four-legged guests have free run of 5 acres of mature landscaped gardens, with hidden BBQ areas, gazebo, carved animals, fire circles, seating, picnic spots, play equipment, mud kitchen, hobbit house, swings and slides, all set among mature trees and a peaceful traffic-free setting that belie its convenient location just 5 minutes from the centre of town. There is an indoor play room for children, and access to function rooms, billiard rooms and private dining rooms can be arranged for those special occasions.

Bideford is known as the "little white town", 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, the house is ideally placed to enjoy all the varied attractions of North Devon. Situated within a half mile of the A39 Atlantic highway, there is easy access from major driving routes and onward excursions to the North Cornwall coast, meaning you don't have to navigate those tiny country lanes unless you want to.

Additional accommodation (a single extra room by the night or adjoining apartments for other families to join), private dining or function rooms can be booked by arrangement. Store room and workshop available for surf-boards and bikes, with some available to borrow. Well behaved pets are welcome. Concierge and catering services available.

Holiday accommodation can be booked year round for either a weekend break, a short break during the week, a full week or more.

A brilliant place to stay

By Annie and Mike on 07-Sep-2020

Moreton House is special. The apartment we stayed in had been beautifully renovated and was a lovely space to be in and relax. It was well equipped and the beds and sofas were very comfortable. Moreton House is up a drive away from the road and as a result was very peaceful. We had the use of a lovely courtyard as our personal outdoor space but also enjoyed wandering around the beautiful grounds. Helen and Harvey were great - there to welcome you on arrival, on hand to help if needed anything but otherwise invisible. They seemed to have thought about everything, including a cold beer and cream tea for us in the fridge. The apartment was immaculately clean and we felt completely safe given the current Covid environment.

A week in a country house

By Bryan and Jenni Portman on 26-Jul-2020

We had a fabulous visit to Moreton House. Our accommodation At The Cook’s Suite was superb. Spacious with a perfect mixture of new and traditional styles which gave a wow! factor as soon as you arrived. The courtyard was also large and spacious and for our own use and we enjoyed BBQ’s and the use of the ‘fire pit’ on cool evenings. Very special. The owners were warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They clearly are proud of what they have created at Moreton House and justly so. Highly recommended!
