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 Cook's Suite has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a private courtyard with sheltered outdoor seating and BBQ dining area. There is dedicated off-street parking, and the apartment is all on ground-floor level, with easy and level access. 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, and comfy seating area, yet all with modern comforts such as high-speed WiFi, smart TVs, large retro fridge freezer, central heating and ensuite bathrooms.
The master bedroom has a superking sized four-poster bed, with space for an additional daybed, 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.
The apartment has access to a sheltered courtyard, with BBQ area and seating. There is also an indoor children’s play room and library with soft-play equipment and trampoline, 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 Bideford or the beach at Westward Ho!
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, 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. Store room and workshop available for surf-boards and bikes, with some available to borrow. Wheelchair access is possible. Well behaved pets are welcome. Concierge and catering services available.
