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 Bakehouse provides the perfect getaway for two. A cosy spot offering a queen bedroom with luxurious ensuite shower room plus a gorgeous and quirky kitchen designed around the original old Victorian bread ovens. A dedicated decking area with comfy seating right outside provides a real sun trap allowing you to enjoy sun-up or sun-down, depending on your body clock. A windowseat breakfast bar, farmhouse table and your own BBQ and outdoor dining set give plenty of eating options or space to get out the laptop. You'll have direct access to the gardens and your own parking space. Perfect for a romantic mini-moon or a bit of comfort and refreshment at the end of a day of adventure on the water, or the biking or hiking trails that lie within easy reach of Moreton.

Despite this being a simple suite for two, you needn't be short of space, with communal amenity rooms, including a club room with snooker or billiards, and 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.

The suite can be booked alone, or in combination with other apartments to give an additional bedroom with a little extra independence. Contact us for combination pricing. Private dining or function rooms can be booked by arrangement. Store room, wash down area and workshop available for surf-boards and bikes, with some available for guests to borrow. Wheelchair access is possible. Well behaved pets are welcome. Concierge and catering services available.


Our week at Moreton House

By Jane Waring on 05-Sep-2020

The Bakehouse Suite is a smart and very well equipped apartment about 40 minutes walk from Abbotsham Cliffs and the South West Coastal Path. It has extensive and very attractive grounds. We were greeted on arrival by Harvey who gave us a brief tour of the accommodation. The owners had left us a welcome gift of cider, beer and a cream tea, plus a vase full of gorgeous roses, lilies and sunflowers, which was a lovely touch! It’s clear that a great deal of thought has gone into the decor and equipment, this is especially the case in the kitchen, which has all mod cons & a great selection of cooking utensils. The wet room is fab and the bed was very comfortable. I normally hate pillows on holiday, but these were great!
We went as a couple, but Moreton House would also be a very good place to stay if several families or groups of friends wanted to stay somewhere together, as there are various different sized apartments. During the week we needed to ask a couple of technical questions and Helen’s response was quick and friendly every time. Moreton House is located up a long drive, so it’s beautifully quiet. However, as the driveway comes out onto a road with no pavements, walking anywhere locally is tricky and it’s only really possible to get anywhere by car,. We found one walk that leads to the cliffs via a country lane directly opposite the drive. Having said that, there’s plenty to see just a short drive away and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. One minor caveat was the outside seating area, which isn’t very private or attractive, as it is right next to the designated parking places, so we were sitting next to our parked car. I’m sure that can be remedied with some trellis and climbing plants to make a screen. It certainly didn’t spoil our stay.

There’s still a huge amount of work to be done on the property, but if it’s all done with the same attention to detail and extra touches as the Bakehouse, I think Helen & Harvey will find plenty of takers!

Dreamy Devon

By Mr & Mrs Billington on 10-Aug-2020

We had the most wonderful time in Devon.
The apartment was so well decorated and comfortable to stay in. It was great that we was able to bring our dog too. We had a lovely private outdoor area and enjoyed exploring the garden.
The owners were lovely and had thought of everything, and were even sweet enough to provide our dog with a couple of blankets!
The apartments are near plenty of wonderful beaches and places to eat.
We look forward to staying here again.

What a treat to stay here....beautifully and sympathetically renovated apartments with great attention to detail and luxurious finishes. Also has great spaces to relax, meet up with friends, have afternoon tea etc. Helen and Harvey are the ultimate hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough !!!

Moreton Marvellous

By JaniceR1192 on 31-Oct-2019

Harvey and Helen were very welcoming and relaxed hosts , we were greeted with a cup of tea and shown round the house which is progressing fabulously ( think escape to the chateau but English ) . We arrived with our slightly batty Weimaraner who immediately took off like a race horse around the extensive grounds , making me feel guilty that he didn’t have this at home !! We then decanted to our suite which was fabulous , top notch finish and immaculate . They were in the process of finishing another suite and informed us that they were planning on introducing residential cookery courses , hence the extensive kitchens in the suites . They also told us they were planning to host weddings and corporate events , which the house would be fabulous for .
Thoroughly enjoyable and comfortable stay would highly recommend .

Amazing place to stay

By SCA2301 on 28-Oct-2019

We were very pleased with the authentic and refreshing renovation to Moreton House accommodation. First rate facilities with an excellent finish. The individual apartments are well spaced when quiet contemplation is required, but close enough to enjoy a large gathering of friends which brings the house back to life.
