Buckland House stands impressively in the North Devon countryside, solid and timeless it welcomes its guests. Sleeping up to 30 in 17 bedrooms we offer friendly and relaxed accommodation for large groups with space to spread out or party in style. The presence of grandness mingles comfortably in a house that feels like home.
There are 280 acres of grounds, mostly woodlands, a lake and well kept lawns and gardens. A swimming pool, not heated I'm afraid but an option for the warmer weather. In the woods there are roe deer, sometimes red deer travel through, and plenty of other wildlife live there.
Coarse fishing in the lake is popular, there are carp, roach and tench. A small rowing boat for anyone to use is tied up in the boathouse. The grasslands around the lake are cut late in the summer to encourage wild flowers so in earlier months there are wildflower meadows with cut paths to walk on around the woods and fields.
In the winter the house is warmed by wood from our woodlands. Our wood boiler burns logs to provide central heating, it combines the primitive art of burning a log on a fire with the high tech world of controlling the heat so none is wasted and all goes to warm the house with renewable energy.
We have a civil wedding venue licence and can take parties of up to 80 guests. With exclusive use of the house and grounds for the weekend you have the freedom to plan your day as you want it. No curfews, corkage or restrictions within reason, all we ask is that music is not played outside after 11pm and that the house and grounds are treated like your own home.
