Buckland House stands impressively in the North Devon countryside, solid and timeless it welcomes its guests. Inside, despite their size, the rooms are friendly and relaxing with the 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 also have another property available to hire for self catered group accomodation. For more information visit Northmoor House.
