We all missed out on a proper family Christmas and New Year celebration last year. So why not make up for it this time around? Treat your family to a festive week in our cosy, homely and luxurious self-catering suites near the beautiful north Devon coast. Five bedrooms, all ensuite, plus large kitchen, dining and lounge spaces, perfect to get the whole family together around one large festive table. Offered for 7 nights from 22 December for a Christmas break, or 29th December for a New Year celebration. Both options available at a £1000 saving on our list price, now £3950 (including VAT).
The offer includes our three ground floor self-catering suites - ideal for extended family groups. Separated into three adjoining apartments (our Bakehouse studio, Housekeeper's 2 bedroom suite and Cook's 2 bedroom suite) the accommodation can be opened up to work in combination, with large lounge and dining spaces to gather everyone together. Each guest room has its own bathroom, and a unique feature, giving something to suit everyone - a roll-top bath, four-poster bed, wood-burner or wet room shower.
Each apartment comes festively trimmed, with a locally grown tree, table centre, wreath and lights. All newly renovated, they combine elegant timeless design showcasing the period features, but full of modern comforts - wifi, smart TVs, plenty of charging points. We welcome children, and offer a good supply of traditional family games and puzzles. Our fully equipped kitchens, complete with range cookers, baking supplies, and everything you need to cook up a festive feast, are all open plan so meal preparation doesn't have to be done in isolation. Cook only as much as you want to, however, with bakery and deli treats, chef-prepared ready meals and meal kits available (for an additional charge).
Our accommodation is set in peaceful stately home surroundings within mature tree-lined gardens, just minutes from the beach. The apartments surround a communal open courtyard with outdoor dining space, firepit and BBQ. Direct access to private mature gardens, and secret garden firepit. Easy access to shopping, driving routes, and the small historic port town of Bideford.
Reserve with confidence and enjoy our full refund guarantee if government lockdowns were to be reintroduced. Concierge and catering services available to take the work and worries away. Fully equipped home from home with masses of space, and farm shop and local deli produce hampers and deliveries available.
Please enquire about options for pets, and for different size groups. Additional bedrooms available by the night for extra guests joining the festivities for Christmas day or New Year's eve.

Moreton House is a grade-II listed Georgian estate house on the outskirts of Bideford in North Devon. The Buck-Stucley family, who have owned land around Hartland and North Devon for centuries, built and lived at Moreton until it was commandeered for use as a school during the second world war.
Shortly after the war, Moreton and the surrounding estate became home to Grenville College boarding school, and remained so for more than half a century. But when the school moved on and merged with Kingsley school in 2009, the property was divided up and sold. After national publicity surrounding its sale, the house and five acres of the original grounds are in family ownership once again.
The current owners have spent 6 years lovingly renovating and restoring the house, hoping to develop a business that can provide a sustainable future for Moreton. Catering for the local community and visitors from further afield, the house currently offers four luxurious holiday lettings apartments and four large function rooms which are offered along with the accommodation for boutique weddings, private events, parties, meetings and workshops, as well as garden spaces.
The house is within easy reach of the coast at Westward Ho!, the southwest coast path and the lovely fishing village of Appledore. Clovelly is a 15 minute drive, north Cornwall less than 30 minutes, Tintagel an hour. The beaches of Woolacombe, Saunton Sands, Croyde and Putsborough are around half and hour away, and Dartmoor and Exmoor easily accessible.
Lying just off the main north Devon link road, we can be found less than an hour from the M5 at junction 27, and three and half hours from Heathrow.
