Buckland House is a big, grand and beautiful house, sleeping 34 in 17 bedrooms with 9 bathrooms. The house is let on a self-catering basis and has 7 doubles, 5 twin singles and 3 singles, with options for a few more in extra beds by negotiation. Most of the bathrooms have roll-top baths and two have showers.

Buckland sits in 289 acres of parkland, farm land and woods, and has terraces and a swimming pool next to the house. There is also a lake, with rowing boat and lots of fish (carp, roach, tench), plus skeet shooting and croquet lawn. Roe deer are regularly seen in the parkland.

The Manor House dates to the time of William the Conqueror, in 1066, and was given to one of William’s returning soldiers, Richard de Filleigh. Richard had used his shield to save William from arrows on three occasions, and for this reason he was called Fortescue (Fort = Strong, Escue = Shield), and Buckland House was built in the shape of an F

There is a ball room for dancing, dining room, sitting rooms, library, snooker room, drawing room, breakfast room and play room. The house is heated by an industrial wood-burning boiler and wood is sourced from the estate.

The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, cooking utensils and an ample amount of crockery and cutlery for 30 guests. To cook on there is an Aga and a large 6 ring gas cooker, the pantry has plenty of shelf space, 2 fridge freezers and one full height fridge.

Should you ever wish to leave the estate, there is plenty to do in the area. The house is between the North and South Devon coasts, and is a great base from which to explore Devon and Cornwall.

Buckland House is suitable for parties of family or friends, weddings, special celebrations, reunions, or corporate or business use.

For parties and weddings we have a maximum of 120 guests. There is a charge for guests over the 27 staying in the house of £12.50 per person. If you are having a larger number of guests there is vintage crockery and silver plate cutlery available to hire.

It was a fantastic site when arriving and you start walking around the inside in amazement it's fantastic but once you have settled in you realise it needs a lot work doing and on winter very cold.

Brilliant location very well maintained with such interesting furnishings and books the walk options in the woodlands and the drives in the countryside are further incentives should you be looking!

Delightful venue for any big celebration ie wedding etc - the only reason l gave 4 star instead of 5 as that our particular wedding was in February so it was jolly chilly and the heating seemed a little inadequate !!

Buckland House is a splendid property on many levels - its majesty, number of bedrooms and its price per person. It has two dining rooms, two large sitting rooms, two games rooms (table tennis, billiards) and a ballroom. Outside there is a swimming pool (perhaps not for January use), a lake and 200 acres of countryside to run around in without disturbing the neighbours. The upstairs accommodation consists of decent sized bedrooms, some enormous, and a range of bathrooms that are fit for purpose. They are not modern with spotlights, underfloor heating and similar but are clean and homely. The owners live nearby and are easy going and spend a lot of time, as you would expect, keeping the house going. The odd bit of plaster is missing and the odd window frame drafty but I do not think any but the most demanding guests could take issue. One of the best houses I know of that sleeps 26+ and a super venue for your big event. Floor plans. From the website; On the first floor there are 15 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. 2 bedrooms have double 4 poster beds and another has a single 4 poster bed. Of the rest there are 5 with double beds and 5 with twin singles and 2 with single beds. Many of the bedrooms have coal effect fires and one has a study and another a large nursery with 2 cots. Five of the bedrooms have Victorian ball and claw baths, 2 with normal baths and 2 with showers.
