Buckland House is a Georgian country house in the most relaxed and welcoming of styles. It’ssuitable for parties of family or friends, weddings, special celebrations, reunions, or corporate or business use.

Buckland is a big, grand and beautiful house, sleeping 30 in 17 bedrooms with 9 bathrooms. The house 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.

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.

The house is set within289 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.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“Buckland is one of my favourites of our houses, and the one at which I’ve spent the most time. It really is a generous house, light-filled and seemingly perfect for a party, no matter what the time of year. It’s most stand-out attribute is its atmosphere and sense of timelessness. Some sun-lit summer evenings, it could easily be any time this century, or the last.”

About the Location

Buckland is in North Devon, just inland and between the seaside towns of Bideford and Bude. The house is about twenty-five minutes’ drive from the A 39.

Things To Do

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 allows a maximum of 120 guests at a wedding, and has a list of local B&B’s for guests that cannot fit in the house. There is also an allowance for seven tents, for guests wishing to camp, and two yurts (crafted on the estate) for campers who might need a proper bed.

Buckland also has its own very special ‘boat marquee’, crafted from wood sourced on the estate, available for a small charge.

I can't really explain just how magical Buckland House is but I am going to try! From our very first emails, the initial viewings, the booking, and then right through to the wedding weekend itself: Tammy, Suzanne and Ralph have been absolutely wonderful. In England, you just cannot rely on the weather, so we were very keen to have a venue which was all about the interior space. We accidently found Buckland House while researching rentable holiday homes as opposed to wedding venues! It could sleep 30 of our guests, was exclusively yours for the entire weekend, had no curfew, no corkage, and had a wedding licence too. It meant we could build our wedding exactly how we wanted it, and have our ceremony and reception all in one place, cutting out transportation: A shabby chic DIY dream! The moment I saw photos, I fell in love and made arrangements to view it immediately. Suffice to say, the visit blew us away! It was like being in a National Trust house but with zero restrictions. The interior space is huge, and it is so impressive inside that not a lot of decoration was needed. There was plenty of room should the weather be horrible all weekend (which it was, although thankfully we had a few breaks in the rain and could get out for photos). It is also surrounded by 280 acres of gorgeous grounds (some of which we adorned with a flock of retro lawn flamingos), so had the weather ended up being amazing, it would have been an added bonus rather the focus of our day. Buckland served as a fantastic base from which to host a whole weekends worth of celebrations in the Devon countryside and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. We only spent 4 days there, but miss it so much!!

Beautiful building lots of character far to many to list if you use your imagination you could sit in a room and go back 500 years ago the feeling would be immense, the garden and the shrubs plus the boating lake, a fortnights holiday would not be long enough to take it all in .

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.

House History

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
