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.

Weddings

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.

Reviews

  • We were delighted to be able to enjoy a weekend anniversary party at wonderful Buckland House. Such an interesting and exciting venue. Thanks to all involved.

  • Absolutely wonderful venue set in lovely surroundings. There's so much to do and explore and with everything you will ever need. Thanks for a great stay!

  • My friends got married there 2 years ago... They had the place for a week from Wednesday to Wednesday... It was rather lovely....! M x

  • 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 .

  • Me and my mate Sean did a show there some years ago now for some guests a beautiful place

  • Was there for a wedding with family and friends fantastic week great kitchen dining and hidden lounges would stay again in a heart beat

  • We had our wedding here in 2006 it was an amazing house to spend a week, our guests loved it!

  • We stayed for my 50th Birthday, A wonderful setting for such an occasion. We all had a great time, thanks.

  • We had the most amazing weekend with friends in this beautiful country mansion which takes you back in time - the grounds are extensive and the kitchen - dining room - galleried ballroom - library - billiard room - all the different bedrooms - hidden passages - our 16 year old boys discovered many hidden parts to this house - it was like an Enid Blyton novel - 16 folks from Essex do ‘Most Haunted’ would love to relive our party weekend again - never forget this place - thank you x

  • 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!!
