Moreton House is a Georgian stately home on the outskirts of Bideford, near the beautiful North Devon Coast. We are family-owned and run, and offer a destination-style venue with elegant function rooms and lovely grounds for your exclusive use. Moreton offers a licensed venue with a choice of indoor and outdoor ceremony spaces, dining room, party room with bar, quiet lounge, a feature staircase and luxurious on-site accommodation.

Our venue is suitable for to up to 70 guests for ceremony and dining, and 100 for an evening reception. We also offer a mix of self-catering suites, a stunning new honeymoon suite, and a mix of guest bedrooms for different styles and budgets to accommodate a total of around 30 overnight guests. The wealth of period features and five acres of mature tree-lined gardens provide a host of photo opportunities and picturesque getting-ready spaces.

The venue is stately yet still homely, and the accommodation allows couples to make it theirs for a long weekend, with chance to really enjoy the time with family and friends. Enjoy an evening BBQ in our secret garden with gazebo and fire circle the evening before your wedding, or a casual brunch in our large and sheltered courtyard on the morning after.

The location and grounds on the edge of the ancient maritime town of Bideford, just minutes from the beach, make it feel like you’re in the depths of the countryside, yet we are just an hour from the M5, and easily accessible (no narrow country lanes unless you want to go exploring).

Catering kitchen facilities are included, to allow the couple’s choice of caterer to work on-site, or packages are available with an award-winning partner caterer, The Royal George of Appledore. Options can be tailored exactly to your needs, from day hire, intimate and elopement weddings through to fully bespoke packages.
