Beaconside Accommodation

We offer you 25 acres of private land and accommodation to suit you and your guests' requirements including disabled-friendly properties...And if you'd like to bring your pet along, that's fine with us!  

We are extremely privileged to be located in one of the most beautiful locations in North Devon and strive to provide a responsible and sustainable relationship within our surroundings. To this effect, we operate an environmentally friendly, state of the art biomass heating system burning recycled wood pellets to provide all hot water and central heating for the estate properties and our heated indoor swimming pool.

During your stay at Beaconside, enjoy exclusive access to our extensive array of facilities including two fabulous swimming pools (indoor and outdoor), bubbling hot tubs and the many relaxing areas within the grounds to walk, explore or simply sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet whilst soaking up the beautiful views. Extensive grounds, mature gardens and ancient woodland will be yours to explore.  There is a private terraced area with BBQ and seating for up to 18 people and many intimate areas perfect for picnics or escaping with a good book. Beaconside also boasts a grass tennis court and croquet lawn as well as a privately-accessed fishing bank on the River Torridge although two miles inland from it’s still within the sea fishing area with the odd sea trout to be found within the waters. With no licence needed. Children are exceptionally well catered for with an outdoor play area, including wooden climbing frame and a 14 ft trampoline!

Beaconside Country Estate is just a five minute drive from the picturesque Medieval port town of Bideford and only a short hop to North Devon’s' famous Blue Flag beach Westward Ho! with its two mile stretch of sandy beach and infamous pebble ridge perfect for a family day out for a spot of surfing or sitting back and enjoying a traditional English cream tea. Also, right on our doorstep, is the wonderfully quaint fishing village of Appledore and on the opposite side of the estuary, the Regency ‘coastal resort’ of Instow. There is so much to see and do!  Located on the side of the manor house is our games room, with pool, snooker table tennis and darts. You will also find our local tourist information section, some provide excellent discounts and is handy for you to help plan your perfect get away for everyone.

Bookings start from 3 pm on the day of arrival with departure by 10 am on the morning od departure. We can at times offer flexibility with mid-week breaks (depending upon availability).

If your guests are paying independently for their accommodation the cost per person equates to just £32 per person per night!  On this basis you would recoup a total of £3,850 off the total price of your wedding.
