Wisteria-clad manor in the heart of north Devon

A long driveway climbs up through 20 acres of grounds to wisteria-clad Northcote Manor – a handsome Georgian country house in an idyllic setting surrounded by woodland and lawns.

  • Outstanding cooking from Richie Herkes and his brigade
  • Stunning views of Exmoor from the rear
  • True country house cossetting.

Tucked into a wooded hillside near Barnstaple.

There's a croquet lawn, tennis courts and 20 acres of grounds to wander through. There's also a therapist on call for in-room aromatherapy and beauty treatments.

Good to know
This pleasing country house is not without touches of shabby chic.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
Northcote Manor's restaurant is strikingly muralled with a huge painting depicting its recent history. During the evening it’s aglow with candlelight. Look forward to a great selection of modern English dishes: pavé of Cornish crab, local Aylesbury duckling and fresh blueberry tartlet. There's a great selection of dessert wines, too.

Served until 10am. The range of cooked options includes a full English, kippers or smoked haddock .

Room service
Available morning and evening.


See & Do
Take to the hills on Exmoor and Dartmoor, or for more cultivated greenery spend a sunny afternoon admiring the RHS Rosemoor Gardens. Riding, fishing and golfing are easily arranged, while Exeter and Bideford are great places for a day out. Exeter has some lively bars and cafes around the old quayside, and a fine cathedral.

Reception can arrange for a local therapist to provide a range of in-room treatments.
