Set back from the old Barnstaple to Bideford road, in between the villages of Bickington and Fremington, Muddlebridge is accessed by good, fast roads in just 45 minutes from Junction 27 of the M5.

The oldest parts of Muddlebridge House are believed to be one of several small local potteries, some of which existed well into the twentieth century. A major extension was added to the original building in the late 18th century, at the same time as two stone stable blocks and a carriage barn/hay store. The stables and barn have been innovatively converted to form the cottages, each self-contained with its own unique character and interior layout.

Facilities include: indoor swimming-pool; sauna cabin; over two acres of safe, enclosed gardens, mainly grassed; extensive children's outdoor play-area ; pets' corner; two games' rooms offering table-tennis, table football and pool-table.

Our excellent location provides easy access to superb sandy beaches, local walks, open moorland (especially Exmoor), craft centres, historical sites, gardens, museums, sports facilities and a wide range of tourist attractions catering for all ages. Less than half a mile away are local shops and pubs. Within a five minute drive are a major supermarket and a selection of restaurants and take-aways, while the town centre shops, cinema and theatre of Barnstaple are only slightly further. The Tarka Trail, incorporating the West country Way cycle route, passes 800 yards away at the restored Fremington Quay (with heritage centre and cafe) on the estuary of the tidal River Taw.
