Green House Vegetarian Bed and Breakfast


Due to extra work commitments Green House BnB is now closed. We hope to re-open in Summer 2018, please check back again then.

"It was a really lovely stay, felt like being at home thanks to a very relaxing atmosphere, really friendly and genuinely interested and interesting hosts. Delicious original and varied well-prepared healthy breakfasts – thank you!"

Where is Green House?
Green House vegetarian bed and breakfast is situated in the market town and historic port of Bideford in North Devon, in the South West of Great Britain. Bideford is set on the tidal river Torridge and is 3 miles away from Westward Ho! beach.
Green House is an 1850's stone built detached property in a quiet, residential area. The house is in a small traffic-free lane (which is Torridge Street!) Only pedestrians go past the house and the lane is used by locals on their way to and from town. There is a guest parking space outside the house. We are an easy and enjoyable 5 minute walk from the town centre and all its amenities.

At Green House we have one double guest room with an en-suite shower room and a VW Campervan tent for children (under 15) to sleep in during the school Summer holidays. Our guests enjoy free wireless broadband during their stay. Our decked garden is available for guests to use. We are a non-smoking, vegetarian (pescetarian) household and implement green practices.

Friendly and welcoming
We are friendly and welcoming, so you can relax but also have your own independence during your stay with us. You can holiday at your own pace and come and go as you please. If you wish to chat to us over a cup of tea, or over breakfast then we are always happy to talk to you about the area and suggest places to visit. If you want to have a quiet, private breakfast then we will respect your wishes and privacy.

Vegetarian food
At Green House we offer an exclusively vegetarian and vegan breakfast menu. Our breakfasts satisfy all our hungry guests, vegetarian and non-vegetarian alike. We enjoy preparing special breakfasts to accommodate dietary needs and preferences. Our menu features home-made bread and pancakes, locally made jams and preserves, free-range eggs, soy products, a variety of teas, organic coffee and always locally sourced food wherever possible. If you're an occasional vege, what the press have coined a 'flexitarian', this is a great way of trying out some new breakfasts.

River views, walking and cycling, the coast
Green House is close to the river Torridge and the guest room has a view of the river. We are virtually on the Tarka Trail, a wonderful traffic-free cycle and walking trail that runs for miles in both directions. Cycling Devon's Coast to Coast is very popular and we provide a safe and secure place for bicycles. Hiking is possible from the front door, with trails leading to the coast and inland. There are numerous day-hikes that can be done using public transport from the town centre. Westward Ho! and Instow beach are our local beaches and are both only 3 miles away a short scenic bus ride or a healthy one hour hike.

We are happy to make suggestions for places to visit, see, eat vegetarian or vegan food, devour the best Devon cream tea, have dinner or enjoy a local ale in a traditional English pub.
