History of the hotel
It was in 1879 that William Moore, a prominent architect and builder from Exeter built the impressive mansion from stone quarried from within the estate.
Highbullen is a fine example of the architecture that emerged from the "Arts and Crafts" movement. It is easy to see the influence of Philip Webb, who is often referred to as the father of the "Arts and Crafts" architecture. The solid, well proportioned forms, steep roofs and deep porches of Highbullen are all typical of Webb's style and the intriguing marble fireplace in the drawing room is of particular note. Highbullen remained the Moore family's home for over 40 years.
Jumping forward to World War Two a new and exciting chapter opened in Highbullen's history. The substantial ground floor rooms became classrooms when a private school was evacuated there and during this time the grounds were maintained by German prisoners of war.
There are 4 dog friendly rooms, well behaved dogs are welcome in the Cellars Brasserie. Dog charges are applicable at £10 per dog per night.
