Stayed here late October and had a fab time. John and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Stayed in one of the cottages. The room had a seperate bathroom but didn't find that too much of an issue for a couple of nights. Love the authenticity of the place.. and eventhough its not 100% clean its a very original... More

I didn't even know about this location until I got an email from Amazon Local. Checked it out and booked a three night break - bed and continental breakfast. And, it was good. The room was adequate and comfortable but lacked one thing - a second easy chair. But this is so common in hotels, one person grabs the chair... More

Thank you for your helpful review. A very useful suggestion about self-service tea/coffee facility in the sitting room and I think we'll try this. An opportunity to mention to all readers that we are having new carpets in all the cottage sleeping accommodation and new flooring in the bathrooms. This will be finished by Wednesday 10th December 2014. We wish... More

We stayed 3 nights in room 10. Beautiful setting by the river. The castle is run by a family who are welcoming and accommodating. We really enjoyed the 1 hr castle tour. The castle is 15 minute walk to Bickleigh Mill shop & cafe and 2 cosy pubs which are all lovely places to spend a few hours. It's also... More

Sarah, Robbie and John were excellent hosts. We stayed here for a stag do last weekend and we were looked after very well. The venue was ideal; lovely setting, comfortable rooms and well positioned. The castle is fascinating and John is very well versed on it's history. I'd strongly recommend a tour. All in all a brilliant weekend. Will

We returned yesterday from a lovely weekend stay at Bickleigh castle. We had an Amazon voucher which was given as a present in June - we did had a little difficulty finding a free weekend to book as most of the weekends were fully booked for weddings. However, the staff were very helpful and extended the life of the voucher... More

We had a fantastic stay this weekend. Lovely spacious room, room 10 family room with on suite and fantastic views across courtyard and over countryside. Yes housekeeping could do better but more than made up for by John and Robin and their friendly staff. The full English was well worth the extra £5 and my partner said it was one... More

Wonderful area, however the bedrooms are no good. Really sorry to say that, as the place has much history and the B&B and wedding business, probably is the best income they have but really, the bedrooms need a good scrap and update. Dust everywhere! The clock by the bedside was filthy. The bathroom smelled bad. They had fresheners everywhere that... More

Well, rather unfair to post this 4 months after the visit, particularly as we have made a number of changes. We did have a bad patch with staff back in May and as a result had to part company with four members of staff, which is unusual but we have to a certain extent been up against the general national...
