I stayed for 2 nights with my partner and children aged 5 and 8 years and we all had a wonderful time. The pretty accommodation and impressive castle created a fairytale environment. The children were impressed with the grounds and tennis court although spent most of their time seeking out the cats, ducks and Guinea pig! The owners and staff... More

Stayed in the castle's cottages overnight so that I could see the castle the next day. I was not disappointed! The owner of the castle is a charming gentleman who gives conducted tours of this lovely, historic building. If you like history, and would like to see a privately run, moated castle, with suits of armour and historic weapons, then... More

We booked a weekend break away in Bickleigh as part of our 'post wedding' break (not really a honeymoon). As soon as the castle gets in sight it is impressive. We booked in and found all the people very friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfy and charming, comfy bed and a nice bathroom. We stayed in the Moat House.... More

We stayed in the clock house and found it perfectly equipped with charm and functional mod cons you expect to find. The tour of the existing castle was shared with enthusiam and with... More

We booked a 2 day stay at Bickleigh Castle on a 'Wowcher deal' which was a real bargain and certainly a memorable experience. We arrived at the end of a Holistic Fayre event, which had been held in the castle & main house, so our reception was rather disorganised. We were shown to our room, which was spacious & appeared...

Stayed two nights with a deal that our son and his girlfriend bought for us. Beautiful location, well situated for many attractions. Our cottage room was large and comfortable, roomy bathroom. From owners to staff we were made to feel extremely welcome, lovely continental breakfast. We were even offered the loan of a torch as the car park was rather... More

This place is simply beautiful. Very lovely rooms with adequate facilities. The location was perfect for us as a weekend get away to Devon with beautiful scenery and both local pubs were a short walk away for drinks and lovely food. The telephone signals were non existant but this just made us enjoy it all the more as no one... More

Bickleigh Caste is primarily a corporate events and wedding venue and has chocolate box thatched cottages for guests which are used for B&B during the week. My sister and I visited recently and found our cottage room comfortable and clean. The beds and pillows were to die for. We were given a guided tour of the castle which has an... More

If you would like a hotel that can trace it's origins back to the Saxon's in the 6th century, and is mentioned in the Domesday book, then this is the one for you. All but destroyed during the English Civil war, the remains became a country house that forms today's hotel, and more stone from the castle walls was used... More

Booked this hotel because we were going to a wedding in Tiverton and Bickleigh Castle is only 4 miles south. Very pleased we did because the surroundings are very picturesque and our room had great views over the river. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed the tour of the castle before we left. Great that... More
