What a fantastic place this is, something very different! We can thoroughly recommend! We stayed in one of the thatched cottages in the grounds which was amazing - so peaceful and quiet. The room was a good size, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely in the conservatory overlooking the gardens. We also had a tour of the castle which... More

Faerie tale, majestic and historic. This romantic and very real castle is a treat for romantics and historians alike. The staff and proprietors are both charming and eccentric in equal proportions, adding their own personal warmth to the castles hearth. Original paintings adorn the entrance hall, look out for the lecherous glance of King Charles as he appears to glare... More

We have just got home from a 3 night stay at Bickleigh Castle. We had the NCrowd deal of 3 nights for £150. I phoned and booked the dates I wanted and the receptionist was very polite and I double checked with her that the deal was right as it was cheap, she assured me all was well and good... More

As someone who regularly stays away for work, it was absolutely wonderful to find somewhere with character and soul. Received a warm welcome from Sarah who went to considerable trouble to make me feel at home and gave me a tour. My bedroom was fantastic with sumptuous linen. This is the only establishment EVER to double check in advance that... More

We stayed in a superior cottage, and... More

Delighted to have spent a lovely weekend at this characterful and charming castle. Sarah John Jess and the rest of the staff made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to ensure our stay was memorable from the moment we arrived right through to the last minute, joining in on the easter egg hunt in the grounds...
