John showed us around once we had... More

At check-in you are given a map of the area showing nearby pubs, restaurants etc. So the first evening we walked up to the Trout Inn, about 12mins,... More

We stayed at Bickleigh Castle for 2 nights - 3 to 5 August 2014. We had a warm welcome on arrival from Robert, present custodian of this beautiful hamlet. Our room was in the thatched clock house which dates back centuries. We had original wooden beams above our comfy double bed. The room was airy and comfortable and furnished accordingly.... More

We stayed in the bridal suite back in May and had a fantastic stay - the nearest thing to your own castle as you have your own wing! My husband loves castles so he was in his element lol You have a couple of pubs/restaurants within strolling distance We will be returning
