We visited by chance when a planned visit to Germany was cancelled last minute owing to a pilots' strike so we were all packed up and nowhere to go! My daughter said Gidleigh Park was highly recommended so we thought we would go and I am so pleased we did. The grounds were lovely,one could see their summer potential, with... More

I booked this hotel as a surprise for my husband's birthday. We have stayed in many top end wonderful hotels and we both agree that this is certainly our favourite in the UK. From the minute we arrived (after a a mile and a half of single track winding pot holed road!), we knew we were somewhere special. The staff... More

The fact that Gidleigh Park is a bit of pain to get to - involving a trip along a potholed single track road and numerous reversing-into-hedge experiences in order to pass cars coming in the other direction - is in fact part of its charm, and really adds to the feeling that you are escaping everyday life. The house and... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location in Devon on the edge of Dartmoor. There are a variety of walks to enjoy from easy 45 minute walks to more difficult 3 or 5 hour walks on Dartnoor. The staff are very friendly and helpful but the highlight is the food. It is truly excellent with a knowledgeable and friendly sommelier... More

It's rare you can say somewhere is perfect, but you can apply that word to Gidleigh. The setting is superb and you should stop off at Chagford and enjoy the pretty moorland town before winding your way to Gidleigh. Don't be fainthearted as you drive the very narrow lane to the hotel, it's more than worth the trip (your sat... More

Visited Gidleigh park today and it was simply exquisite. Whilst quite an old establishment the menu was up to date. The additional tasters just added to the experience. Nothing was a disappointment. The presentation flavour combination and choice was superb. I wasn't going to have a dessert but was persuaded to and it was probably the best course try the... More

We had a wonderful two day stay here again in February for our anniversary. They really know how to look after you here and make you feel welcome and comfortable. Unlike a lot of places that might have a nice hotel or a nice restaurant and the rest is not so good, here they combine everything beautifully. The Michelin starred... More

The hotel and location is outstanding. There is very little to find fault with at all. Rooms, internet, staff, location and food/drink etc are all outstanding. Walks in the grounds and on the moor are fantastic. Two minor points, both at breakfast. Coffee was horrible and scrambled egg could be better, but these are really minor. Overall a fantastic experience.

A friend has had Gidleigh on his restaurant "hit list" for some time so we booked in for a Saturday dinner. The drive up to Gidleigh adds to the excitement as you draw up to the imposing building you know its going to be something special. Service is exceptional, the food of the highest order and the surroundings are fabulous.... More

Booked in advance with a delightful receptionist who said she would make a note of our special occasion. I asked if one of the Afternoon teas could be a 'fat-free/low fat' option which was acknowledged. Greeted well and found a seat , not reserved.
