This was our second trip to Gidleigh. This time we stayed for two nights rather than one and it really made our stay. The location and grounds are so lovely that you need time to explore and enjoy it, not just eat, sleep and leave! There are lovely circular walks for various lengths of time around the grounds and beyond,... More

My wife and I have been to Gidleigh Park several times and have always found the whole experience extremely memorable. This visit was to celebrate my wife's 'special' birthday. All the staff were courteous, friendly and seemed determined to ensure our stay was comfortable and relaxing. My wife certainly felt pampered, especially on her birthday. The bedroom was spacious, beautifully... More

Took my wife for her 30th birthday surprise and we were spoilt from the start to the finish. The best food we've had out anywhere so far and we can't wait to go back. Many thanks and keep up the good work.

We have stayed at Gidleigh several times, usually to celebrate some milestone in our lives. We have also visited for lunch - again to mark special occasions (A levels, university acceptances etc). This time we went to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and I wanted to let everyone know how wonderful a time we had! The food was, of course,... More

Celebrated our ruby wedding with our elder daughter and her fiancé. Fourth visit, and even better than the last time. The location is breathtakingly beautiful, and ALL the staff, led by Edouard and somelier Simone went out of their way to make out stay truly memorable. I really cannot understand how anyone could criticise this place. Food was as good... More

Was taken here for a special birthday. On arriving the staff could not have been more helpful and pleasant without being 'over the top'. We were upgraded to a suite which was absolutely fabulous! A walk in shower and a huge bath big enough for 2. Fantastic views over the grounds. My other half had arranged a massage for me... More

We booked for lunch in early May to enjoy the grounds but as it turned out rain came down. The long and very narrow road/ lane up to Gidleigh was not enjoyable but from the moment we went into the hotel to the time we left it was absolutely fantastic.
