Two night break as couple and found it difficult to fault. Great value for money, lovely setting even in the middle of January. Room in a courtyard area not in the main hotel, the room was very nicely appointed with four poster bed and lofted ceiling. There was a problem with the heating which was quickly sorted out, and staff... More

We booked the Restaurant here for Sunday lunch and, although reception hadn't passed the booking to the restaurant, they fitted us in. The view from our t able for two was panoramic and the crisp white table cloth made us feel that this was an 'occasion venue. Unfortunately the experience didn't live up to the promise. The hotel receptionist was... More

We stayed as a couple for a 4-night break in November. The hotel was warm and welcoming. Our room was not in the main house but in a courtyard area within the grounds but this was our choice and was no problem at all. Room was very clean, well-equipped, warm, quiet and comfortable. We spent a lot of time sitting... More

We stayed at Highbullen from 29th December to 2nd January in Stable Cottage. We were a party of 10, including a one year old baby and 2 dogs. The Highbullen catered for all of our needs faultlessly, from start to finish. Between us we have stayed in many 5* hotels across the world and the Highbullen stands out as a... More

They were entertained by monopoly, short Devon countryside walks (reception has a comprehensive list of walks that may be undertaken) , dvd's supplied to the rooms, time spent in the swimming pool and eating the delicious children's meals inbetween playing 40/40.They also could not...

A large party of old friends assembled to spend two days together over new year. Highbullen promised much and delivered more. Food, value, service and comfort were all outstanding. Big smiles all round. We'll be back soon.
