Excellent meeting facilities, professional and courteous staff, high quality accommodation, great food, the all important good WIFI - and all surrounded by stunning Devon countryside. What more could you want! Business or Leisure, High Bullen is highly recommended.

Highbullen is a quality Golf and Country Club, in the heart of the most beautiful Devon Countryside. The Payne/Smith wedding has been 2.5 years in the making, and Leanne, Wayne and the rest of the staff couldn't have been more attentive or helpful throughout the whole experience. We all had the most amazing, emotional, wedding day. The rooms are spectacular,... More

Really great staff. All so helpful. Excellent food . Best poached eggs ever tasted. Pool and facilities super. A real good length pool not your usual little pools where can only do a few strokes. And further updates planned for the autumn. Excellent value. Wonderful views. And decent golf course, though greens need a wee bit more attention.

This boutique hotel is located in the little village of Chittlehamholt away from the beaten track. You will need a car to get there. We booked one of the cheapest rooms in the Manor over the internet that included breakfast. When we arrived, we were met by a very pleasant receptionist who assigned us the room called "Snug". How appropriately... More
