This hotel is a beautiful location for a wedding which was our reason for visiting . Beautiful grounds and peaceful location. It's quite pricey being the only luxury hotel in the area and the rooms could do with a little face lift but overall friendly staff and a great atmosphere in the bar, good food and we enjoyed our stay.

We stayed here last week and appreciated the warm greeting we received on arrival for our for two nights stay. We found all the staff friendly and extremely helpful throughout. The room we were allocated overlooked the well kept gardens at the rear with well developed trees giving it a picturesque backdrop to behold. Our room was fine and the... More

Firstly this is a really nice small country hotel, great location in beautiful North Devon. However, the standard of furnishings as you move deeper into the hotel gets poorer and poorer. Lovely Laura Ashley wallpaper in the main areas of the hotel, but as you move towards room 14, the decor gets poor. Stains on faded curtains, cushions and bed... More

Thank you for the advice and photos which appear to show the buffet at the end of breakfast rather than what we normally offer. We strive to replace items at peak times but clearly were remiss in this instance. I am very sorry that you experienced disappointment and can only say that had we been made aware of the issues...

It's hard to do justice to this stylish accommodation, built in the branches of a glorious English oak,...breathtakingly beautiful down to the last detail. If you're looking for a romantic break with a difference or a special night away with your children then this could well be it. Set in the grounds of a stunning country hotel you have the... More

A charming hotel set in beautiful surroundings with courteous and helpful staff. The only drawback was finding ourselves in a room next to a couple who were only able to talk to each other in ear damaging decibels. At 2am in the morning it was not a restful experience. Next day, the manager was very helpful and moved us to... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do appreciate the comments; even the not so positive ones. In response to your more negative comments, whilst we strive to give all guests with dogs rooms as close to the front door as possible, on occasions we have to allow dogs into bedrooms elsewhere to be able to...

I stayed in the treehouse not the hotel so this is purely based on the treehouse. It's was incredible value for money, it was such a relief to be pleasantly surprised upon arrival. It's the perfect romantic break, one you'll never forget. I was so impressed with how all the nice fixtures inside which would not be out of place... More

As a regular to Canopy & Stars we booked a weekend in a Tree house through there website. And we were not disappointed. This tree house is truly magical. In fact we did not want to leave. The interior of the Tree house is stunning. My husband is an avid fly fisherman and he was able to buy a day... More

Extremely friendly staff for ones so young, but it was obvious that their training was to ensure every visitor was well catered for. The restaurant food was fantastic, the location peacefull. If there was a negative, it would be that the bedrooms seem quite bland.
