As a location for a wedding Bickleigh Castle made a Fabulouse backdrop and my sisters wedding it was faultless.
However the accommodation I was assigned was of extremely poor qualily. My partner and I were given the smallest double bedroom I have ever seen, anywhere! in addition to the very small double bed (for 2 strappin lads!) we also shared a bathroom with other guests. We were in the Cottage lol. The bathroom is of very poor quality and is well overdue an entire refit. with the shower rail broken and the towel rail hanging off the wall to list but a few faulty things with it.
In our bedroom we had tea and coffee making facilities, on closer inspection of the kettle, we chose not to use it! that with a very naff old alam clock was the list of great fittings no tv or even hairdryer bolttled water would be a good idea and some blackout lining in thosethin curtains would help block out the light on those bright early mornings.
Our bedside and over head lamp were covered with dead flies, the room was not made up nor the bin emptied after the first night.
Fittings in the room were of poor standared with a totel lack of hanging facilities, not a wardrobe in site just 2 poles against the wall and only 1 pillow each on the bed.
other members of my family did have very nice accomadation, its just a shame that the cottage looks a little sad with its woodchip and lack of space. If your planning a wedding think b4 you use the cottage, guests may be better off at a local BB staying here isnt cheap and not at all comfortable.
