Our daughter's wedding was July 16th. We chose to reside at the castle from Thursday to Sunday. Having both families together was perfect. The castle owners and staff had everything planned just the way we had hoped - flawlessly! The atmosphere, the music, the food and all the available activities made for a fantastic wedding weekend.

We stayed in September 2015 and were so enamored of the hotel that we went back again this year in June. Had the same room again too! Family travelling and even our 4 year old found it a fascinating place. Owners are very welcoming and staff great.Overall loved the uniqueness of the castle and its various cottages. Great relaxation with... More

My nephew and his bride picked Bickleigh Castle for their wedding July 9th. I live in San Diego and made the trip especially to be with him and family. The castle was ours for the whole weekend and it was amazing. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The food was excellent, especially the wedding breakfast. Sarah Hay and her staff... More

My son and his bride chose Bickleigh Castle for their wedding on Saturday 9 July 2016. What an amazing place to celebrate. It was absolutely wonderful. Everything was perfect - from the lovely cottages, breakfasts, cream tea in the afternoon when we arrived, the Barbie in the evening to the most wonderful wedding ever! We were all made so welcome...

We had a fantastic time staying at Bickleigh Castle for a friends wedding. The location is so beautiful and the accommodation and facilities were all brilliant. All the team couldn't be more helpful, even giving us a lift to the station when we couldn't get a cab. A perfect location for an English country wedding.

My husband and I were married here in the beautiful surroundings of Bickleigh Castle back in 2006. We had always promised to return someday. As a 10th wedding anniversary treat to ourselves we booked in for the night. We were certainly not disappointed, and enjoyed our stay more this time, as we had the time to really enjoy the immaculately... More

We have recently attended a fairytale wedding at Bickleigh Castle. The whole day was spectacular and the venue is absolutely breath-taking. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble. However, we would not stay there again and a few people we spoke to were of the same opinion. Unfortunately, despite all the positives above, the rooms... More

I'm glad the respondent enjoyed the wedding and the venue in general and I am sorry the writers here were unhappy with the standard of our rooms. This is not what we aspire to and you will find if you read other reviews this year that it is not the general consensus. Our staff were exceptionally busy after a very... More

My partner and I stayed at Bickleigh Castle for a midweek getaway and it was amazing. The room and the entire property are magical and the staff are extremely helpful. Would highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a nice romantic break and we will definitely be coming back.

I went with three friends to an organised weekend retreat at the castle. We stayed in picturesque cottages around the courtyard, with the River Exe nearby. We enjoyed a tour of the castle and learnt its long and interesting history. The guardians of this beautiful historic building, Sarah and Robbie, were attentive and gracious hosts. It was really nice to... More

My friend treated me to two nights at this charming place for my birthday and although it was my second visit I found it equally enjoyable. It is unique and absolutely drenched in history which John impressively conveys in the included tour of the castle. He also arranged a birthday surprise (on my friend's instruction) with balloons and a beautiful... More
