After such a superb birthday treat last year for my Husbands birthday, we decided to go again this time taking family members with us. Wow we were impressed yet again, we were upgraded to the Northcote Suite, which was wonderful, and our gourmet meal was as great as last years, if not better (if that was possible). The surrounding grounds... More

It was really lovely to return to Northcote. However it did not live up to our expectations. There are so many little things that could be improved. It's all a bit living in the past, no problem with that, but just not worth the rate we paid for a superior room and dining. The evening meals were very good, but... More

This is a great place for the whole family to visit as there are a variety of activities for the kids to take part. You are able to hire bikes and ride into Barnstable for the day on a trail through a stunning landscape of rolling fields. There is an heated and glass covered pool, two glassed playgrounds and a...

I always try to base my reviews and star ratings taking into account the amount paid. We stayed at Northcote Manor for two nights Dinner, B&B for £363 via Daily Telegraph Travel (which is Secret Escapes). This amount included the Booking Fee charged directly by the Daily Telegraph. I have no hesitation, based on this price, in awarding the Hotel... More

We were looking forward to a peaceful, relaxing stay. We were welcomed by Max and were impressed with his professionalism. However, the stay was disappointing as we found the place rather old school and pompous. We were also lied to about being able to reserve a spot in the restaurant - apparently the tables were allocated to rooms- only to... More

We are genuinely sorry for any miscommunication about requesting a specific table position in our restaurant. Whilst we always try to accommodate individual preferences, when different groups of guests all request the same table, we allocate priority upon the occasion (anniversary, birthday, honeymoon). We appreciate and apologise if we gave any wrong impression. Please may we assure you of our... More

This was our first visit to Northcote Manor. The hotel has a delightful country house ambience. The hotel itself is spacious relaxing & comfortable, the extensive grounds are unfortunately rather overgrown in places,however it would not be too difficult to rectify this,apart from the tennis court. Our room was extremely comfortable, especially the bed,the bathroom was nice,however the shower cubicle... More

My partner had booked this hotel for my birthday and it really was a great find. From when you drive up to the hotel, to the quality of the room and food, I couldn't have asked for more. We had the gourmet evening on the first night and every course was delicious and accompanied by a different wine. The staff,although... More

We stayed in the old house which is characterful and decorated in traditional style. We enjoyed stunning views over rolling countryside. Next time we would ask for the suite on the corner as it had recently been beautifully re-decorated. The staff were helpful and pleasant and food on all three evenings was excellent. Breakfast was served in the conservatory and... More

First impressions were good as I drove about half a mile up hill on the drive of the hotel. Through thickly wooded hillside with that unmistakable smell of woodland one felt at peace. The hotel came into site and looked quite special and was obviously quite old. We were greeted by a very smiley young man who checked us in... More
