“Somewhere special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

This was our first visit to Lewtrenchard Manor and we will most definitely return again.
It felt quite special to be staying in such a well maintained and appointed historic house - with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere quite unlike anything one might normally expect to find in an upmarket country house hotel.
It was so interesting just to browse along the paintings and furniture in the corridors, stairways and galleries and so comfortable to sit by the fire in the bar, or at an elegant table for dinner.
Dinner was hugely enjoyable and of an excellent standard - as was breakfast.
Our deluxe room was large and comfortable and despite the very old leaded windows, warm and very quiet.
We enjoyed exploring the gardens and could imagine spending more time relaxing here if the weather had been kinder.
All in all a memorable and excellent stay, to be repeated hopefully soon.

This was our third visit to Lewtrenchard Manor and I hope we will be back again. It is such a beautiful old house, it is like staying in a National Trust property. The bedrooms are very comfortable and very quiet with just the sound of the tinkling of the fountain outside. The food is excellent and I particularly enjoyed my Devon turbot with creamy risotto with mushrooms and roast salsify. Sat in the bar for pre-dinner drinks and it was light and bright at that time with the evening sun pouring in and a fire lit, then in the Hall after dinner which felt cosy and relaxing after dark. Breakfast was also very good with delicious pastries.

Stayed here for 3 nights in early September. Hidden away in rural Devon it's location is wonderful. It's not cheap but is clearly a special place.. The grounds are really lovely and the staff go out of their way to help. The owners are often there and chat away to you. The room was in the courtyard and unfortunately had gravel outside so you could hear all the early morning deliveries and people walking past which we initially were not happy about at that price but when we pointed it out the hotel went o great e goths to put thing right by giving us a free evening meal. The food overall was amazing although expensive ( for us). Breakfast is a little bit formal and stuffy and more choice of continental could be offered rather than just homemade muesli and yoghurt. Overall a lovely experience. Also very dog friendly which is an added bonus. We would definitely stay again. Also ring direct and negotiate a slightly cheaper price rather than booking through the big agencies online.

We had the pleasure of staying at Lewtrenchard Manor recently. We stayed four nights in total. The service of the hotel staff was exceptional. The lovely setting of this Manor makes it even more special. We had a nice time visiting with the owners of the Manor. We spent several evenings in the bar area where we had pleasant conversations. We highly recommend Lewtrenchard Manor. You will not be disappointed.

As somebody who stays in 150 hotel rooms a year, all over the world, this is possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in - affording tranquillity and luxury at a sensible price.
There are not enough superlatives in the English language to accurately express how good this hotel is. Lovely setting, beautiful gardens, stunning period property, luxurious room (Aurelia) skilfully combining tradition with modernity. Your taste buds will be assaulted by an array of wonderful delicacies during your stay but what stood out for my wife and me was the unassuming, old fashioned attention to service and detail afforded to each and every guest, led by two hosts who clearly love their work and brilliantly supported by the entire staff.

Service was impeccable. Thomas and his wife Sue were extremely gracious and helpful ... and they had lots of interesting stories about South Africa. Be sure to ask them how they met! The full breakfast was always very good as was the afternoon tea in the garden. It is a small hotel so the number of guests was small enough to personally meet many of them in the evening at the cozy bar. We were traveling with another couple and were the only Americans there. The other guests were all British and quite an interesting lot. We used the 400 year old manor house as a base for exploring Devon and Cornwall, but found ourselves wanting to spend more time at the manor enjoying its amenities. We were usually tired from our days of exploring (and driving on some very narrow country lanes dragging brush on both sides!) so we always opted to take our evening meal in the bar. This worked out well because we met the other hotel guests rotating through the bar before dinner. This made it much easier to chat. The only disappointment was that we had no glimpse of either of the two resident ghosts; however, Sue had some wonderful stories about them.

Room Tip: The Prince Rupert room is on the second floor at the front with a nice view of the garden. Very qui...
