Luxury hotel in Devon

Hi does anyone have a view on whether Hotel Endsleigh is better than Gidleigh Park or are they of a similar standard. I know all hotels have their strengths and weaknesses but I’m looking for a more adult focused place with picturesque views, nice grounds, peace and quiet, relaxation and decent food. Thanks!

I’ve never been to Gidleigh Park but have visited the Endsleigh several times. I’ve been given guided tours of the hotel and gardens as well as eating various meals there.

If you’re looking for an “adult focused place with picturesque views, nice grounds, peace and quiet, relaxation and decent food” I highly recommend it. The gardens are superb, the staff are friendly and there are plenty of smallish public rooms, different terraces etc to enjoy isolation if you wish. Great food too.

An added bonus: the history of the place is fascinating.

Never been to any of those - but I like Bovey Castle. It is child friendly though, puts on activities for them. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g…

I was very impressed with Gidleigh Park when I went for lunch, the only drawback being the road to it but that's a minor inconvenience. We went on a tour of the house, herb garden and the less formal garden too but I was quite surprised (albeit three years ago) that it didn't have a swimming pool.
