My two hotels in the West country are each very different and I love them both. One for it’s perfect position and views of the Cornish sea, the other for its extraordinary architecture deep in the secluded Devon countryside.
Hotel Endsleigh is a Grade I historic house set in 100 acres of fairytale woodland, follies and grottos created by Humphry Repton. The Duke of Bedford, who owned a third of Devon, chose this spot for his fishing and hunting lodge.
Hidden on the edge of the Dartmoor, many of the 18 bedrooms have magnificent views of the gardens, the river Tamar and beyond into Cornwall.
There is no muzak whatsoever at Endsleigh only the birds singing and the bats squeaking.

It doesn’t matter if it rains or shines, the Easter Bunny will have left a trail of eggs through the garden at Endsleigh!
