About the garden

Prepare to fall in love with this Grade I listed picturesque paradise in Devon. Among the last that English landscape architect Humphry Repton designed, 200 years ago, the stunning gardens at Hotel Endsleigh are like something out of a fairytale and one of the most romantic in the country.

Across the 108-acre site are soothing streams, gushing waterfalls, sweeping lawns, beautiful rockery, roaming wildlife and peaceful woodland. Watch the 100-metre herbaceous border burst into life in spring, wander through the thriving Rose walk during summer and witness Acers turn the wooded dell into a sea of autumn colour. You can also see champion trees within the arboretum and fascinating nearby ruins.

During your visit, why not arrange a Falconry Session, have fun with the kids on the exciting treetop obstacle course or have a family game of table tennis? Non-residents can indulge in a delicious cream tea in the house-turned-hotel or enjoy an afternoon tea picnic in the gardens.

A peaceful hotel set away in a beautiful Devon valley. A lovely old building with great open fire places. This is a place to go for a quiet retreat in the countryside, well away from city life. You can go for long walks in the beautiful grounds. Staff were exemplary. Polite, attentive and friendly. Food was exceptional. We enjoyed the spring menu which was fresh and well balanced. The wine menu was excellent with a wide selection of old and new world wines - although the markup on some wines was probably a bit on the high side. This is not somewhere to go for an action packed holiday, or for lots of activities. There are no spa or gym facilities. But if you want a relaxing break away in beautiful surroundings then we could not recommend this venue more highly.

This is the most beautiful hotel in stunning location. Food was amazing. Staff were so welcoming & couldn't do enough. The rooms are really nice, it's an old building so the rooms are rustic not modern but so very charming. Can't wait to return.

A beautiful magical place. We stayed for 3 nights dinner, bed and breakfast , with our two dogs . We spent a days fishing for trout on the river Tamar, which is at the bottom of the estate. A beautiful, restful extravagant retreat.

So it's a place where those who want to be seen go.. all kinds of private reg plates in the car park.. The food... today had a roast beef lunch. Yorkshires a bit plastic, roast beef too thick and way too tough. Gravy had garlic in.. just wrong. The veg were nicely cooked with the carrots a chargrilled touch. Green veg the right colour green but too salty.. Dessert was a lemon and passion fruit Meringue tart was quite perfect and the BASIL SORBET just divine! For the price it just wasn't perfect enough but the basil sorbet definitely helped the score! It's probably worth going for that alone! Waiting staff the girls quite pleasant and unobtrusive but there was one guy with long hair in an unkempt ponytail plastered in a mask who kept saying our name wrong which we found slightly amusing and who clearly delights in testing your etiquette of fine dining. (I think we passed) Big open fires wonderful on a cold wet day Table was by the window which was a delightful view but very drafty. £173 for 2 mains 1 dessert 1 coffee and a bottle of wine (oh and the dessert was complimentary because we waited 30 minutes for it) service charge is added at 12.5% Boom baby!

Very quant place providing excellent service in a beauty surrounding. Food was average with good choice. I wish there was options of 2 or 3 course. We very much enjoyed our stay.
