On a glorious Friday afternoon in April, we descended on Endsleigh, Olga Polizzi’s romantic hotel in Devon, on the edge of Dartmoor. A wonderful luxury hotel that would be ideal to hire as an exclusive use venue for a 40th or 50th birthday party or special anniversary. A former fishing lodge of the Duke of Bedford, the house was designed by Jeffrey Wyatt and the garden by Humphrey Repton. We wound our way along some narrow Devon lanes before reaching the estate and then taking the long drive through wonderful trees to the house which sits up high, splendidly overlooking miles of forest. It is a very peaceful setting and after a long drive, we instantly felt welcome and started to relax as soon as our case was lifted out of the back of the car.
The house has been decorated with Olga’s usual fantastic taste and ‘light touch’, is a clever mix of comforgable and elegant. Our bedroom opened straight onto the gardens and again had fantastic views. The bathroom was large and very well done and we even had a small sitting room. Once unpacked, we dived into a huge afternoon tea laid out in the sitting room. Never able to resist scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream, we were in need of a good stomp around the grounds before dinner, which again was delicious. We slept well in our huge bed and of course managed to squeeze in a well cooked and promptly served ‘full English’ before departing for home.
This luxury hotel is ideally suited to guests needing to re-charge their batteries, explore this gorgeous part of England and get plenty of fresh air into their lungs. With 16 bedrooms, it would also be great fun to hire the whole hotel as a venue for a 50th birthday party or other celebration, where a host could entertain some close friends in great style and combine fun local activities with fabulous dinners back at Endsleigh. A spoiling place in an old fashioned low key way but with all the modern bits thrown in, like a great bathroom and other facilities. We recommend you try the cocktails.
