Me and my boyfriend stayed for two nights over Valentine's Day and couldn't have had a nicer time! We were greeted by John the host when we arrived who showed us to our room and had answers for all of our questions, and gave us his personal recommendations for things to do nearby which was a nice touch - he...

We had an excellent stay at Bickleigh Castle. Our room was very clean with a good ensuite with lovely shower. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice and very friendly staff. There are some deep stone stairs outside the property to climb (not many) to get to the room. The only thing I didn't like was I felt...

Just wanted to post a review for the lovely owners of the castle. They kindly let us take some rocks from their land. We have been to the castle and been shown around as part of a wedding party and the grounds and castle is beautiful. We live in the nearby village and are lucky enough to benefit from the...

Stayed at the castle for three nights ( room 4) a lovely clean and cozy room with an ensuite bathroom. John the host was warm and friendly, he even treated the guests to a tour of the castle and grounds- where his knowledge on the estate was very interesting.

Idyllic place, ideally located. It's warm, cosy and the owner offers a welcome that makes you feel immediately at home. All of the facilities are to a high standard and the wifi is strong in the main living room - but let's face it, if you need to spend your time on the web then stay at home. There are...

In 2015 my wife and I spent our honeymoon at the Castle and were so pleased that we returned for our 1st Anniversary. On this occasion we stayed in one of the cottages as opposed to the honeymoon suite in the actual castle.

I want to point out before I continue that my pickiness is due to how much it costs to stay at the castle. My partner and I attended a wedding here at Bickleigh and we were very disappointed. 1.

I happened to be on hand to attend to one or two issues. Readers may be surprised to learn, given the above comments, that the alleged shortcomings of the room were attended to IMMEDIATELY the problems were flagged up. There was such a tiny mark on a table cover that we had to look really hard to spot it; likewise...
