Win a Stay at our Hotel of the Week: Hotel Endsleigh – Milton Abbot, Devon

Hotel Endsleigh

This delightful Regency cottage orné is set down a mile-long drive in its own secret valley. Built for the Duke and Duchess of Bedford, its gardens were laid out by Humphry Repton, whose plans included siting hidden chimneys in the woods so they could see smoke curling prettily above the trees. Today, over a delicious meal, you can gaze on the same view from lovely terraces.

Hotel Endsleigh

Repton’s Yew Walk, the River Tamar and the tumbling woods beyond are a mesmerising sight. With its wooden floors and doors, Endsleigh brings to mind an endearingly old-fashioned Scottish shooting lodge, but one artfully blended with contemporary luxury and owner Olga Polizzi’s stunning eye for design. The sitting room is fabulous and two suites, one perfect for families, the other for honeymooners, have been created in the stable block, bringing the total number of stylish and unfussy bedrooms to 18. As for the grounds, they are a fantasy  of dells and grottos, cascades and crags.

TIP

SEE

Hotel Endsleigh

Take long walks through the grounds, there’s a corridor stocked with Hunter wellies in every size. You have got a good chance of spotting kingfishers, otters, falcons and even the occasional deer. There are many hidden follies to so take their map as your guide.

EAT

Back at the house, the library table groans under the weight of just-baked scones, quenelles of clotted cream and strawberry jam, cakes and finger sandwiches. It’s the highlight of every day.

BUY

Tavistock is about fifteen minutes away from the hotel and is a lovely little market town on the edge of the moors. Country Cheeses is irresistible if you are partial to a good cheese.
