Hotel Endsleigh

Countryside Hotel of the Year

Springtime LunchSpring Break

My two hotels in the West country are each very different and I love them both. One for its 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 Dartmoor, many of the 19 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.

The far reaches of the estate

By Ben Ruscombe-King

This year as the garden slumbered through the winter, the garden team decamped to the further reaches of the estate, opening up paths and rides in the as yet unexplored areas. We became heroic adventurers scrambling our way through the Himalayan foothills, fighting our way through impenetrable jungle, discovering rare exotic plants, eventually emerging to breathtaking views across a Caledonian valley. What became apparent was that the garden was once a miniature tour of the new worlds opening up to the owners. Whilst our work is by no means complete, there are now many more walks for the more adventurous visitors and much to explore.
