Wake up to Birdsong
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.
Leave the 21st century behind and enter a fairy tale. The 19 rooms and suites are wonderfully restful. There are no snazzy gadgets; just elegant antiques, hand-stencilled wallpaper, stacks of books and the biggest luxury of all – total silence.
In November, December and January book three nights and receive the third night free.
