Hotel Endsleigh is tucked away in the peaceful Tamar valley, the house was originally built for the 6th Duke of Bedford in 1811 who chose to use it as a hunting and fishing lodge. Today Hotel Endsleigh is one of the most important Regency country houses remaining and has wonderful views across the River Tamar to Cornwall beyond. There are just sixteen bedrooms which have been carefully restored to the Regency style but with additional contemporary touches to ensure the utmost comfort.

The most endearing part of a stay at Hotel Endsleigh has to be a walk through the stunning gardens which were originally landscaped in 1814 by Humphrey Repton who learned all he knew from Capability Brown. There are over one hundred acres of magical gardens with salmon and trout fishing along the River Tamar and her tributary streams which gently wind their way through the valley past an ancient grotto and various follies - signature features of their time.

Situated in-between Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor, the hotel is a great place to stay if exploring the surrounding National Parks, be it on foot, horseback or bike. The fishing is highly acclaimed and shooting and falconry is also on offer. Hotel Endsleigh is a peaceful hideaway with lots of action for those that desire it.

Location & Directions

Devon, England

Hotel Endsleigh is situated on the river Tamar in the village of Milton Abbot, Devon. It lies between Bodminmoor to the west and Dartmoor National Park to the East.

When to go

It is very difficult to predict the weather in the United Kingdom - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but the UK does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.
