Our Inspector's view
As wonderful as always, the stunning setting of Gidleigh Park, approached through winding Devon lanes until you glimpse the graceful old lady standing proudly looking down the beautiful valley. Surrounded by woodland with a babbling brook to the front, one very much gets a sense of privilege arriving here, but also a genuine feeling that you're at a true country house, with the team all contributing to an engaging and absorbing guest experience. The dining room is split into three rooms, all relatively understated with 1950s-style chairs, impeccably clothed tables and a simple and refined elegance throughout. There's a tangible sense of pride in Chris Eden's staff with a beautifully drilled team delivering a perfectly balanced blend of knowledge, interest and hospitality.

About The area
With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.
Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them.
Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
