Situated within the Tarmar Valley, on the edge of the Dartmoor, one of the greatest, unspoilt natural areas left in England, Hotel Endsleigh was originally designed for the 6th Duke of Bedford in 1811, who chose this spot of enchanting beauty for his fishing and hunting lodge. Today, Hotel Endsleigh is one of the most important Regency country houses remaining and it is set in 108 acres of fairytale woodland and surrounded by beautiful gardens and grottos.
Reside like the Duke of Bedford at Hotel Endsleigh and discover nearby National Trust and English Heritage properties, like Cotehele and Buckland Abbey and enjoy the English countryside at its best.
Rooms & Suites
Olga Polizzi, renowned interior designer and hotelier, bought Hotel Endsleigh in 2005 and carefully restored its original spirit of the regency period, with original pieces and artwork blended with contemporary luxury. This intimate countryside retreat offers a total of 18 rooms and suites that feature antique furniture, fine linens and rolltop-baths and most have magnificent views of the gardens, the river Tamar and beyond into Cornwall. The restaurant serves local produce, cooked according to traditional English recipes, in the Duke’s original dining room that is decorated with the crests of the Bedford’s family and friends.
Restaurant & Bars
The restaurant of Hotel Endsleigh is considered one of the top 20 places to eat out in the entire UK and its Afternoon Tea is one of the most popular in the region. In spring and summer and when the weather allows it, the restaurant spills out onto the garden.
The beautiful gardens provide not only an ideal setting for lush picnics, but also for a game of croquet and table tennis, or simply for a walk. Hotel Endsleigh is a member of the Endsleigh fishing club and owns seven rods, so guests can fish along eight miles of the best salmon and sea trout river in England.
