Our Top Tip

Join the fabulous guided tour of the beautiful gardens on Wednesday

Hotel Endsleigh

This exquisite Regency fishing lodge is owned and designed by hotelier Olga Polizzi and her daughter, Alex, aka The Hotel Inspector. Olga Polizzi also owns the fabulous Hotel Tresanton, Cornwall, a super stylish hotel by the sea, one of our favourite StockenBridge venues. No surprise then that this is one of Devon’s most perfect hotels, situated in the Tamar Valley among 100 acres of wildly romantic Grade I listed gardens, designed by Humphry Repton and featuring secret grottos, ancient trees, rose-wreathed arches, a shell house, formal parterre, and lawns that sweep down towards the River Tamar. Beyond the formal gardens is the arboretum which contains unusual trees from around the world. 

Built in 1812 for the Duchess of Bedford, there’s a sense of stepping back in time as you enter the grand hall, softly lit, fire crackling in an enormous grate, huge antiquarian shire maps lining the walls. There are two homely drawing rooms with roaring fires, ottomans, botanical paintings, plump sofas and bookshelves lined with classics. Wonderful period features remain, right down to the original fire buckets, hose reels and telephones.

‘‘If ever a hotel were built in paradise it would be like Endsleigh – a fairytale cottage set in an Arcadian landscape with delicious food and blissful rooms. I love it and envy that sublime landscape – the perfect opportunity to step back in time to a graceful age" - Alan Titchmarsh


Endsleigh has 20 bedrooms each individually designed with uncluttered elegance. Expect painted wallpapers, roll-top bathtubs, book-lined shelves and snugly quilted beds. The bedrooms come in all shapes and sizes, some with glorious valley views, some tucked under the eaves, all with antique pieces and above all, sublimely restful. All have en-suite bathrooms with Mitchell and Peach toiletries - some with baths, some with showers and some both. All rooms have a television, DVD player and a safe.
