Gidleigh is certainly the place to be, an enthralling experience you'll cherish for years to come!

Gidleigh Park  a luxurious country house hotel in Dartmoor is celebrating another incredible accolade;  the hotel and its renowned 2 Michelin Star Restaurant, headed up by Michael Caines MBE, has just been voted UK number 1 in the Sunday Times Top 100 British Restaurants, Best Places to Stay and Best Wine List.  So together with the sumptuous interiors and fabulous rooms this hotel has to offer you, this makes Gidleigh Park the ultimate destination for your well deserved romantic break.

 The hotel has been beautifully transformed since it was acquired by Andrew and Christina Brownsword who have exquisitely combined the original architectural features of this Arts and Crafts building with carefully selected contemporary and period furnishings.  The owners' private collection of unique turn of the century artworks  are on display complementing the decor and adding real  personality to this heavenly hideaway.

 Your drive up the winding private lane enables you to embrace the stunning landscaped gardens and woodland covering  107 acres and blessed with the delightful North Teign River running through. This is the perfect backdrop for a truly memorable grown up getaway.

 There are just 24 resplendent bedrooms here, again each has been tenderly individually furnished to the highest spec and luxurious comfort is key.  The charming and elegant decor, high tech facilities such as HD flat screen TVs, Wifi etc, and super comfy bed all help to ensure a blissful stay and one to cherish for years ahead. The service is impeccable and you can also make use of the pantry which is great for a quick coffee, late night snacks or a special surprise Champagne moment!

 For a truly amazing and indulgent treat, then you can book one of the fabulous Spa Suites. Each of the three Spa Suites has been individually designed and feature unique facilities to include a heated stone lounger , double marble bath, sauna and steam room as well as breathtaking views of the valley.  For extra exclusivity The Pavilion, is a luxury spacious 2 bedroom cottage situated 350 yards away along the river ( and reachable by car also).

 As mentioned above, the Michael Caines dining experience is the icing on the cake.  Now that this is officially the best in the country then it's certainly going to be an enthralling experience.

The 2 Michelin stars restaurant serves the finest local and regional produce, interpreted in Michael Caines unique Modern European style with a creative and innovative twist. The Head Sommelier and his team are always delighted to advise on the fine wine list available, featuring over 1200 bins all stored expertly in the hotel's purpose built wine cellar, private tours can be arranged in advance

 Most couples who visit here tend to sit back, relax and unwind, taking in the outstanding scenery  with a glass of wine on the terrace, or warming up by the log fire with a brandy after dinner.  If you do wish to venture out, then there is plenty to do in the surrounding area.  However with such a beautiful piece of paradise here, who on earth would want to leave it?

Needless to say, a stay at Gidleigh Park is extremely sought after so please check out the website for availability and don't forget to mention Away without the Kids when booking.
