This Moorland Castle is a classic English country house on a traditional estate located in 275 acres of ancient moorland in Devon. The original neo-Elizabethan style manor house was built over a century ago as a country retreat. A large handsome property in the heart of the wild and romantic Devonshire countryside, it is surrounded by lawns, lakes and terraces.  Inside the period features are stunning; a large Jacobean staircase, oak panelling in the rooms and huge feature fireplaces, minstrel galleries and chandeliers.

The manor house has plenty of delightful spaces for exclusive use events, from intimate boardrooms to romantic period style rooms perfect for a country house wedding.   You will be spoilt for choice. This is a truly flexible venue that can satisfy most requirements, whatever the occasion or size of group.

The castle can cater for large groups for a wedding breakfast or dancing, while outdoor events can be held on the glorious lawns and gardens overlooking the lake. With exclusive use, guests can party until late as there are no neighbours for miles in this beautiful and secluded spot.

For corporate guests this is a superb property for incentives, meetings and team-building, with the capacity to cater for large scale events.  There are plenty of smaller syndicate and breakout meeting rooms as well as stylish period boardrooms for important meetings. Meeting rooms include plasma touch screens and Bose sound systems.

For relaxation there’s a spa with an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and an 18-hole championship golf course as well as what must be one of the most extensive lists of countryside activities available, from falconry and ferret racing to horse-riding and country fairs.

We like:

  • the spectacular views from the terrace
  • the lovely spa and pool – bliss!
  • arriving in style with a private train compartment

Easily accessible from Exeter Airport or the train station guests can be driven back to the resort – and then the fun can really begin.
