Tavistock, Devon, England

Hotel Endsleigh

It’s little wonder that the Duke of Bedford, who two centuries ago owned a third of Devon, chose this spot for his hunting and fishing lodge. Overlooking the River Tamar and beyond into Cornwall, Endsleigh, now owned by Olga Polizzi, sits this 16 room hotel set in 108 acres of gardens, woodlands, follies and grottos created by Humphry Repton. Picnic in the woods, or while away the hours at the historic Endsleigh Fishing Club and enjoy some of the world's best salmon fly-fishing. Amongst the wild expanses of dartmoor sits the Hotel Endsleigh, a 200 year old lodge originally built by the Duke of Bedford. With extensive gardens designed by Humphry Repton and In splendid rural isolation, the only sounds to be heard are birdsongs and leaves rustling in the breeze. The hotel has 16 individually style boutique bedrooms, each with hand painted wallpaper, while the hotel offers a wealth of outdoor activities to enjoy.
