We have just returned from 3 nights at Great Bidlake Manor celebrating New Years. The house was full of character, extremely comfortable and cosy, and equipped with everything we might need and more. The kids had a great time in the TV and games rooms, and the living areas were perfect for generally hanging out. Location just on the edge of Dartmoor was stunning with easy access to walks - thwarted just by British weather! All in all perfect for a larger group wanting somewhere a bit special to hang out and celebrate.

The house is beautiful; very cosy with open fires and lovely comfortable rooms. Large bedrooms with excellent bathrooms, as well as lots of space downstairs for meals, gathering and relaxing. Very well equipped kitchen that makes it easy to cook for big groups.

The grounds are gorgeous and everything is maintained with great care and attention. Beautiful countryside around - we did a Dartmoor walk - and just a great spot all round.

Everything was absolutely wonderful - great bedrooms, fantastic en-suites, well-equipped kitchen, great sounding piano...

Rabbits. Sheep.

We've never used Sonos before - very nice.

Comes with its own wood & walking distance to the pub.

I can't think of anything that wasn't lovely.

Eight of us stayed for a week. It took a few hours to navigate the huge house. The rooms are all stunning, all en-suite and each has its own attraction. A great place to dine in once you get used to the cooker. Lots of little snugs for a quiet read. Everything worked. Well placed for all sorts of days out all within an hour. Well worth a repeat visit.

I booked Great Bidlake Manor to celebrate a significant birthday. My wife and I were joined by five other couples and the house proved to be a superb venue for relaxing and celebrations. The facilities are second to none - my wife did the catering in the well appointed kitchen and all twelve of us were able to sit comfortably at the beautiful period dining table in the large dining hall. All six bedrooms are wonderfully decorated and furnished with extra king sized beds and on-suite bathrooms. Plenty of fiction and non fiction books in the library together w

If you?re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and spend some quality time with friends or family, here is a great place to go! This is a lovely large country house that quickly feels like home, whilst at the same time making you feel like you?re staying in a luxury hotel. I?m guessing this has been achieved by the owner being a Bidlake, and the house having 750 years of his family history.

My partner and I joined 5 other couples to celebrate a ?big birthday?. The large double bedrooms all have an en suite bathroom - with a fabulous hig
