“Historic shooting lodge offers an intimate, Olga Polizzi styled stay. Relax in the stunning grounds or in the library. Beautiful rooms overlook the valley and stretch of private river. Italian meets Spanish cuisine with Jose Graziosi's delicious dishes. Good for outdoor-types and families.”

Hotel Review

The Duke of Bedford’s charming 1812 'cottage ornée' is Olga Polizzi’s latest country hotel, run by her daughter Alex. Beautifully decorated, yet full of its original character as a sturdy shooting and fishing lodge, the house stands in a stunning setting: in a secret valley, with gardens by Humphrey Repton and richly coloured woods. Good food, languorous terrace, peace, quiet and elegance assured.

Sunday Times Ultimate 100 British Hotels 2014

Georgiana, Duchess of Bedford, didn’t do understated: her Regency lodge on the edge of Dartmoor is a boutique bodice-ripper..

Hotel Endsleigh

"easily the best new restaurant I've come across in ages, that the hotel itself is magnificent, and that it stands in what is self-evidently (even to this bucolophobic urban Jew) among the most exquisite rural settings on the planet."

Hotel Endsleigh

"At last, an English country house hotel for people who loathe traditional country house hotels for their whispery dining rooms, dusty chintz, and phlegmatic plumbing."

Originally published by Conde Nast Traveller (view article)

Hotel Endsleigh

"Built in 1812 as the holiday home for the Duchess of Bedford, Georgiana Russell, this wildly romantic, chintz-free country estate, run by Channel 5's Hotel Inspector, Alex Polizzi, is steeped in royal history."

"Why I love Devon" by Fiona Duncan

If it’s the West Country you want, but Cornwall is too far, then Devon is the answer. Craggy coves and cream teas, surfing, hiking on Exmoor and Dartmoor and pints in pub gardens.
