“Amazing anniversary weekend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We agree whole-heatedly with the previous review!! Blagdon is superb in every single way. Steve and Liz have struck just the right balance between being friendly and professional, it feels welcoming yet very special.

We left feeling restored, relaxed and very well fed indeed! Our puppy Conker loved it too and enjoyed playing with Cassia and Mace. The stunning gardens provided plenty of space for a walk and room to play ball. We cannot wait to return as soon as possible! The only problem will be deciding which of the other amazing rooms to try next!

Room Tip: We had the Larkworthy suite which had an extra sitting room area which was perfect for our puppy Con...

We chose Blagdon Manor primarily because we were looking for a comfortable place to stay that offered good food and a dog friendly atmosphere. What we got so far exceeded our expectations that we will definitely be returning. Billed as a restaurant with rooms Blagdon Manor is run by owners Steve and Liz Morey. It is set in its own grounds offering several acres for dog walks and chilling out. It is one of those rare places that looks good on first inspection but actually gets better when you check out the detail! The rooms are very well appointed with quality bathrooms, powerful showers and plush decor. Dogs are made truly welcome and are provided with bowls, beds and home made treats. The manor, originally a 17th century farmhouse, has a bar and several comfortable public rooms where you will find all sorts of nick knacks to make your stay more enjoyable. There are maps of the surrounding areas with walks and attractions, magazines and little jars of sweeties!

Liz takes care of the front of house duties - the balance that she strikes between friendliness and professionalism is just right. Never intrusive but always available should you need anything.

Steve is the chef and a very good one indeed. He has worked with some of the best in the land and it shows. Locally sourced ingredients are transformed into imaginative dishes, bursting with flavour and beautifully presented. Every mouthful was a delight. Thank you very much!

Finally a mention must be made of Ruth. To call her simply a waitress does not do her justice. A local lady who is clearly very proud of the food she delivers to the table, she is witty, fun and wholly professional all at the same time.

Whether you have a dog or not do yourself a favour and book a fews days at Blagdon Manor. You won't be disappointed.

Just spent a lovely relaxing afternoon enjoying a cream tea with friends at Blagdon Manor, such a wonderful setting to take two special people for a surprise treat. Thank you for your warm hospitality as always and for the lovely scones and delicious Tea.

Spent some time pondering where to take our best friends for a 70th birthday and was recommended Blagdon Manor. The setting of the house is delightful and had it been a nice day the views and gardens would have been very special. The house is beautifully furnished which is enhanced by the very warm welcome received from Liz and the dogs. The scones and homemade jam were lovely. Liz gave us a little look around the rest of the house and we would now love to return and sample sunday lunch.

We went to Blagdon Manor for our wedding anniversary on Sunday April 6th.
Great welcome and very relaxing pre-dinner drinks in the lounge in front of the log burner. The dinner surpassed our expectations; the variety and quality of the food was just excellent and no question the chef Steve knows how to use fresh ingredients to full effect.
We are looking forward to visiting again.

Can't praise this hotel/restaurant too highly. Sunday lunch exceeded expectations. A good walk round the grounds afterwards for dogs and owners made the day complete. If you are visiting this area a super place to stay - with not a solar wind turbine in sight.
